    Hey guys! I made this awesome Slo-Mo video on my iPhone 2 days ago and I finally uploaded it to YouTube. I got the phone a day before this trip and I could not have been luckier with the timing. If I hadn't had this phone for this trip, I would have had a different experience. Check it out.iPhone 5s Slo-Mo in the Golan Heights

    Filmed. Edited. Exported. All on the iPhone 5s.

    Awesome footage, my friend. The feature seems too legit to quit. (Dun! Dun!)

    Poorly edited in my opinion. There were many parts that slomotioned for no other reason than to slomotion. That took away from the quality of the video and made it somewhat confusing since it was hard to tell when you were reducing the speed sometimes. Just because you can slomotion does not mean you should.

    How did you edit it?
    Whenever I put a vid with slomo into iMovie (iPhone) it just plays at normal speed?

    I transfered between iPhones, it was a little tricky but at the end... It was worth it.

    It feels like apple haven't thought through the slo mo feature properly at all!
    Being unable to edit on the same phone is ridiculous !

    This. Please people, please, do not shoot anything in slo-motion that is normally not exciting or happening quickly. Car crashes, Explosions, Jumps, etc. are ok. A man talking, freeway driving, stationary object, no bueno.

    It's called criticism. Or would you rather we all tell him is was the greatest thing ever and that he should be a director, even though it wasn't the greatest thing ever.

    The 1st 40 secs were unnecessary to be slo-mo, but it looks like you kids had fun.

    If I was me, I would never have taken a brand new iPhone to any river, lake, sea, etc.

    I always leave it hidden in the car and take a dummy phone instead.

    If I wanted criticism from Stephen Speilberg I would have asked him. I didn't come here for you to tell me that I deserve an Academy Award, I came here to share an experience I had and how I (as in me, not you) utilized the Slow Motion video capability. If you feel as if I did a poor job then you obviously missed the purpose of this thread.

    Boom, son!

    Pretty neat job. The diving parts really do work better in slow-mo, but you've gotta try it out to know. Is that music from Scott and Brendo, the Kitten Air people?
