Is the quality the same as taking a normal video at 30 FPS ?

1 Answer 1


According to this lengthy review the recording is at 720p.

The specific recording details are:

  • H.264 codec
  • 1280 x 720 resolution
  • Millions of colours
  • AAC, Mono Audio @ 44.100 kHz
  • 120.15 FPS
  • 29.72 mbits/s

This all matches the recording quality of a 'regular' iPhone video @ 30FPS, apart from the data rate which will vary from recording to recording.

Note that the iPhone can record 30 fps @ 1080p, according to the apple tech specs which means that the higher frame rate is at a lower resolution.

  • I just made an edit there @grgarside, hopefully the answer is clearer now. 120fps recording only at 720p.
