App: SloPro – Super Slow Motion November 18, 2013
When the iPhone 5S came out one feature that really caught my attention was the addition of slow motion inside the video settings. I remember being really upset when Apple upgraded the iMove application years ago and removed the proper smooth slow motion settings that had been available for years. It meant I had to open Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere in order to get a proper slow motion effect.
Here you can see some examples of the built in slow motion feature using the iPhone 5S: http://9to5mac.com/2013/09/25/gorgeous-demo-of-iphone-5s-slow-motion-video-capabilities/
As I was not ready to upgrade my phone based on one truly amazing feature so I went on a hunt to find an alternative. That’s when I found SloPro (http://sloproapp.com/) and I have been really impressed. SloPro will enable older iPhones to add slow motion effects.
Now, the new iPhone 5S has double the frame rate so it’s not going to be exactly the same on older devices but it’s still pretty neat. The iPhone 5, 5C, iPad Mini can record at 60FPS and the iPhone 4S & previous, iPod Touch, iPad will record at 30FPS when using the application. There is a free version that will watermark your videos and after a few quick videos I quickly fell in love and paid for the full version. I still use this app months later and regret nothing.
Here are some videos that I created using the SloPro app:
