Many chinon's opted for 18 frame versus 24 frames. However, once the zoom lens on a camera becomes more than 4-1, the cameras usually began to offer 24 FPS as well. Your camera is a 6-1 xoom. I'm surprised there is no dial on the camera that says what the frame rate actually is.

As a basic, general rule, you can rate the shutter at around 1/48th to 1/60th of a second.
