    That's interesting! My SJ5000x has only HD resolution in the Slow Motion mode, no way to set it to VGA.
    But it's always possible to record video with the regular video mode at desired resolution, and slow it down in postprocessing.

    Edit: I was wrong - by changing the slowing rate, I can get even VGA mode ( at 8x slowdown). So use 2x or 4x slowdown options for HD resolution.

    Ok i choose example 4x and still i dont see possibilty to change resolution and movie now is 720 not VGA . maybe my sj5000x isnt original? Authorized key is ok and product from trusted ( i think) seller. Can i see your slow rec menu? Maybe something is different.

    This camera supports only single frame rate for 4K (24fps) and 2K (30fps) resolutions, so it wouldn't be possible to slow down videos at those resolutions in the camera.
    For FHD there are two supported frame rates (60fps and 30fps, or 50 and 25, depending on selected grid frequency), so it would be possible only 2x slowdown. But for unknown reason this option is not available.
    For HD resolution, there are 3 different frame rates supported: 120, 60 and 30 fps, enabling 4x or 2x slowdown. Both of those slowdown modes are available (by selecting slowing rate).
    The 8x slowdown mode is available for VGA mode only (recording at 240 fps, playback at 30 fps).

    Yes, it would be nice if the 2x slowdown mode was available for FHD. But I don't miss any options for the VGA mode, because of very low quality of this resolution.
