How Does Slow Motion Video Work?

Blog Week 2 - How SloMo Works

You’ve probably seen some amazing slow-motion videos around the Internet. Have you ever wondered how they work? Slow motion video is a simple, yet ingenious concept. To understand how it works, you have to remember that videos are just a collection of images taken and displayed at a very fast rate, with an audio overlay.

Most videos are shot and viewed at 30 FPS, or frames per second. Slow motion video records at a frame rate much higher than that, capturing a lot more images very quickly. When played back at normal speed, this makes it look like the video is slowed down. Different cameras have different shutter speeds, so certain cameras may be better for different speeds. There’s no upper limit on how fast the cameras can shoot, and some take video at up to 1,000,000 FPS!

Slow motion video is great for capturing quick but interesting moments of your life. Some fun ways to use it include observing a bubble bursting or confetti falling, and seeing the details which are normally too fast for the human eye. Any activity which involves water is also a great idea, as water can look extraordinary when slowed down. This can be fun for outdoor events like picnics or barbecues. There are tons of creative uses for slow motion video, and the only limit is your imagination.
