Which cameras shoot 4K videos at 60fps?

We have gone through the benefits of shooting in 4K in this article. Let’s have a look at the cameras that actually shoot 4K videos.

Cameras shooting 4K videos at 60fps

Filming at 60fps allows you to slow down the images to half their speed to achieve a slow-motion effect. If you try the same thing with images shot at 30fps and slow them down to half their speed, then you have to stretch 29.7 frames over 2 seconds, essentially 15fps.
