How Many Frames Per Second Do You Need?

As my first day of blogging comes to a close, I’d like to leave you with one last nugget of Science Day tastiness. Ever since the dawn of time, man has been working tirelessly to increase the frame per second that could be captured by a camera. Actually, that’s not true at all. Nevertheless, intrepid engineers haven’t stopped trying to increase the frame rate to capture those brief moments in time that give us everything from “peak action” in sports to the most interesting scientific applications. So I ask you, how many frames per second do you need?
