The new framerate will need new filming techniques and styles to take advantage of the technology. Just like 3d required a different filming style in transformers 3.

It's all a precursor to 4K. Mark my words...Precious!
There are already 4k displays on the horizon, along with glasses free 3-D.
48/fps films will set a new "standard" for how great home video can look (once you upgrade your player, cables, screen, and software of course ) will be what is placed in every piece of marketing literature that will come out.
The adoption of blu-ray didn't exactly go as planned, and the adoption of 3-D was even less successful.
The industry must keep us thinking that every bit of gear we own is antiquated, so they can keep reaping the monetary benefits.
I am sure I will be intrigued by the next major home video technology, but the rate new HT tech keeps getting shoved out is now at ridiculous levels. It sickens me! And It's all due to manufacturers needing more cash every quarter.
all of this stuff just makes everything look fake as hell. Nothing looks that smooth even in real life when panning. Dont believe me? turn your head from side to side and see if it looks as smooth as these new fake looking tvs..... it doesnt.....Or soap opera effect some call it. I guess if you like yout movies looking fake and like cartoons then is is for you.
