Samsung 1000fps Sensor and GoPro Hero 6 240fps FHD!

Samsung 1000fps Sensor

A new Samsung Rumor estimates that Samsung has been working on a 1000fps capable sensor for years now but the latest aims to have it present on their next 2018 flagship phones. These will be able to compete with the Sony Stacked Mobile sensors present on the Xperia XZ Premium and XZs Phones.   The Korean Site ET News has the information on a 3 layer stacked sensor that will allow for 1000fps frame rates on the next generation imaging systems for the Samsung flagship smart-phone line.

If Samsung’s Galaxy S9 debuts with this new stacked sensor technology it will be a first for Samsung to get really serious about slow motion performance on mobile phones.  Apple, Google and Sony have been far above Samsung in Performance for many years and this will be a way for the Korean manufacturer to get the foot in the door and compete with Sony on their own turf.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

iPhone X & 8 Have 240fps Full HD!

iPhone X 240fps Slow Motion

From earlier rumors, we were already privy to the information on the 240fps full HD from a code leak that showed it as an option on the new iOS beta.  There was also a secondary rumor that stated 480fps on HD 720p as a code snippet.  On the final phones, there seems to be no mention of this extra frame rate which possibly is being saved for a future mobile product by Apple.

The new Phones X (for ten) and 8 with the 8 Plus both have the same improved camera modules with the new A11 Bionic chip which brings new levels of performance to smartphones which also permits the processing of a larger frame buffer for full HD 1080p at 240fps and as an extra bonus for the first time in a Phone, 4k 60fps recording.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

fps2000 & fps4000 Camera Line Specs Released!

fps2000 & fps4000 Cameras

After a long hiatus since the fps1000 project was founded, Graham Rowan the creator of both that Kickstarter project and the fps1000HD which has shipped to backers; is now announcing two new camera specs aimed at satisfying the original Kickstarter project backers who did not receive their camera.  The new models replace the fps1000 original, Hex and 4k models in a six camera matrix that is divided into two main lines.

The first line is the fps2000 which has a whopping 320 Gigabytes of flash memory that will record up to 120 seconds of continuous video at the maximum resolution and highest frame rate of 2000fps.  The fps4000 line is essentially double the speed of the camera maximum frame rate of 4000fps depending on configuration and 640 Gigabytes of flash storage.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

GH5 Firmware 2.0 Has Huge Improvements!

GH5 Firmware 2.0

The just announced Firmware for the Panasonic GH5 offers the promised improvements when the camera was launched like 400Mbps All-I compression for 4k 10 bit recording and or 200MBPS 1080p.  Also promised was near 6k Anamorphic shooting and HDR Ready Log Recording Gamma. All of that is in the firmware but the surprise comes from all the extra improvements that made the way into the 2.0 firmware release.

The new unexpected features range from a full tethering option for Mac or PC with free downloadable software to improved autofocus recording which was one of the weakest features of the camera.  As far as slow motion related improvements it seems the firmware is not making any headway there. The bitrate improvements do not mention the VFR mode.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Galaxy Note 8 Maintains 720p 240fps!

Galaxy Note 8 Slow Motion

As predicted the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not improve on the Note 7 or Galaxy S8 phones when it comes to slow motion capabilities. It maxes out at 1080p 60fps and only allows 720p 240fps for slow motion. Missing is the 120fps 1080p modes of competitive flagship phones like the iPhone 7 or Google Pixel.

The Phone has delivered in most other fronts however with probably the best screen yet on a phablet phone at 6.3″ Quad HD+ Super AMOLED (2960 x 1440) 521 ppi resolution. There is also an extra attention put on the battery safety which according to Samsung is not only safe but amply tested to rigorous conditions. It is 3300mAh which should last for a full day of use even with the gigantic screen.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Huawei Mate 10 Hints Slow Motion Feature?

Huawei Mate 10 Hints Slow Motion

In a recent video release of what is rumored to be the Huawei Mate 10 phone, we noticed several clips cut in the teaser shot in slow motion with good quality. If these are shot with the new Leica branded dual camera module from Huawei; it may be the slow motion phone to show Sony competition this year.

The cameras on the rear side of the phone hint at a 12MP color module and a 20MP monochrome detail module.  The 12MP sensor will probably be used for the slow motion recording if it pans out. Huawei has not been at the forefront of high speed video on mobile phones or even competitive but this new handset could change all that.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←
