Cult of Mac reader Rishi Kaneria e-mailed to tell us about his amazing slow-motion video, shot on – you guessed it – the iPhone 5S, at 120fps. Not bad, huh?
This, you would do well to remember, is shot on a cellphone camera. It’s not going to be replacing the Phantom anytime soon, and there are some odd artifacts in the footage (some motion blur and possibly some rolling shutter effects), but for a phone this footage is frankly stunning.
Content-wise, while it’s interesting to see the water sloshing around in the glass and all that, it’s the shots of the people that I like the most. There’s something about seeing somebody’s expressions slowed down to a quarter of their normal speed that is utterly fascinating. Then again, I could stare at Richard Avedon’s simple B&W portraits all day long, so maybe it’s just me.
Anyhow. My old iPhone 5 is starting to look lamer and lamer by the day.
