We were alerted yesterday by our reader Robert1200 and today again by James of a new development in low cost high quality slow motion cameras. The fps1000 is about to change the equation all over again. See the already funded Kickstarter Campaign here!
Go Pro Hero 4 Black samples have been hitting the net and included are 1080p 120fps tests. The quality seems much better than what the Hero 3 black was able to do in 720p but it is below what 1080p 60 can deliver on the same cameras.
The open source camera AXIOM by apertuspromises to be the first real solution with open source code to fully control and push the limits of a professional camera for a low price.
The latest specs hint at a possible 300fps at full 4k resolution for their 2015 AXIOM Gamma release which will be in the realm of fantasy for the majority of people without a Bentley or Veyron parked outside your front door.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
It’s confirmed, the Hero 4 has no 720p 240fps mode like the PetaPixel release claimed.
The camera however does offer a 240p mode in the WVGA mode at Ultra Wide Setting With just 848*480 pixels 16 by 9. Not enough resolution to reach HD but good to have over standard VGA.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
We have gathered a few iPhone 6 slow motion samples that show the strength and weaknesses of the phone. Noise wise it is a great performer and the quality of the codec looks to be very good. Aliasing and moire is still a problem as there seems to be some line skipping to generate 120fps and 240fps. There is also a drop in quality in 240p compared to 120p. We estimate that more likes are skipped to get to 240p but it is still not to bad a drop.
We however can deem it the best quality slow motion from a phone so far released. You can’t go wrong with the iPhone 6 as a slow motion portable device, especially if your phone contract is renewing. Competition will heat up in the slow motion phone race when Mediatek releases phones by the end of this year with higher capabilities and full HD 1080p. Until those are released and tested the iPhone 6 is kind of the slow-mo phones…Enjoy the samples!→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
