Check out the Galaxy S7 filming 240fps slow motion video

by: Robert TriggsFebruary 29, 2016

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?

    Are they using the Sony sensor, like Z5 and Nexus 5X/6P?

    • skyelm

      No. Its Custom Sony sensor made for Samsung. Can’t wait to see what it does next to my G4. Currently i smack My Wife’s Note 4 camera, especially the selfie.

      its a new, 240fps slow motion video.

  • Miguel SGTC Monteiro

    holy fuck it’s excellent

  • “Impressively, the video was captured without the use of a tripod and still manages to look very steady.” haha :) well of course it looks steady, it’s so slow ;)

  • Clintro

    Hahaha… the baby is LOVING it!!! This Video made me smile…LOL

  • Zenpen

    Just wait to the new LG G5 dos a slow motion video gonna lose your breath ;-) “Trust me”

    • it’s me tim-cock.

      Don’t hold your breath on that happening.

      • Zenpen

        Time will tell ;-) 1 2 3 holding ?

        • Guest

          nope it’s here and it’s shooting only at 120fps. disappointment.

          • Zenpen

            No its amazing!

  • Nallaikumaran

    iPhone copycat from Samsung Slow motion video, Samsung introduced slow motion video capturing in 2013 (S4 and note 2)

    Samsung Galaxy S4, note 2 are capable of slowing down recording video to 1/4 (120fps) or 1/8 (240fps) of speed. The resolution is 800 x 450 or 1280 x 720 depends on models.

      TBH, the slow motion quality in Note 3 sucked big time! I was so disappointed that i never used it after that. With Note 5 it’s better now but S7 looks really good. I just wonder why there’s no 1080p by now or slow motion at 1000fps.

  • Johannes Werner

    Bro my s5 does the same

    • Hunter Miller

      But it’s not as good as this. The Nexus 6p and the iPhone seem to be the only phone who can record good slow motion video and now the s7 and s7 edge are just as good

      • Nymenon

        The Nexus 6P slow MO isn’t as good.

        • Hunter Miller

          It’s just as good as the iPhone can’t say the say the same for the Samsung galaxy s5,s6 and note 5

      • KRS

        No, it’s better

  • Johannes Werner

    And pretty boring for 5mins

      Welcome to AA!

      They did this the right way. They embedded the youtube video. You get all of the add revenue from the video and if people are interested they can click on the video and go to your channel. So it is “linked to” your site.

      Cute baby

  • Daggett Beaver

    When the video first started, I was thinking, “WOW! If that’s slo-mo, that kid must be swinging at 250 MPH!”

  • KeyserSoze

    This is awesome, I will use this to slomo record how easily the G5’s Friend chin will break off and permanently separate from its body at a drop-height of 2 feet.

    S7 “recording” 240fps, it does not “film” because the phone has a digital camera

    • Josh Adams

      The phone doesn’t “have” a digital camera, because that implies that the phone is sentient and capable of possession of an object. A digital camera “is present” in the phone.

      It’s a word choice. Use your time wasted by these types of comments doing something else.

        F*** off m8

  • Brad Fortin

    720p240? Good to hear Samsung’s catching up to late 2014. Maybe next year they can finish catching up to late 2014 with 1080p120.

    • Nymenon

      I think Samsung may be the first Android phone to achieve 240fps

      • Brad Fortin

        720p240, anyway. Some have managed 540p240 and 450p240 for a few years. I think it’s mostly a chipset limitation, too, not a sensor limitation.

    • Timothy Lim

      Yes, because lacking 720p 240fps totally makes a 2016 phone become a phone from late 2014.

    • Timothy Lim

      Yes, because the late inclusion of 720p 240 fps makes a 2016 phone equivalent to one from 2014.

  • Prain

    Can audio be captured at either of the slow-mo frame-rates? 240 or 120? Thanks! :)

  • seattle tech

    Would like min 1080p 240fps 4k 120fps.

  • Bob F

    Excellent! And thanks for going horizontal.

  • Rick_Deckard

    It looks darn good!!!!!

  • Noah Jones

    I know I might sound ignorant but why is it so hard for manufacturers to have slow motion video at 1080p?

  • yardie

    6p is still boss then

  • aaloo

    only 60fps at 1080p?

  • Weidry

    So funny haha !
