    Has anyone found an iOS app that will slow the videos down even more?

    iMovie doesn't seem to have any speed settings at all (yet)

    You won't be able to slow down the video without loss of 'quality' since the frame rate recorded is 120fps. There's no way to make that higher.

    It's recorded at 120fps but when slomo is activated it plays at 30fps I believe.

    I'm talking about slowing the playback to 15fps etc

    I just found a free app called slopro which seems to do it and says its recording at 120fps originally too.

    Out of curiosity , what speed is it recording at on an iPhone 5 those who have one ?

    Slopro seems to do it!

    Works with vids already recorded as well as recorded in the app!

    25% seems slower than apples slomo and 500/1000fps is even slower. Don't know why they call it 500fps though

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/slopro-1000fps-slow-motion/id507232505?mt=8

    Don't forget to tap the render button else the extra slo mo looks jerky

    This is on the 1000fps setting.
    Dropbox seems to reduce the quality compared to the original though unless you choose to direct download on the link (top right)

    Pretty cool but that quality was abysmal. Hopefully it looks much better on your phone.

    If you choose the download option then it's the same quality as on the phone

    Slomo vids are only 720p on the 5s anyway and original speed under fluorescent lights isn't great.

    I'll do another when it's daylight tomoz

    I just bought this.. Is there any real benefit over apples editing? Seems like slowest is 25% which is equivalent to Apple's 120 fps to 30 fps?

    Wouldn't be surprised if they come out with an update for the 5S which provides an even slower rate. They could go to 12.5% on a 5s which would be the same as quality as 25% on a 5.

    Current advantages of Slo-Pro are:

    - You can have multiple slow or fast sections, and at different speeds -- whereas in the Photos app you can only select a single slow section

    - You can save the Slo-Pro video to your camera roll in a format that you can then grab from within an app like Facebook and retain the slo-mo. If you were to grab a native video (not from Slo-Pro) from within Facebook, you'd lose the slo-mo which is annoying. With native slo-mo videos, you need to share from the Camera Roll (not from within an app) for the slo-mo to work. Confused? That's my point -- Slo-Pro sharing of vids is less confusing!

    We ought to keep experimenting with slopro. My videos seem pretty good on my IP5. I'm curious just how much better the 5s is.

    Well "better" in this case means "slower". Since the iPhone 5s has twice the frame rate of the iPhone 5 (120 FPS vs. 60 FPS) you can go twice as slow with the same quality.

    The 500fps and 1000fps is even slower than 25% . Don't forget to choose the render type and hit render .

    It's a bit quirky in that sense. You have to tap on the area you want slow then hit render.

    I don't get why they call it 500/1000 though unless it is interpolating frames
