    Basically a CCD camera will capture images in excess of 25 frames per second and keep sending the frames to the output for either a monitor or any other media to capture it. Rest everything is like a normal camera clicking 25 or 29 times a second. All the frames are played back at greater than or equal to 25 frames a second to give the impression of a movie running.

    The speed can then be varied to have LP recording where 10 frames are captured per second giving a slighty slower playback but almost all important frames are captured.
