What is Frame Rate and Why Does It Matter?

Frame Rate, or Frames Per Second (FPS), refers to the number of frames that make up each second of a video image.  The more frames per second the smoother the motion in an image will appear.  

When capturing a static image with a stationary camera a slower FPS isn't that noticeable.  When the subject or camera are moving a slower FPS will result in a choppier image.  As the FPS increases, that choppiness lessens and the image changes will appear much smoother.
