standard Windows Camera adds SlowMo feature for Lumia 1520 & 930 + Sample


The latest update for Windows Camera on Windows 10 mobile devices has brought the ability to film videos in “SlowMo” (or 120 fps) on a limited number of devices. Currently the feature is only available on the Lumia 930 (icon) and the Lumia 1520; but it’s most likely going to be present on the Lumia 950 & 950 XL as well. The new SlowMo filming can be toggled from within the Windows Camera ui (next to the flash and front facing camera toggles), allowing quick access; once the video is filmed (in real-time on your view finder), you can view the SlowMo version in the photos app, where you can also edit the SlowMo choosing to slow it down or speed it up, and even make select parts of the video play at full speed.

Check out a quick sample I filmed on my Lumia 1520 (running the latest Windows Insider build) below:

Currently the recording quality is limited to 720p, and it does appear to be a bit underwhelming in terms of quality (the video above was filmed under a bright LED desk/studio light), I also wish the video recorded audio, as that’s often the best part of SlowMo videos.
