It means that the video will last 10 seconds. 30 frames/sec is the quality of the video. It is the number of individual pictures take per second. Example: 10 frames/sec produces a jerky video but is sometimes used for security monitoring. On some cameras you can reduce the frames/sec to get a longer running time.
Page 17 of the manual says the black box in the left top corner is the recording mode icon. In this icon you can see what menu you have chosen in the recording mode. In the left bottom of the display is the icon for the drive mode. It tell you if you are taking single pictures continues mode or are taking 5 frames per second (max 30 frames) or taking 3 pictures and compining the three.
The 4 frames per second shooting speed really only applies when you're shooting on manual focus. If you're not shooting a well lit scene or using an off-brand lens your camera will take a bit to auto-focus on your subject. Also if you're using the on-board flash, your camera will take a few seconds to recharge and fire again for the next picture.
If you're using the flash, the flash isn't going to charge that fast.
If your shutter speed is slower than a third of a second, you're obviously not going to get three frames per second.
If the camera is set on AF-C and the subject is moving, the camera may be having trouble tracking it.
If you're shooting RAW and have a slow memory card, the buffer will fill up quickly and slow you down. Try it with JPEG and see if it makes any difference.
If you have the exposure delay mode (custom setting #31) turn on, the camera will wait about 0.4 seconds before shooting, and this applies even in continuous mode.
Check all of the above. Set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Turn off the autofocus. Set the image quality to JPEG Basic. Set the camera to Continuous 3 fps. Now, press and hold down the shutter release button for five seconds. Does the camera take about fifteen pictures?
If you've checked all of these and it still won't do it, post an additional comment here and we can go from there.
By frame size and frame rate I think. The F828 (in highest quality mode) takes 30 frames per second (fps) at 640x480 pixels. In the US televisions display video at 30 FPS (actually it is 60 fps but only half the frame gets displayed at a time so it nets out to 30.)
I'm not swure what dedicated camcorders do internally but I've run my F828 videos on my TV (27" non-HDTV) and they look great. I've got no interest in buying a dedicated camcorder. Things might be different if I had an HDTV.
HD mode images may appear to move somewhat stiffly compared with SD mode or DV mode images. This is because they are shot at a rate of 30 frames per second compared with the 60 frames per second for the SD or DV mode images. The movie is shot at 24 frames per second, and looks good. So HD mode can have the same feel as a movie material. For smooth movement during video clips, we recommend you minimize rapid-panning or avoid shooting fast-moving subjects. Should you wish to record more natural motion in the picture, we recommend setting a slower shutter speed, or changing the recording mode to SD or DV.
