Question

FPS Settings in Movie Mode

In-store salesman could not explain why movie menu includes settings for HD at 15 FPS, but VGA at 120 FPS. Shouldn't the HD choices include the higher FPS for better quality? I am assuming that more frames per second = higher quality.

Generally film and video is shot at 24/25 and 30 fps dependant on where in the world you are, the reasons are complicated and have to do with TV and film formats.

At 15 frames per second you and increase the speed of video x2. so a video shot at 15fps works at 30fps and will generally give a comic effect. The old rule of thumb was that you could increase the speed of something by 10% and it not be particularly noticeable and was used in car chases for TV programs,

As NikonStaff2 says (he seems to know more than NikonStaff) When shooting at 120fps you can get a great slow motion effect. Also when shooting fast motion you get a smoother motion when shooting at fast frame rates 50 or 60fps.

answer 2
FPS is Frames Per Second, how many frames you are recording in each second of video.

At 15 FPS, you are recording fast motion movies, at 2x the speed. You can record up to 2 minutes at a time, and when played back, each 2 minutes of recorded video plays in 1 minute. The S6300 can record this mode in High Definition.

At 120 FPS you are recording slow motion, at 1/4 of the speed. You can record up to 10 seconds at a time, and playback for each 10 seconds will play for 40 seconds. This option only allows for VGA shooting.

Both of these options can be found under the HS Movie Options

Question

Extending the amount of time a video can be recorded

I just bought the S6300 (Red) camera the other day. I have tried recording video and learning all the features this camera has. I have a SanDisk 32GB card but for some reason I can only take video in increments of 29minutes regardless of how much space is left. Perhaps I have a setting wrong. Is there a way to extending the time?

Question

How long is the delay from the time one presses the shutter release button until the photo is actually taken?

I have a CoolPix S4 and the delay from the time I press the shutter release until the camera snaps the photo seems to be over a second. In order to take a decent photo, I must hold the camera still for a few seconds after I press the shutter release or the photo will be blurred. Is the delay for this new Nikon the same as with the older S4?

Most of the time shooting delay is caused by focusing. Press the button half way down (and hold it in) and let the camera pre-focus; when the subject is perfect press the button the rest of the way to shoot. With a bit of practice it is easy to get the perfect photo.

Question

Which SD card for HD video

The various SD cards (SD, SDHC, SDXC) come in different sizes and speeds depending on the class of the cards. What is needed to ensure that the storage media is not a limiting factor when using this camera for the more data intensive operations? What is the maximum data transfer rate of the camera? How large are the files that are created when shooting HD video?
Long story short, for satisfactory performance do I need a 2 TB class 10, SDXC card or a 2 GB class 1 SD card? Or something in between?
