Will they shoot it in 48 fps (frames per second) instead of the standard 24fps for enhanced clarity like Peter Jackson is using for "The Hobbit"? and James Cameron is planning on 48fps or 60fps for the next Avatar film.
Here is an excellent 5 minute video with Douglas Trumbull (who did 2001: A Space Odyssey Visual FX)

Video: Douglas Trumbull On Fast Frames Per Second

shows examples of 24,60,120 frames per second.

Now I see exactly why James Cameron may go 48 or 60fps. If this ends up the way to go I can see Trek producers going with state of the art shooting for future-proofing.
