Extending Life’s Simple Pleasures Beyond the Blink of an Eye

April 7, 2018 Gadgets No Comments Email Email

In an age where everything moves at lightning speed, it’s easy to miss some of life’s simplest pleasures. Whether you’re running to your next appointment, snapping another selfie or hurrying to get the kids off to school, it’s all about moving quickly and on to the next thing.

The Super Slow-mo video feature of the new Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ allows people to discover the beauty and joy within even life’s most basic tasks just by slowing things down a few notches.

“My dog drinking water out of a bowl, me jumping into my pool at home or pouring sugar into a coffee [are things I’m capturing with my Galaxy S9],” says social media content creator Sam Evans, who is based in Australia.

He’s also finding the length of the Super Slow-mo videos to be ideal for posting on his social channels.

“I love how shareable the Super Slow-mo function is. Turning 0.2 seconds into six seconds is the perfect amount of time for an Instagram story. [It allows] me to take my audience with me on my slow-motion moments each day!”

Sam was one of dozens of influencers who attended a launch event for the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ in Barcelona last month and was one of the first to try out the new slow-motion functionality. Whether it was a daring capture of a backflip mid-air or something as simple as recording snow falling, the results were stunning and showcased the funny, moving and often sweet-natured emotions we so often miss.

Niklas Larsen, a Danish YouTube and Instagram influencer, is finding the humor in the most basic activities by slowing them down with his Galaxy S9+.

The ability to capture intricate details is also important to landscape and nature photographer Mattias Nutt, who lives in Switzerland. The avid content creator utilizes both modes within the feature to get the exact result he’s looking for.

“With the Galaxy S9+ it’s possible to adjust the recording moment exactly. Also, the possibility to record about 20 sequences is a big advantage. The [ability to] switch between manual and auto function as slow-motion modes is a big plus,” says Mattias.
