[CLOSED] Higher FPS at the cost of resolution? No.
« on: June 22, 2012, 07:25:27 PM »
I see that 35fps is about max for 1080p.  Is that a limitation of SD card, cpu speed, and/or buffer speed?

I've been using a Casio Exilim that allows 210fps at a very limited resolution (480x360) in its case, but I was wondering if something like that was possible on our cameras...

Basically, the 600D can do 60fps at 720p, could it do 120fps at 480p, assuming there was enough light to get an exposure?  Of course, I don't understand the inner workings of the camera video mode, but the relaxed resolution would ease any strain on the card, buffer, and cpu if that is the only issue.

I use the heck out of the high speed mode on this Casio for troubleshooting high speed machinery, it would be sweet if I could utilize my personal 600D instead.

Thanks, keep up the good work!
I'm using ML for photography with:
EOS 600D T3i - EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS USM (Kit)

In LiveView you can get around 39; for recording, anything above 35 results in clipped frames and weird artifacts.
