Digital SLR Camera Basics

Frame Rate

The “frame rate” is the number of frames recorded per second (fps). The higher the frame rate, the smoother the resulting movie. Supported frame rates include 60, 50, 30, 25, and 24 fps; at 60 fps, 60 frames are recorded every second.
Note: Some cameras offer frame rates of 60, 30, and 24 fps when NTSC (the video standard in use in North America, the Caribbean, and the Philippines) is selected for Video mode in the setup menu and rates of 50, 25, and 24 when PAL (the video standard in use in much of the rest of the English-speaking world) is se-lected.

The movies shown in cinemas have a frame rate of 24 fps, which makes this setting a good choice for re-cording footage with something of the feel of a theatrical release.
