Hi,

What is the difference between Temporal resolution and spatial resolution?

If you shoot at a very high frame rate so that a motion is sampled many times per second, that's called a higher temporal resolution. So 60 fps would be higher than 24 fps, even 60i video has a higher temporal resolution than 24 fps film, which is why the motion is smoother-looking.

Spatial resolution, I guess, refers to the resolution allotted to details in the frame itself. So 35mm would have more spatial resolution than 16mm, etc.
