Let's say the average DSLR shoots at around 10MP (and that's probably a low estimate these days.) The number of pixels in a 10MP photo is around 3872 x 2592 (assuming a somewhat standard sensor.) Clearly much larger than your 1080 x 1920 video. "10MP video" would be in the 4k range. Which by the way is all the rage these days. :) There's also the fact that ...
A still frame from a modern camera is 15+ megapixels, and potentially going to have every pixel looked at with a critical eye. A frame of HD video is 2 megapixels, and not going to subjected to the same level of analysis at 100% crop; at this point, I think it's more a question of why you'd think they would have the same frame rate.
