FPS stands for 'Frames Per Second'. A 60 FPS dashcam records at double the 'frame rate' compared to most other dashcams, which typically record at 30 FPS. This higher amount of frames per second is quite an advantage because these dashcams ultimately capture double the underlying video 'data' of situations occurring at higher-speeds. What this means is you're much more likely to be able to retrieve critical data (think license plate numbers) from your dashcam video after an accident. This means a greater chance of holding that speeding/wreckless driver accountable for their actions.
Example Benefits of 60 FPS Dashcams:
- Capturing clear footage of a quickly-moving license plate from a hit-and-run driver
- Examining the type of vehicle involved in an incident to identify a make/model more easily
- Scenery or Motorsports: Recording buttery-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.
