The issue for me, is that if the frame rates go too low, movement will appear choppy. I've already had minimum frame rates in the teens.
What I would like to know is if all smartphone cameras do this variable frame rate. Are there any smartphone cameras that can record at a fixed frame rate (ie 30fps), like a dedicated, more expensive camcorder? I've read that the LG G2 records at 30fps but I don't have that phone so I don't know.
