Another little trick is to download SloPro (it's free) and use it's editing features to edit the slow parts and then it saves to your camera roll for download without loss to HD video (although its only 720p at the moment). From what I can tell, it recognizes the 120fps of the video and lets to edit it very similarly to the camera app way of editing. For best results, I've found using the "Optical Flow" rendering method yields the best results. It even lets you choose the slow motion amount from 50% to %25.

Thanks for the post, I was thinking there must be a way to download video with this new feature but couldn't find any documentation that says you can't.

Currently, Dropbox can only save the original 120fps file, not the exported one.

Another option is to edit with Givit (free). You can pick any part of your video (including multiple parts) and play back at normal speed, 1/4 speed or 1/2 speed. You can even work with multiple clips at a time. When you save your video, all the speed effects will "stick" and then you can safely upload it to Instagram, YouTube or any of the other services.

(Full disclosure: I work for Givit)

Thanks for the heads up with Givit. It did the trick simply, easily and cheaply.

Hey guys!

Another trick would be to compress the video through another third party app. Download 'Compress' from the app store and open your slow mo video in the app and export your file as:

1. 720P Quality
2. VGA Quality
3. Low Quality (why?)

The file is saved in your Camera Roll for you to use.

There's a free app called TruSloMo that lets you post slo-mo videos to Instagram without resorting to any AirDrop / email tricks. It also doesn't lose any video quality in the process.

Another option if you have a mac with Lion or later:

-iMessage the video to yourself
-Open your Messages app on your mac
-Save the video to your computer
-Re-send it to your phone via the Messages app

Best I can tell, it loses a tiny bit of quality from transferring back and forth, but not nearly as bad as the compression that happens when you email it.
