60 FPS Video??

    At the iOS 7 WWDC presentation one of the new features they showed on the screen was "60-fps video capture". I know the 5s can do 120-fps but this was shown months before the announced the new phones.

    Anyone have any idea what happened with this feature?

    That is the slow motion video recording.
    It records 120fps of 720p.

    Normal video is still 1080p 60fps.

    wrong normal video is 30fps 1080p

    you can download Slopro which will force your iPhone 5 camera to record 60fps and if I may it does an awesome job it looks like Apple did it. this will slomow your videos if you so choose. this is just a restriction from apple I'm sure when jailbreak comes along we'll be able to activate this function.

    We are talking about the iPhone 5S

    EDIT: well, I was talking about the 5S... maybe the OP is actually talking about the 5

    I assumed that since the feature was shown at the iOS 7 announcement it would apply to the iPhone 5. Why would they list it as an iOS 7 feature if it only works on as yet unannounced phones.

    Standard video is 30-fps.

    My understanding is that the iPhone 5 can record 60fps at 720p. However, the stock camera app does not offer that option. The API is available in iOS 7, though, for third-party apps to do it.

    Edit: I see that SloPro has already been updated to use the iOS 7 API.

    OP: As Lava Lamp Freak said, you can 60fps on the iPhone 5 via 3rd party app - SloPro does it (I can confirm it does 60fps at 720p).

    60fps is good enough for a great slow motion video. But if you want true epicness then get the 5S.

    60FPS video is stuck together with widescreen (16:9) photo mode...up Cook's arse.

    Ok, I get it now. Thanks for that.
