Hi,

There are 2 types of tv systems and 1 film which have different frame rates.

1. PAL (Phase Alternate Line) - Australia, UK, and other countries - 25 frames a second, but video camera record in fields so its actually 50 fields per second, fields are half frams so 2 fields make 1 full frame,

2. NTSC (forget what is stands for) - USA - 30 frames a second, or 60 fields a second.

3. Film - 24 frames per second. no fields, they are full frames. (some video cameras can record at 24 full frames, but not your one).
