Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8+ Plus: Record Slow Motion Video

Your new Galaxy S8 or its upgraded version, the S8+ Plus is beautiful in design and functionality. Many users will be keen to make full use of the phones slow motion capabilities. You can shoot fantastic 720p @240 fps shots in a super dramatic slow motion clip.


Here is a step by step guide on how to start capturing slow motion video:

  1. First, open the camera app that is built into your phone as standard.
  2. Find and touch “Mode”. It is at the bottom of the app towards the left side.
  3. Now tap “Slow motion”from the menu of options that turns up.
  4. Once you do this the red button to activate the recording will come up. Tap it to start the clip.


Once you have completed these steps your new video should be saved in the gallery of your phone. Slow motion can be useful for all types of situations. From dramatic posts of animal behavior to the filming of action or sports sequences where every detail matters.

Due to the nature of differentiated frame rates, you might find the battery lasts significantly less time the more you shoot in slow motion. We advise taking small bursts of clips instead of attempting to take long winded shots if you are planning to be out for large amounts of time.

Hopefully now you know how to record videos in slow motion on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
