Whoa! Slow that video down with HTC One A9 - Sprint Product Ambassadors

Sprint Product Ambassador

So another cool feature beyond the HyperLapse mode on the HTC One A9 is pretty much an opposite speed effect.  This feature called plainly, “Slow Motion” can be used to give you a bit of added effects to certain situations.  I especially find this useful when trying to steady my hand during a far-away zoom (on a stationary image) or to give a little dramatic effect on a subject that needs a little added accent beyond what real-time permits.

To use this mode, it just needs to be chosen from the menu and shot just like any regular video. It looks to only be available using the front facing camera.  You can film either with or without the flash lighting and although zoom is available, it’s not adjustable during filming. Both portrait or landscape modes are available but the record speed appears to be a fixed 25% playback speed.

Don’t worry though. Upon reviewing your clip, if you decided to speed it up slightly or fully, you can easily do so after the fact. Just choose the edit option from the selection menu where you can save under the default capture of 25%, a faster speed of 50% or normalize things to normal playback speed.

Use your creativity to branch out and see what is possible.  Just another exciting tool that the A9 gives you to branch out.
