This is not a paid advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy s7 smartphone, though if Samsung did paid me to get some nice shots of slow motion honey bees, I’m pretty sure I could get some good stuff. As it is, I’m just goofing around, testing out the video features of the camera. This particular shot that I posted on Twitter is my favourite so far…

…but some of the following footage isn’t too bad either. It’s a slow motion test, but it’s also a test of the touch screen focus feature on the smartphone, which is really nice. It allows me to change the focal point while I’m recording, just by tapping the screen. Not bad. The change in focus can be a bit abrupt in places, but rack focus moves are all the rage these days anyway.
The video is potentially more impressive played back in full screen mode with a resolution of at least 720p.
