'Marvel's Spider-Man' Is A Gorgeous Visual Showcase On The PS4 Pro There are occasional dips and frame-time spikes but they're shallow and infrequent. No doubt 60 fps would have been preferred for a game with Spider-Man's emphasis on street-swinging traversal and acrobatic combat, but an almost-stable 30 fps is a good  [...]

Here's the One iPhone XS Feature That Justifies an Upgrade Our eyes — with the help of some powerful post-optics processing by a specialized neural engine called the brain — are remarkably good at seeing items in dark shadow and bright sunlight. Cameras are terrible at it. Shoot a scene with a lot of [...]

Human Eye 30 Frames Per Second

Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second. The result is an apparent 30-times speed increase. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion.
Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, e.g. the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. Time-lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be confused with stop motion animation.
Some classic...

6 Frame Rate Facts You Didn't Know

Gamers will vociferously defend the superiority of 60 frames per second over 30. Moviegoers will lament the loss of that cinematic feel when watching The Hobbit at 48 FPS rather than the traditional 24.With frame rate issues once again in the headlines, I thought this an opportune time to revisit the great frame rate debate in video games and cinema. But we'll take a different angle - rather than try to convince you that something is better or worse, here are six facts about frame rates that...

Why Frame Rate Matters

GIF We all know the motion picture is a lie. That movement on screen? It's just a bunch of still images. Still images that seem more like believable, realistic, lifelike motion the faster they flicker along. Faster is better, and that 48 frame-per-second version of The Hobbitwas just the beginning.What is frame rate anyway? If you understand how film projectors work, you'll know that the individual images that make up a film strip are run through a projector assembly and flash consecutively...

This frame makes everything inside it appear to dance in slow motion

Jeff LiebermanTake a close look at that framed feather. It's fancy on its own, but when you push a button on the frame, it starts moving — dancing, even — in slow motion. The device, called Slow Dance, is a free-floating frame with clips that allow you to attach any lightweight object inside. Anything you put in appears to suddenly move very slowly.It looks like magic, but the effect is actually an illusion caused, in simple terms, by strobe lighting.If...
