Slow-motion videos of skateboarding are all I want to film with my iPhone 6

Everything is better in slow-motion — except a FedEx delivery

Adam Shomsky filmed skateboarder Christopher Chann in slow-motion at Stoner Skate Plaza in Los Angeles. The tricks are beautifully shot, and do an exquisite job of showing how difficult skateboarding actually is. Even in slow-motion, the way Chann manipulates the board looks superhuman.

This is exactly the sort of footage I imagine myself shooting with the new 240 fps slow-motion option on the iPhone 6. Of course, I won't film skateboarders. I'll film cars or dogs or whatever else is convenient, then be embarrassed by my lack of filmmaking talent. And then I'll probably play Desert Golfing.
