Helmet Video Camera Frames Per Second or FPS – What Does It Mean?
Here’s a quick overview to the latest helmet video camera-tech trend.
Technically: Standard movies are shot at 24 frames per second (24 fps). A higher frame rate will mean a smoother and more fluid picture because the camera will update quicker and you literally see more.
Practically: Standard Definition TN is filmed at 25 fps, some HD channels offer programmes at 50 fps. Some of the most technically advanced video cameras, such as the £100,000 Phantom video camera can record at 2,800 fps!
Financially: High Definition helmet video cameras such as the GoPro offer up to 60 fps, which is more than sufficient to capture high speed sporting activities.
At Dogcam Sport we would always recommend experimenting with the frame rate of your HD helmet video camera if you have the option within the settings. Dropping the video resolution from 1080P to 720P but with a higher frame can often produce better video. Increasing the frame rate will also reduce any ‘rolling shutter’ within the camera, please see our previous post on Rolling Shutter – How To Reduce ‘Wobble Vision’ for more information on this.
