Windows 10 Mobile is going to be released in a couple of days and millions of current Windows Phone users are going to make the jump to the new operating system. And Microsoft is slowly but steadily making ready for the new OS with some other minor improvements.

According to recent reports, it’s been brought to our attention that Microsoft has issued an update to the Windows 10 Mobile Camera app which adds the slow-motion video capture on a couple of smartphones.

The slow-motion video capture is truly a great feature, but what’s sad is that it’s coming only to the Lumia 930, Icon and 1520. At least that’s what we know at the moment to be the case. Rumor has it that the upcoming Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL will support it, as well, which would be another great reason to buy one of these new devices.

It’s already possible to try out the new feature by installing the latest preview build of Windows 10 Mobile. In the camera app, in video mode, you will see a turtle icon that will enable slow-motion capture of video shooting at 120fps at 720p. There is also a “super slow” option that allows to highlight a part of the video to be super slow.

It needs to be pointed out that the Slow Motion feature has been one of the most requested from Windows Insiders, and it’s nice to see that Microsoft listens to our demands. What do you think about this? Leave your comment below and let us know.
