DSLR Video Tips: frame rates explained

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.

    DSLR shooting is and has always been a joke. I understand why one would want to as far as sensor size, etc, but the Canon C100 makes it possible to throw your DSLR in the trash and no longer have to worry about limited record times, audio, etc.
