What are frame rates?
Your digital camera features a whole range of frame rates and resolutions, but which one should you choose for the best results?
Select the highest resolution in order to capture the very best picture quality (1080p, ideally), then 25fps, which is the ‘PAL’ broadcasting standard in the UK.
Depending on the model, your camera may feature a 24fps option, which is a cinema standard that’s designed to give a more filmic look. Faster frame rates (such as 50fps) should be used if you want to slow it down for smoother results.
