As the other posters have mentioned, the Nikon is in auto mode. If I'm not mistaken the big P at the upper left corner of the screen stands for program mode which essentially means FULL AUTO. The ISO, aperture, and SS displayed are no longer in effect. The camera must have raised the ISO to 3200 or 6400, opened up the aperture as wide as possible, but sped up the shutter speed to a realistic 1/50. The camera has overidden the displayed settings without informing you. There's just no way that the Nikon can do 1/5 ss at 24p without smearing, that would be defying the laws of physics.
