During movie shooting, pressing the button at the moment when the “gaze” comes comes with a movie shooting function “dramatic slow” that can be switched to slow motion at 120 fps or 240 fps at that moment . The range to switch to slow can be selected from 3 before, before, behind, and behind pressing the button.
If you press the button after seeing it with eyes, you can catch the critical moment back to the most important moment. Dance, BMX, skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing etc. Make a dramatic moment that will end in a moment, such as deciding technique and jumping in extreme sports, to a super slow throw to finish it as a video directed to cool. Switching to slow motion during 1 movie shooting can be done any number of times. It can be operated easily with buttons on the main unit, a dedicated smartphone application, an optional remote controller or a liquid crystal controller.
