    you still need that high fps for the editing, editing slow motion with 30 fps doesn't do miracles lol..

    I believe it's a hardware limitation. The CMOS captor of the OPO probably just can't follow such a speed (240 ips). The iPhone captor can. To film in 240 ips, the captor must capture more light, so it has to be either bigger or more sensitive. It also depends on how quickly the captor can clear the current picture to capture a new one without any ghosting.

    120FPS is nice, just wish the software was better for it on the OPO. Wish they'd take a leaf out of Sony's book and let you select where in the video it was slow and where it was normal speed. AND have sound. Other can do it with the same hardware (SoC) why can't they?!?!?

    Also, people asking why do people even want slow mo on a phone? This is why... Captured this at the weekend on my friends stag do when we went to Düsseldorf... Totally worth the slow mo I think! Still doesn't look like 720p to me though. Hope thats fixed in the next update!

    imagine at 240 fps..

    if it can take pics with a shutter speed of 1/1000th then it can film with a speed of 1/240th....

    There may be some tweaks but I suppose it will be not be as smooth as iphone as the restriction lies in the hardware itself.

    Correct me if I am missing something :)

    Except there isn't any shutter movement during video capture. Or you would hear it and it would become used so quickly.
    I was speaking about the CMOS captor limitations, not the speed at which the shutter can open and close itself.

    Gotta improve somehow, quick or not... It takes skills to get 'er done, slow mooo would come in handy.

    Once you grow up, you'll understand what I'm talking about. :D

    just wait..maybe another ONEPLUS phone got 480fps .. OPO is good enough with the price... i will support OPO just like other people who like samsung or apple..

    However, it would be possible to capture 240FPS withe the 1+ One! But you'd need to set you Resolution down to 360P or you could set your Quality to 50% @ 720P. And with the last setting you could get pretty decent recordings.

    Its a mix of hardware and software limitation. The hardware needs to support high fps also without overheating. There is also a need of a proper buffer that can hold all the data. On top of that the processor needs to be able to process it.

    Now the 240 on phone are mainly a fake 240. It's 120 doubled to 240 using phantom frames.

    If you look at high fps cameras like the phantom Miro and the flex 4k. They use hardware meant for high fps. High speed buffers and super high speed hard drives. I used the flex 4k for a couple commercials and the drives cost roughly 10k each.

    Let's even consider the new gopro hero 4. 4k at 60fps (rumored). That's a dedicated camera. A phone isn't built for high fps hardware wise. Maybe someone can tweak the software to get the 240fps just don't look to a phone for high fps.

    Where is the evidence 240 is fake? Cannot be also 120 fake doubling the 60fps???

    Who cares about slowmo its a smartphone if you want slowmo buy a camera designed for it

    I totally agree with you, that would be a great feature, and i think a software update could solve that, it just depends on if OP or CM or anyone will do it...

    I use my phone at work and when a machine fails and you can't see it. It would be handy, no extremely handy to have a slo-mo with higher frame rates even if it meant a lower resolution. I've found trouble many times by shooting video of a machine failing and then looking at it frame by frame but slo-mo brings a whole new tool to the table.

    A selection of high speed and lower resolution could solve the bandwidth but this may ultimately be a limitation of the Sony sensor.

    That would be nice, too! :)

    And I would also like 240fps :D
