The most FPS my camera has is 60fps. And the resolution choices are 1080, 960, and 720.

1080p at 60 fps. Make sure you have a large enough and fast enough memory card for it though.

Oh yeah if you don't have a pretty good computer you might consider 30 fps

I run 1080, 60fps, superview when at the track. I may dial it back to the 720, 48 fps setting because 20 min sessions create huge files. Editing them on my computer is a PITA.

The SD card should be a class 10.

60 at 1080 is silly. It takes forever to load, edit, and upload anywhere. No real need for it

I prefer 720P at 60FPS. It's a good compromise of file size and quality.

I like 30fps, 1080p with max FOV

the slow mo is plenty good for me, and I like the HD video

However, if you are using it primarily for youtube, remember they don't do 1080, so you vids loose resolution there.

but to play the raw file on your PS3 connected to an HD TV I would use 1080p and 30fps.

I found 720 and 60fps to work best after downloading to my phone in high res from the GoPro app. 1080 and 960 don't give me the high res option so it doesn't come out as clear. For my iPhone 5c at least.

You may find you don't even need 60fps to get quality video too. I generally use 60FPS for the bike and 30fps for anything less than 30 mph.


Oh, also keep in mind that as soon as you upload to youtube, they turn your video quality into . I got to where I use the lowest setting if I know it's just going onto youtube then getting deleted.

I would use the lowest quality available at 60fps.

Editing can also turn into a real with 1080, even if you are walking away from the computer...unless you have a bad computer.

Like I said, I use 30fps on just about everything and he is correct, it is more for slow motion shots. I am thinking if you were doing like 160 plus it might make a difference, but 30fps is still pretty fast when you think about it. The human eye can only process so many FPS anyways.

I would still use the lowest quality if posting on youtube.

I vlog with a go pro hero 3+ black edition and I never really get over 80mph I find that my 4k at 60 shutters and shows a lot of camera movement so I normal run at 720 and 48 this gives more picture stability and allows my audio to capture easier I also run at 30fps at 720 if it's windy or I know I'm gunna drive like an and have a lot of body movement I don't have a lot of bike time when it comes to vlogging so my settings are rough at best how ever if you are just going to do in place shots 1080p at 48 works really well for me and I use this the most. I have no clue on any time frames for YouTube uploads as mine just go to a blog on a friends page for our friends across the states after they move to keep in contact. I think the gopro video editor has a YouTube upload tutorial on it though. I use the editor to edit my videos and it's pretty painless
