Clicking pictures is a hobby for some while passion for others. However, in order to capture some of the WOW pictures you need to know various technical aspects of your camera like shutter speed, ISO, aperture and other functions.

Knowing the differences between shutter speed and FPS is also important to make proper use of camera and below given are some of the difference between the two which you must be aware of.

shutter speed and fps

  • FPS (Frames per second) is the number of frames that the camera takes every second. Whereas, the shutter speed is the time that it takes for the camera for taking every frame. If you are in NTSC-format country and you choose to shoot with the 1/100 shutter speed, camera would shoot 29.97 FPS. Every frame would be shot in the 1/100th every second. The shutter will be open for the 1/100th for every second for shooting every frame. This will be done every 29.97 times for every second.
  • At the faster shutter speeds, which would something, be like 1/250 and 1/500, the camera would shoot 29.97 frames for every second and it opens shutter for 1/250th or 1/500th for every second and for every frame that it shoots. The faster shutter speeds are known to be good for the action shorts like the sports. You tend to get less motion blur at the faster shutter speeds.
  • In short, the frame rates would not change unless and until you would be willing to invest a lot for the specialty super-slow-mo cameras. Nevertheless, you will be able to get the smooth slow motion at the standard frame rates if in case you are making use of good editing software.

People often get confused between the terms of shutter speed and the FPS. The above points should give a clear picture on the differences pertaining to the same.

Before taking up photography as a hobby or a profession, it is essential to know some of these terms so that you can discuss the same with others when you describe about your photography.
