One of the new features packed into Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7 is a new rear camera unit and it seems that the new sensor also works pretty well for slow motion video capture, as the video above from EuroTech attests to. The five minute video was captured at 720p and 240fps, which has been slowed down to a more standard frame rate to create a slow motion effect.

 

Impressively, the video was captured without the use of a tripod and still manages to look very steady. The Galaxy S7 camera’s optical image stabilization certainly looks like it works pretty well. Colors pop nicely, the image brightness holds up well and everything appears nice and crisp, which isn’t always the case when capturing video at very fast frame rates.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is capable of recording video at various quality levels and frame rates. 4K UHD capture is possible at 30fps, 1080p at up to 60fps, and there is a 720p optios which can be toggled to 240fps for smooth slow motion playback. All of these options are complete with HDR contrast enhancements too.

It would certainly be interesting to see what could be accomplished using Samsung’s Lens Cover attachments too. What do you think about the video quality?
