LG G4 slow motion camera test

In the last couple of years, we’ve seen camera phones add slow motion video to their box of tricks, meaning YouTube is getting full of hypnotically slow movies. Now, the LG G4 has one of the best cameras we’ve ever seen, and it has a slow motion mode. So we decided to test it out – and as it’s the Wimbledon final this weekend, we’ve given our test a distinct tennis theme.

As you can see from the video, you get a pretty fun perspective on things using slow motion on the LG G4. The video still looks bright and fast moving objects look crisp and clear as they’re slowed down.

If we’re honest, though, we’d have liked the LG G4 slow motion if it was a little slower. It can record at one eighth speed, in other words every second in real time lasts for eight seconds in the video. That was great for showing the anguish on our tennis star’s face as he crushed a trifle with a powerful forehand, but it was a tiny bit too fast to really capture the explosion of the food.

Of course, this is nit-picking. The G4 really does have a top slow motion camera. When the technology was first introduced to smartphones, a lot of the videos looked really dark as they had to capture frames eight times faster, but the G4’s video is bright.

It also manages to record all those frames in HD, which means you get lots of detail that makes slow motion even more impressive.

If you’ve captured something amazing in slow motion, share it with us in the comments below – and don’t forget to tell us which slow motion camera phone you used. And if you want to find out more about what makes the LG G4 great take a look at its unique features.
