I am new to video and I am just wondering about which settings I would be best to use on my DSLR if I were to start shooting some stock video? I notice my camera has the option of PAL with either 24 or 25 frames per second. Or NTSC with either 24 or 30 frames per second.

I understand that 24 frames per second would be best for a more cinematic looking effect, but if I am shooting stock video would I not want to aim for a higher frame rate of either 25 or 30 frames per second for the best quality?

Also, for stock footage is there a standard that is generally followed in terms of either being the PAL or NTSC systems?

I guess if I want to shoot at 30 frames per second my only choice would be to shoot NTSC.

Anyway, just wanting to set my camera to whatever is the industry standard for stock footage if I start shooting.

Thank you for any input you could offer please.

I shoot mostly at 30 fps and always at NTSC. For me 24fps gets choppy. Once I bump to 30 its much smoother.

Do end users prefer 30 fps or the NTSC 29.97 fps standard?

Like you said 29.97 is the standard.
I would say forget the 30p if you have the option and go for true broadcast framerate.It will also be much easier for someone to conform to 23.97 for television film,series, or documentary if needed.

Does it really matter? I mean the grand difference between the two is 0.1% Conform to one or the other in the timeline you have and get on with it.
