What is Slow Motion and how do I use it?

PLEASE NOTE: that the icons and screens may differ slightly from the illustrations below depending on your device, operating system and theme.

Slow Motion allows you to record a video then play it back up to 8 times slower than normal. The Super Slow-mo feature plays your videos back 32 times slower than normal videos and 4 times slower than videos taken with the Slow Motion feature.
