If you’re just starting out with the Samsung Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1, being able to take good quality pictures and to record decent videos is probably everything you need. But what you don’t know is that you can get a lot more than that, at least in terms of video recording. Long story short, the camera module of the J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1 can not only record regular videos, but also slow-motion videos. And believe us when we tell you, most users who find out about it are pretty excited.
What’s this feature about and how can you too start taking advantage of it? First of all, a slow-motion video reproduces whatever you have recorded at a much slower pace. It doesn’t mean it records at this speed, but rather that it transforms those rapid movements initially captured and replicates them slower, thus generating interesting, funny or just weird video materials. The processing power of the smartphone is responsible for all that and to see what it means in practice, you can test it right away.
Want To Record A Slow-Motion Video On Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1?
- Head to the Home Screen, where you have the Camera app shortcut, and launch it;
- Look at the Camera main window, on the live window, to be more specific, and you should spot the Mode button;
- Select Mode and select the Slow-Motion option from there;
- Finally, record your video like you always do.
If you are a bit picky and you don’t just settle for the default settings, you might want to configure a specific feature first. For this purpose, go to the Settings of the Camera app and you’ll find a series of slow motion filming speeds listed in there: x1/2, x1/4, and x1/8. Try them all, one by one, and compare the results to decide how you’d like your slow-motion videos to show from now on.
Just to give you some hints, the best effect is considered the x1/8 one, whereas x1/2 is the weakest effect. x1/4 is an average option and, naturally, by looking at the different videos, you’ll spot the difference for yourself. Now go do some testing on the slow-motion option of your Samsung Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1!
