Q: Why to use only 16 frames per second (fps) !
A: This is because human eyes recognize as a "continuous movement" images moving at 16 frames per second. I discovered this playing with gp3, that already had a frame rate optimiser. Using a higher frame rate gives you a hit on how fast you see the things. For example using 48 fps you see three times (the same thing) which you would normally see. In real life your eyes wouldn't be able to see so many details of the movement you are doing. So I always use a 16-17 fps. It gives you a faster appearance (better frame rates) and still appears to your eyes as a continuous movement.
