I have always loved to watch slow motion videos as they are a treat to watch. Slow motion videos showcase every single expression and action in its full-fledged form. Thanks to the highly efficient A11 Bionic chip in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, recording ultra slow motion videos at 1080 pixels/240 frames per second is now possible.
These latest smartphones from Apple feature cameras which are able to deliver slow motion frame rate to 240 frames per second in full HD resolution (1920-by-1080 pixels).
Ever since I laid my hands on the new iPhone, I have shot a couple of slow motion (1080 pixels/240 frames per second) videos with the device and without any doubt, I must say that the results are very impressive. So, do you also want to try out this feature on your own iPhone 8/8 Plus or iPhone X too? Well, read on to learn how to use this amazing feature on start recording your own slow-mo videos too.
