  1. Great video. Thanks, I’m still using and IPhone 7. I’m just getting started.

  2. Hello. I shot some clips to 60 fps and then convert them to 24 fps and get good shots in slow motion, but some of them looks fine and some looks jittering. Why its that? thanks.

  3. Every time I search for video production tips in Youtube, I hope you have a video about it Sean, because I know your explanations are super thorough but to the point. (you usually show up in results btw!)

  4. I have the LG V35, it has 240fps, 720p, limited only by the available storage on your SD card. This cell phone has some amazing manual features that set it apart from all the other cell phone currently. Only thing is this, it’s auto modes are not considered top tier for a flagship grade phone. When in the Slo-Mo mode the camera has no manual adjustments, strictly auto.

  5. Is there an editing program that would work with high rate cameras that doesn’t require a subscription? I would prefer to buy software rather than subscribe.

  6. Thanks for the amazingly informational tutorial. Think media has definitely become my go-to resource as I work to develop my video skills. Thanks for all the great work!

  7. Hey Sean! How are you? Im writing you because I’ve seen some of your videos and I’m starting or at least intend to start with travel videos and I have so many doubts! I figured you could help me🙈
    I’m planning to upload my videos only to instagram, I think that’s important because of the resolution supported (but I dont quite understand it)

    I have different gadgets that offer me an enormous variety of options regarding the videos resolution and I dont know which should I pick in order to standarize the videos (I dont know if that is relevant) for the editing process and for the purpose of my videos (uploading them to IG).

    As you can see, Im quite lost, could you help me?

    So my equipment is:
    *iPhone X that can film in
    4K video recording at 24 fps, 30 fps, or 60 fps
    1080p HD video recording at 30 fps or 60 fps

    Im not asking for slow motion in particular, just for regular videos ☺️☺️

  8. Can slow motion video be done with a Nikon D7200? Also are there any free or cheap software that will allow me to change the frame rates in editing?

  9. Hi think media. If you watch the THIS IS ME music video youll see a very epic slow motion where the one person is moving normally and everyone else in slow motion. I was asking for a tutorial on how to do that.

  10. I shoot with the Sony a6500, I can shoot fully in or out of slow motion, I get lost in changing the frame rate while shooting. How do I change from normal speed into slo-mo during playback?

  11. So quick question. If i export a video after editing it. And it is suppose to play normal speed, but comes out in slow motion, any idea how to fix this??

  12. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this information. I’ve been trying to figure out this cinematic slow motion for so long and thank you so so much for this!! It’s going to help me out so much for future video projects!

  13. Hey mate, this is not a tutorial. You are just moving arrow on the screen. Tutorial is explaining what you do step by step. Big boooo here.

  14. I’ve been using slow motion on my channel but I just slow down the clip in premier elements. It’s usually grinding metal with sparks flying. Looks cool
    Can’t wait to try this way
    Thanks for the tips

  15. As usual great video. Funnily I used an Iphone SE to try its slow motion and surprisingly the results were amazing!! Any android phone for slow motion?

  16. Would this tutorial be ok to use if I am using a mobile phone since I saw your presets are for ‘Digital SLR’ and not "mobile and devices"

  17. why do you go into the menu to slow your footage from 120 to 29.97, doesn’t the right click change speed option do the same thing without actually changing the clip?

  18. I click your site to learn how to make slow motion video, well 5 introductions and still waiting for the tutorial

  19. since when does the 180 degree rule have anything to do with shutter speed?? the 180 degree rule is used when choosing where to shoot from, doesn’t it?

  20. Great content bro… Looks like you live in AZ… If so, we should connect. Would love to pick your brain.

  21. If shooting slomo, let’s say 60 fps, do I need an SD card that read/writes at higher speeds (for example I normally use 48 MB/S, would that work fine or is 90 MB/S recommended?
