iPhone 5s and its 120fps Video Capabilities Impressive or a Gimmick?
The new iPhone 5s sure has left a resounding first impression on consumers since its launch date on September 20th. Now, with the smartphone favorite out of stock and not available for shipping until October people are starting to release photos and video taken with the iPhone 5s. One major upgrade is the new sensor on the iSight camera and its ability to take video clips at 120 frames per second in 720p. Below are the first few glimpses of Apple’s new achievement in smartphone technology.
Someone took their new iPhone to the Singapore F1 Night Race and tried out the new camera.

Wesley Arnold a professional videographer who specializes in electronic dance music after-movies shot this on a friend’s iPhone during a Life in Color event in Charleston, SC a few days ago.
While I would say that it doesn’t look like Apple is about to take over the videography world with this new technology by any means, it is a pretty nifty feature to have even if Android has had slow motion playback apps for over a year now. I believe it’s a step in the right direction for smartphone users who may want to put a creative spin on their personal recordings.
