FPS stands for 'frames per second'. A 60 FPS dashcam records at twice as many frames per second than the standard dashcam, which typically records at 30 FPS. This is quite an advantage because it captures much smoother footage of situations occuring at higher-speeds. For example:

  • Capturing footage of a moving license plate
  • Examining the type of vehicle involved in an incident
  • Recording smooth, high-quality footage of a racing or drifting event

If you would like to make sure to capture the footage you need in a high-speed situation, a 60 FPS dashcam might be for you.
