…We already talked to you about one limitation,…and that is the actual frame rate available.…Remember, as you change frame sizes, the rates available are going to vary.…So these two are going to have to go hand in hand.…If I want to get the highest frame rate, 120 frames…per second, I'll have to drop down to a 720p frame size.…But that's okay.…Remember, most of you are going to be editing at 720 or 1080,…so it's not a big deal to blow 720 up a little bit.…What are some of the other limitations?…Well, you need fast cards.…Remember the GoPros take the micro sd type card, and you may…have to buy a higher quality card than you've been shooting with.…
The higher frame rates need the really fast memory cards…in order to transfer the frames and not drop any.…And when you're shooting that high frame rate…footage, you're going to chew through batteries a bit quicker.…So make sure you've got plenty of power to pull this off.…
