Choosing the Frame Rate

You should choose the frame rate accordingly to the function of the scene and light conditions you are shooting in.

Higher frame rates (like 60 or 120 fps) will have the effect of slowing down movement, making it feel heavier (as seen in slow motion) and have an overall documentary feel. On the other hand, lower frame rates (like 24 or 30 fps) will produce faster motion that can feel very light and gives an overall cinematic feel.

Also remember that shooting at higher frame rates will lower the camera’s sensitivity to light so it is recommended to use lower frame rates at night and in dark interiors.
