Okay so I recorded some really cool slow motion shots. I can go into the edit screen and select the exact spot the slow motion should be. But when I go to send/post it the the video is completely in slow motion. Nothing in normal speed at all.
the camera app crashes on my 6p while doing slow motion video. I've seen a few mentions of this here and there on the web, with suggestions to factory reset / wipe cache, etc. I have tried this but no luck. I don't really see a definitive answer anywhere, but see quite a few complaints about it.
What happens is the camera app crashes when trying to take slow motion video, while zoomed in, either at 120 fps or 240 fps. I haven't seen anybody else mention this specifically while zoomed in, but that's what's happening to me. If I'm in the camera app and switch to slow mo video, then zoom in, move the phone around a bit, the app freezes and crashes with a "cannot connect to camera" error 100% of the time. I don't even have to start recording, the screen just starts to get jumpy, then eventually freezes completely. It's not a random thing, I can replicate the problem over and over.
Just got my phone and it is completely stock. When using the video camera and switching between slow-motion modes (normal, 120 FPS & 240 FPS) the camera app crashes and I get the error message "Can't connect to the camera".
Then the camera wont work, no matter the app I use, that uses the camera. After a reboot it works again though.
Sometimes it crashes the first time I've changed the mode to 240, sometimes after cycling through the modes a bit, but it always happen and it wont many cycles (1-3). I've recorded functional 240 FPS videos, so that part works.
I've tried starting the phone in safe mode and deleting cache partition, with the same result.
There are others with the same problem, but it doesn't seem to be a common error. Is it a software problem or hardware, and is RMA the only option?
I was playing around with slow motion video over the weekend and wanted to post this because it wasn't obvious how to do it in the camera app.
In video mode, tap the gear icon and change the FPS to 120. It is only available in certain aspect ratios (it works in 16:9 HD). Record your video and watch it in the stock Gallery app for slow mo. You can adjust the slow-mo speed while viewing. I couldn't get the slo-mo to work in Google Photos.
There may be other ways to do this but this is how made it work.
My video recording in stuck in slo-mo, don't know if I am missing something or what. Camera Mode is not set to Slo-mo. I can set it to that and than back to Auto but it still records in Slo-mo. What is going on and how I can turn it off?
I like to use this feature along with Coaches Eye app to analyze my golf swing. I should have probably researched this a bit better but at least I'm in Sprint's 14 day window of returns.Pick up an HTC One M8 which has SloMo or wait for the next thing?
When I'm at camera and I turn on slow motion when I start recording the quality looks abit off, not blurry though. I'm wondering if that's normal? when I'm taking pictures, etc it looks very good but when I'm at Slow motion quality is a bit off.
So I just got my phone and am having an issue. When on call pulling the phone away from my face doesn't turn screen on. That might be my glass screen protector. But hitting the power button doesn't wake it either and volume during call doesn't work. I can't hang up or anything until the call disconnects.
I'm having a really weird problem with my phone. The wifi connection is super slow on my Nexus6P, but on my macbook it is fine as it should be. I tested on two more phones, one iPhone and my OnePlus one, wifi works fine on both of them.
I tried restarting my phone and nothing, I did a factory reset on my phone and the same problem still happens.
When I did turned of my router for like 2 minutes and then turned it on again, the wifi connection on my nexus6p worked fine for some minutes and then got slower again.
Occasionally, when using the slow motion setting the video will record, play back in slow motion, but the fps will not be up to par - as in, it'll be set to 240 fps but will most definitely look choppier and not as smooth as I know it should be. A restart of the phone usually fixes this but there's no way to tell if it's not working until I record a video and play it back. Also, all the sample slo-mo videos online look so crisp and clear, while my videos tend to look pretty noisy, even with decent light.
I don't normally do a lot of videos from my phone due to the poor quality, but given that the 6P records in 4K I wanted to try it. I recorded my son's Christmas Musical. Once home I tried playing back via wifi to my TV. I got audio and nothing more. So I thought it was just a connection problem. I then tried on my computer.
I set the 6P on a tripod and used it as a camcorder to record an hour-long live performance at 1080p, only to find out after the performance that it stopped at 31:49, or 3.8GB. Is it a limit on the length of time or file size, or both? Is there a workaround? Quite disappointing that I can't use my 6P like a real camcorder.
Since buying the phone (couple weeks ago), I haven't been able to steam any videos on HD (720P and above) without the video buffering numerous times. I streamed movies from Google Play Movies and Netflix. I don't know if the resolution is going down to allow me to stream the videos, but I'm getting very frustrated. My LTE is full, never had a problem in my area with other phones. It's hardly better on Wi-Fi
