iPhone XS – How To Record Slow Motion Videos

The iPhone XS has an excellent slow motion video recording capability that allows you to capture high quality slow motion footage up to 1080p at 240 fps. Here is a comprehensive guide on how to record slow motion videos on the iPhone XS:

Enable Slow Motion Video

To enable slow motion video recording on your iPhone XS:

  1. Open the Camera app
  2. Swipe left on the modes at the bottom until you reach “Slo-Mo”
  3. Tap the red record button to start recording slow motion video

By default, the iPhone XS will record slow motion video at 1080p resolution and 120 fps.

Change Slow Motion Video Settings

To change the slow motion video settings:

  1. Go to Settings > Camera > Record Slo-mo
  2. Select the resolution and fps

You can choose between 1080p at 120 fps or 240 fps. 240 fps will produce smoother and slower motion, but takes up more storage space.

Tips for Shooting Slow Motion Video

Here are some tips for capturing great slow motion videos on your iPhone XS:

  • Keep the camera steady – Even minor shakes are amplified in slow motion, so use a tripod or brace yourself against something.
  • Have adequate lighting – Slow motion videos require fast shutter speeds, so you need ample lighting. Shoot outdoors or add artificial light if indoors.
  • Track moving subjects – Choose a subject in motion to showcase the slow motion effect. Pan smoothly to track the subject.
  • Shoot bursts – You don’t always know exactly when the peak action will occur, so shoot multiple takes.
  • Use quick toggles – While recording, you can quickly change the video resolution and fps using the toggles in the camera app.

Edit Your Slow Motion Video

After shooting, you can edit your slow motion video in the Photos app:

  1. Open the video in Photos
  2. Tap Edit
  3. Drag the vertical bars to set start and end points for the slow motion effect

This allows you to precisely control which portion of the video plays in dramatic slow motion.

Share Your Slow Motion Masterpiece

Once edited, you can directly share your stellar slow motion video to social media or messaging apps from Photos. The iPhone XS makes capturing cinematic quality slow motion simple and fun!

With some practice and the right techniques, you’ll be creating epic slow motion videos to dazzle your friends in no time. So grab your iPhone XS and start shooting! Let me know if you have any other questions.
