Thread: How is a camera's Frames per second defined?

  1. #1

    Default How is a camera's Frames per second defined?

    Hmmm, this is really a basic question which I (embarrassingly) didn't consider in the past.

    We always read camera specs given as 3 fps, 5 fps, 8 fps, etc etc. At which shutter speed do they define all these fps?

    Obviously, using a slow shutter speed eg, 1/2 second will never get us 8 fps even if the camera is reported to be able to do that.

    Thanks for any answer!

    It is just an indicator of the highest it can get, so long as your shutter speed and focus requirements are within the mathematical limits.

    It's simply the maximum possible rate at which the camera can achieve.

    definitely if you set your shutter at 1/2 or even 1", u will never get 8fps.

    I am amaze by 1D3 10fps(more action can be capture) compare to my E3 5fps(which I thot it already very fast)...

    basically for machine gun and sport shooter , the more fps the better...

    another words, more image to delete...
