Don't be alarmed, but when you first launch VLC for iOS, there is nothing to watch or listen to, nor is there any way to explore video content. VLC is a player, not a browser, so you'll need to … Read more
When Apple first announced the iPhone 5S and its new slow-motion camera feature, the thought of being able to upload sol-mo videos across social networks was exciting.
Then the phone launched, users started messing with the new camera features, and quickly realized that uploading a slo-mo video directly from the iPhone to Instagram (along with other social networks) wasn't possible. Or rather, it was possible, but you would have to use some workarounds to make it happen.
But a few weeks ago, a young developer who is still in high school, contacted me about the pending release of an … Read more
Apple wasn't the first smartphone maker to include a slow-motion camera feature, nor will it be the last.
But with more than 9 million iPhones sold in its opening weekend, and most of those expected to be the 5S, there are going to be a lot of slow-motion videos floating around.
We've compiled some of the best early ones from the past few days below.

When Apple announced that the iPhone 5S was going to come with the ability to capture slow-motion video, I was excited. Slowing down films of my kids has always been something I enjoyed doing, but I had to use various third-party apps or import the clips into iMovie in order to accomplish it. Now, with the iPhone 5S I have a native option to capture, edit and share slo-mo videos. And if you're lucky enough to have found a 5S in stock somewhere, you have the ability to create slo-mo videos with you at all times. Check out these five fun clips … Read more
Similar to many modern cameras and Android smartphones, Apple's iPhone 5S can shoot crisp 120fps (frames per second) slow-motion video. As the iPhone 5S reached the masses this weekend, many examples of this keen slow-motion video feature popped up on the Internet. Don't miss these five clips showing 120fps video in action.… Read more
Odds are strong that Apple will debut an iPhone 5S in September or October, making this peak season for both rumors and educated guesses about the future device. This one, from 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, seems to fall squarely into the latter category and substantiates earlier speculation that an improved camera is in the works.
Gurman was tipped by a developer to some hidden references inside of the latest iOS 7 betas that indicate Apple is designing a new iPhone camera mode called "Mogul," which would allow for the capture of video at a superfast and precise rate … Read more
This video, shown in slow motion and taken with a Canon 5D Mark II, depicts a pendulum of fire, one of the featured installations at The Crucible's Fire Arts Festival last week in Oakland, Calif.
Life moves too quickly for us pathetic humans, with masses of fascinating activity happening too fast for our meagre brains to interpret. So thank heavens for high-speed cameras.
These marvelous inventions can capture thousands of frames per second, allowing a producer to slow down the footage so we can see exactly what happens when someone is punched in the face. One second of action can be played over several minutes, and without any apparent loss of playback smoothness--so we can see what it looks like when you throw tiny pies at a wasp. Now that's progress.
The following 20 … Read more
