This is not correct. Video does not shoot continuously, it shoots discreetly. At 24 frames per second, each frame might, for example be 1/125 each. This would mean that you would have 1/125 of image capture time per frame followed by 4/125 of no capture time between frames. This is why in my previous post I was highlighting the ineffectiveness of this approach - @1/125 you are only capturing images 20% of the time.
