Hey guys.
Having a strange issue with the Slo Mo mode on the iPhone X. The camera flickers and I don't know what's causing it!

  • I've tried different environments and lightning.
  • I've tried restarting my iPhone.
  • I've tried force closing the app and trying again.
  • I've tried changing the settings from 240fps to 120fps - this only reduces the flicker!
  • iOS 11.1.1 didn't fix it.
Here's a video I recorded of the video:https://twitter.com/squidsir/status/928683443550113793

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Just checked mine. It's fine, so I don't think it's software then. I'd get it replaced.

Your video example is quite poor. Are you in a building with LED or Flourescent lighting?

SloMo needs lots of light, so it will crank up the ISO to pull in light, which has a tendency to amplify any sync issues with your surrounding lighting.

Can you try one outdoors in sunlight, or even overcast?
