Disadvantages with filming 50fps? in Camera Operating Posted January 12, 2013 · Edited January 12, 2013 by Matt Silvan Thanks for your advice, Phil. I definitely have to try it out and test both extensively. My camera would only shoot 50fps at the cost of a lower resolution. Files sizes are approximately similar, though. The picture is darker due to the higher minimum shutter speed, but I'll be careful of any flicker issues as you said.
