If you select 1x you will be recording in normal mode. Both the 2x and 3x options activate the fast camera at the corresponding speeds, from faster to slower. In contrast, the 0.3x and 0.5x mode activates the slow motion. You can easily combine several video clips at different speeds to create unique and singular videos that will amaze everyone in the community. To do this, press and hold the shutter button and select one of the available speeds on the screen.
