Default [Q] Slow motion video on the Nexus 5?

Is there a way to get slow motion video on the nexus 5?

Searched quite a while for a thread where this is addressed, to no avail. So is this something that's being worked on or might get worked on in the future? Or is the Nexus 5 not capable of slo-mo?

Thanks in advance!

@dec1153, well it should be able to. I have seen this feature work perfectly on older phones with lower megapixels.

And this is a very cool feature along with it being somewhat useful too sometimes. Sad that this isn't being actively worked on, as almost every other flagship device does this!

It's nothing to do with megapixels. It's frame rate

Correct, pixel count is irrelevant. I believe it all depends how good the image sensor is. High speed shooting requires more lights. If nexus 5 uses cheaper image sensor, then we are out of luck. For around $300 phone with great hardware specs had to go cheap on some parts..I believe sacrificing camera spec could be one of them.
