Hey all, wondering what mode/resolution you use for recording video.

I can't decide if I like 60 fps or UHD better?

Unless it's going to be watched on a huge screen, you won't see any difference in resolution. You will see a difference in 60fps vs. 30fps, no matter what size you watch it at. (Most people look at the wrong thing what it comes to the camera in a phone. At the moment, UHD is mostly a sales gimmick. On a 35" screen, unless you're sitting a few inches from it [which means all you can see are details, not the whole picture], there's no difference. When you post it on line, even if you choose to watch it in HD, you're not going to see any difference between 1080i and 4k in a small box on a Youtube page. About all it's going to do is give you buffering on a slower path.)

60fps no question. Also I believe UHD limits your recordings to 5 or so minutes. Not sure the exact time but there is a time limit. Also you cannot take pictures during video in UHD mode.
