What is Super Slow-mo?

Thanks to an enhanced speed sensor on your phone, Super Slow-mo lets you shoot at an incredible speed of 960 frames per second. While Super Slow-mo on Galaxy S9 and below capture .2 or .4-second increments in slow motion, the S10 and later can capture twice as much: .4 or .8 seconds.

What is Super Slow-mo?

Note: Super Slow-mo only supports HD resolution. Limited to 20 shots per video.

Super Slow-mo (Auto)

If you want the best possible slow motion, use the Super Slow-mo Auto mode. In this mode, the camera automatically detects motion and then slows it down. It also lets you add a slow-motion moment more than once per video.

Super Slow-mo (Auto)

From the Camera app, tap MORE, and then select SUPER SLOW-MO. Then, make sure Auto mode is on by tapping the Motion Detection icon. It looks like three small circles inside of a square. When you are ready, tap Record. Hold your phone steady to start motion detection. When your camera detects movement in the square, it will automatically start recording in Super Slow-mo.

Super Slow-mo (Manual)

The Manual Super Slow-mo version lets you manually activate slow motion. When you use this feature, there will be one slow motion effect per video.

From the Camera app, tap MORE, and then select SUPER SLOW-MO. Then, make sure Auto mode is turned off. When it is off, the Motion Detection icon will be gray. It looks like three small circles inside of a square.

Super Slow-mo (Manual)

When you are ready, tap Record. Hold your phone steady and capture the action. Your phone will stop recording after a few seconds and automatically create a slow motion video.

Super Slow-mo tips

Although Super Slow-mo is super advanced, there are still some things you will need to take into consideration when filming slow motion videos.

Check out the following tips to get the best results with Super Slow-mo:

  • Make sure there are no moving objects in the on-screen square (other than the object you are trying to record in Super Slow-mo) because it can trigger Super Slow-mo recording in Auto mode.

  • Avoid recording in flickering or fluorescent light, as it can trigger Super Slow-mo recording in Auto mode. It can also make streaks or flashing lines appear in the video playback.

  • Record in an area with sufficient light. We recommend recording under LED lighting or sunlight. Recording in a dark setting will cause noise and may trigger Super Slow-mo recording in Auto mode.
