Hi everyone!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Struggling to get my head about Nyquist's Frequency.. Have I got this right?

The Nyquist Frequency is 1/2 of the sampling rate of a discrete signal, and is the highest frequency that will allow a signal to be fully reconstructed without aliasing, at a given sampling rate. The standard frame-rate for a certain video camera is 30 frames per second. Therefore the camera is sampling at 30Hz. This means that the Nyquist Frequency is 15 Hz. Any vibrations applied to the camera about 15Hz will therefore not be visible in the footage.

Or is that completely wrong? Is it 60Hz rather than 15Hz?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

JJ.
