Galaxy Note 9 Slow Motion Initial Samples!

Now that a few days have passed we now have the first few samples of what the Galaxy Note 9 is capable of in 960fps slow-motion mode. It shows about the same effective resolution as the Galaxy S9 and S9+ which share the same camera system.  The Note 9 is supposed to increase the dynamic range but it is unclear how much benefit it will show in a resolution starved 720p high-speed mode.

The best selling factor for the Note 9 as a slow-motion device is the doubling of recording time to 0.4 seconds from the 0.2sec available on the Galaxy S9. This transforms into a 12.8-second video played back at NTSC 30p which makes it much more enjoyable than the 6.4 sec on the other Samsung phone.

All in all it looks like at first glance to be a great alternative to other 960fps capable phones and while the price of the Note 9 starting at US $999 should put off plenty of buyers, in a few months it should become a sub $800 device which on a payment plan it doesn’t hurt too much. If however, you want to have more control over slow motion then getting a higher frame rate capable camera like a Sony RX series for about the same price is a better bet overall bet.  We will have more samples of the Note 9’s slow motion in a few weeks as more and more users get to play with the feature.

  1. I am actually not really impressed by the sharpness of the clips at 960 fps. It could be that the uploading process to YT will cause a loss in quality.

    I am wondering where to look for the next jump in high frame rate quality. At the moment Canon and Nikon are getting into the mirrorless camera systems but I dont think they will offer more than 240 fps in their new line of cameras.

    1. Yes the Note 9 is about the same sub 720p frame as the Galaxy S9. Not bad for a phone but the quality could improve a lot from here. The new mirrorless wars will start to heat up by early 2019, higher frame rates will surely be a deciding factor for many. 240fps would be a great base to start with we expect Panasonic to at least be at that speed. 320fps could be a short-term aim for 1080p and 960fps for 720p in newer Sony cameras with better frame quality.
