Moment Pro Camera App - Setting Frame Rates for Video
Frame rate greatly impacts the style and viewing experience of a video. Different frame rates yield different viewing experiences, and choosing a frame rate often means choosing between things such as how realistic you want your video to look, or whether or not you plan to use techniques such as slow motion or motion blur effects.
For example, movies are usually displayed at 24fps, since this frame rate is similar to how we see the world, and creates a very cinematic look. Video that’s broadcast live or video with a lot of motion, such as a sporting event or video game recording, will often have a higher frame rate, as there’s a lot happening at once and a higher frame rate keeps the motion smooth and the details crisp. On the other hand, people who create animated GIFs will often sacrifice detail for a smaller file size and choose a low frame rate.
A frame rate is the number of pictures your camera takes per second, which then gets converted into a motion picture. It's also important to know the difference between shutter speed and frame rate. Shutter speed is measured by the length of the exposure for each given motion picture, and the frame rate is the measured by the number of motion pictures taken per second. So, a video shot in 24p is made up of 24 individual frames.
Here is my rundown for shooting in variable frame rates:
