We live in a fast-paced world where things happen in a jiffy. Things are so fast, that the moment gets over even before we realise that it took place. You all must have experienced how you failed to capture a moment, just because your smartphone’s camera failed to fire up, or it missed the focus badly.
While this might be the case with recording your memories in their still form, but what about reliving those moments? Well, that can be accomplished very easily by shooting a video of that memory. But as we know that things happen too fast for us humans to understand their true nature, it would be better to watch them in slow-motion.
You might have watched a slow-mo documentary shot using expensive professional grade cameras costing lakhs of rupees and wondered whether you can do such a thing on your smartphone. Well, to some extent yes.
Why Slow-motion videos?
This is the right question to ask if you don’t understand why would anyone want to create slo-mo videos on a mobile phone. But I have a simple answer to this:
