Many DSLRs go up to 60 frames per second which creates at least a 50% slower video if your project is either 24 or 30 frames per second.

Remember that if you change your frame rate to 60 frames per second you also need to increase the speed of your shutter to 1/125th of a second which will probably lower your exposure, so plan for that. Beware also that in order crank up the frame rate to 60 frames per second, many of these DSLRs force you to lower the resolution. This will create a mismatch between the other footage that you've shot. So you will then have...
