"Cameron, whose 2009 sci-fi blockbuster raised the bar for digital imagery and
put the 3-D craze on the fast track, said Thursday that "Avatar 2" would be shot
at 48 or 60 frames a second to reduce an effect called "strobing" that can blur moving images,
particularly those in 3-D. For more than 80 years, the norm has been 24 frames a second.
In a demonstration for theater owners at their CinemaCon convention,
Cameron played 3-D footage he recently shot at 24, 48 and 60 frames a second to
show the better quality of high-speed filming."
"... Cameron, who wants faster filming rates to become the standard for 2-D and 3-D movies."

Cameron aims for speed to enrich 'Avatar 2' images
There was the craze for getting the film look out of video/electronic cameras.
Going from the video/news/TV 50i/60i look into the framerate realm of film.
24/25/30p abilities were in and norm.
For 3-D i can understand as a technical concern and as explained a more pleasurable experience,
but how would we feel with more images per second while watching a 2-D theater movie?
Cameron plans to raise framerate for "Avatar 2"
