    I tend to remember that the 930 received a camera update to record slow motion video. Is this also possible on the 950?

    It already works right out of the box. I think it's only 120fps in 720p though, but still there.

    Can anyone confirm this for me... 120fps @ 720p???

    I'd like to add it to the Specs + Features thread.

    I know it is in some builds on Insider. I'm looking for confirmation of what is seen on a live 950.

    Thanks though.

    Yeah both articles don't give a confirmation on the 950, but it's a feature added into the Lumia Camera app. The 950 has the camera app doesn't it? I would see no reason for it to not be there.

    I hear ya though, you need official confirmation. If I would have had my 950 shipped to my house (instead of having it shipped to my in law's half way across the country), it would be in my hands right now. But alas, I relied on the estimated shipping dates from AT&T. Never again...

    Hopefully someone can confirm this.

    ugh, I hate terminology gone wrong.... no camera records in slow motion, but in high framerate. because you are recording in a high framerate, you get super smooth playback at the framerate you recorded at, with the added benefit of smooth playback when you slow down the framerate.

    ok, with that out of the way, if I recall, the 950 can do high framerate record, which will give you slow motion video. I don't recal the resolution though (pretty sure NOT at 4K)

    I think he mainly wants to know if the 950 only records at 720p as the 930 does.

    Dan commented on an article he wrote about the slow motion video update. He said that the hardware is more than capable of doing 1080p high frame rate. He said it might come in a future update.

    Yea I know sd810 is capable of that (I'm not exactly sure about 808) but I was hoping they will come with this future preinstalled. Also would like 720p at 240 fps

    I got my 950 from AT&T and it only goes up to 60fps... no 120fps option even at 720p. The AT&T site says it WILL do 120fps at 720p, but as it comes from the store, no, it doesn't, unless I'm doing it wrong.

    Took me awhile to figure out too.

    You've got to wait for the camera app to update. It doesn't work "out of the box." Once the camera app updates you'll get a turtle icon on the screen, that is what you hit to do slow-mo, no messing in settings or anything

    Reviving this thread as I want to know the same thing. I've just got a 950 but I dont see any frame rate higher than 60fps.

    Is 120 (or higher) available?

    This confusion is due to the poor interface. If you go into settings while in the camera, it will list several Resolution x Framerate options, and the highest one in that list is 60 fps. If you are in the camera app and select video, there will be a turtle icon at the top. That turns on the slo-mo. Supposedly that is the 120 fps setting. It is a little weird, because if you look at the file info from a slo-mo capture it says 30 fps.

    It seems like the recording interface should specify the fps, and then the playback should specify the fps.

    because despite capturing at a higher framerate, it's set to playback at a lower framerate.

    Thanks, I see it now... (was it really always there..??)

    I agree that for such a good camera, the interface is a little poor. Some of the settings I myself would like quick access to are burried a bit too deep, like aspect ratio for example. I would personally prefer to know what framerate I was shooting in as it makes a difference to how I'm going to use it later.

    I'm still a bit confused why there isn't a Panorama feature too... or did I miss that as well?

    No turtle icon on video mode interface on camera app for 640 XL (14393.5 fast Ring)

    But when I go to the gallery

    wp_ss_20160808_0008.png

    And press edit, I am presented with these options

    wp_ss_20160808_0009.png

    Original Speed (trim video by adjusting the white markers)

    wp_ss_20160808_0010.png

    Selecting Slow motion gives me an option to adjust (blue markers) which section I want the slow motion.

    wp_ss_20160808_0011.png

    And for super slow mo, I only have one marker to specify a particular moment.

    wp_ss_20160808_0012.png


    I guess I cant have super slo mo because max capability of 640 XL is 1080p 30fps.
    It does stutter a bit while live previewing, but once it's saved, works fine.
