50p and 60p

Hi,

What's the difference between 50p and 60p. Some newer camcorders seem to be able to record in 60p and I just wanted to know if it's a feature worth considering. Also, I thought that TV and films used 25 (UK) or 30 (US) frames so aren't 50 or 60 frames far too much than we need?

Thanks,

Sachin

I wouldn't worry about it...
Although more fps in theory means yo get smoother video especially with movt, in practice it is only one part of how the camera captures movt smoothly
Film " look" is actually " slowed down to 24p
