According to a new report by 9to5 Mac, Apple will be introducing a new camera feature in iPhone 5S currently code name “Mogul” mode. This will allow the iPhone to record video at a rate of 120 frames-per-second (FPS).
“Besides a dual-LED flash setup and perhaps a 13MP Sony-designed sensor, we have discovered that Apple is designing a new iPhone camera feature called “Mogul” mode,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5mac. “A mogul is defined as “a powerful person in a media industry,” making the word a perfect codename (or even a marketing name) for a new iPhone camera feature. The discovery, shared with us by Hamza Sood, comes by way of hidden references inside of the latest iOS 7 betas.”
“According to our analysis and testing of the code, “Mogul” is a feature in development that allows the iPhone to capture video at an exceptionally fast and precise rate,” Gurman explains. “Specifically, our testing indicates that the feature can allow the iPhone to record video at a rate of 120 frames-per-second (FPS). The resolution at which this 120FPS video could be recorded at, however, is currently unclear.”
