    I think the slow mo will look great, but yeah it's not something that people are really going to use that much.

    Agreed. I bought a point and shoot with slomo, used it a few times but never since.

    I use Siri daily.

    I doubt I'll use the slo-mo all that often. There times while my malamutes are playing/running/jumping that I'll use it. Some sports events I go to I'll use it. It'll be more of a situational thing, but something that might cool to use periodically.

    Like watching my dog chase her tail, but now in slow-motion.

    Which will be about 0.5% of the population.

    I will actually probably use it, but can't see many others using it.

    ----------

    Really? I find that unless there is complete silence, it's useless. I have 2 kids under 4, the slightest noise from them and Siri ceases to recgonise my commands.

    Slow-Motion on the iPhone 5S will do wonders for the POV video industry :D

    It's a nice feature but at the end of the day I shoot with my iPhone but I edit on my Mac. iMovie can do this already. :)

    I assume that there will be a way for a camera app to create high framerate video (not just slow motion, but real time motion in 60 fps for example)

    It's a good ad don to the iPhone but at the end of the day it's just a smartphone camera and videos just arnt as good as on a real video recorder. Slo mow is a feature that everyone will use the first day and after that only 1% or the people will continue using it.

    Most people don't even know how to tap/focus with their iPhones. lol. I am very interested in seeing this new flash, however. I hate flash but if it's what the keynotes touts it to be, low light game changer. :D

    There will be people having fun with it, but most of the people will use their phone without knowing about this feature :D

    Really. Texting in the car. Setting timers. Setting reminders/calendar events. Those are the things I use her most for ... I find it faster and easier to just hit the home button and say 'set a timer for 20 minutes' rather than unlocking the phone (which takes time) getting to the timer, fiddling with the dial to get where I want, etc.

    Same thing with calendar and reminders. For example, after putting Frontline medication on my puppies, I just hit the button for siri and say 'remind me in 3 weeks to give the dogs their medicine' ... and it's done. I don't need to bring up the calendar app, calculate 3 weeks, pick a day, click add details, etc.

    And, of course, texting in the car ... so much yay. :)

    I hope whatever you end up hitting isn't a live being.

    I think you missed the part about Siri. Total hands free operation.

    You can clean that self-righteous look off your face now.

    I'm going to assume you have it connected to your car via Bluetooth to activate Siri

    Regardless, I find Siri texting to not be that great. Siri tends to hear the wrong words at some point and you have to start from scratch which I find really frustrating

    Talking on the phone is illegal in many states/provinces not because one hand is off the wheel, but because communicating with others while driving is very distracting. Doubly so if it's through a phone.

    Hope your car also gets totalled so you'd have to ride a bicycle.

    I'm sure the 5S's slowmo will be a fun gimmick, I know I used to enjoy being able to film at 60fps before Apple killed it.
