In low-light situations you should use 30fps or 24fps.
60p is great for sports and motion but should be used in outdoor situations, on bright sunny days.
I believe this one sounds the closest to being correct.
from around 30fps to 60, there's very little difference depending on motion speed. Mostly, 30 fps will suffice. Jerkiness will be much more noticeable at lower speeds.
(OLD THREAD WARNING!!!!)
of course, some might not even care about this thread any-longer.
60 fps is just smoother, but depending on the amount of motion, it might not even be apparent. Frankly, the reason I want something with High Res, and High fps, is so that I can use capture frames, almost like a few photos.
1920x1080 is sometimes all the higher you need.
Bumping an old thread, I just hope no one will mind.
If capturing swimming and diving and such, you may just wanna use the 60 fps.
The only place under 30 fps you will really start noticing much with normal recording and such, is around or under 20 fps.
My Intel Web Cam I use to have was a large exception though. I believe it captured internally at 30 fps, and then transferred down to 15. It only ever did at beast, 15 fps at VCD. But it done so like most cameras do 30.
Again, I don't even know if you care anymore, as this is like years old.
