Logically speaking, if a clip has fewer images per second, it should take less disk space, right? If so, filming the same sequence at 24p should generate a file that is 20% smaller than the same shot at 30p.

And, fortunately for us, that is how it works!

What about 60p?

60p is a bit different in many cameras depending on whether it is recorded at 1080p or 720p (which is about half the data used in a 1080p clip) which is why clips shot at 60p can last approximately as long as those shot at 30p.
