60fps isn't slow motion at all until you deliberately slow down 60fps footage in order to get that effect. The video I posted before was 60fps slowed down to 24fps using video editing software, that's how he got the nice smooth slow motion effect.

4k is absurdly high resolution though. I wasn't aware any of the GoPro cameras could do it. I looked up the Hero 3 and that's 3996 × 2160 instead of 1280x720, thus why you only get 15fps. I can't see 15fps footage at 3996 × 2160 being very useful for anything, really. Especially for slow-motion shots, since that isn't actually slow-motion, it's just low frames per second so it appears slow, but won't look anywhere near as good as 60fps footage slowed down. There aren't even displays that can play 4k video available to the average consumer yet.

I'm sure seeing a lot of GoPro footage on TV now, more all the time.
I don't think the 4K is of any use to the consumer market (certainly not to me) but that edition (H3 Black) is also capable of 1080p @ 60fps and for really nice slo-mo it can do 720p @ 120fps! That and the better lens, etc. made me buy one. It's really a nice tool for the money.

Congrats to the OP on the 60D. Nice to see the enthusiasm, sounds like you are going to have a great time finding out what a good DSLR can do!

so answer me this. there is also a mode to record 1440p up to 48fps. should i always try and record at higher fps, even if im not desiring to slow it down later? i've been shooting my 1440 @ 30fps just bc i didn't know if it was going to be slowmo because it was faster than 30 but from what im understanding here, i don't have to slow the footage down if i dont want to and above 30fps does not necessarily mean slow mo. damn im going to have to start recording at 48 now! or even 60 in 1080! hrmmmm.

basically, is shooting above 30fps going to look strange being played back @ 30fps?

I personally wouldn't even record at 1440, because not many people have 2560x1440 monitors yet (although they are slowly coming down in price, Monoprice recently introduced a 1440p monitor for ~$400), and video sites such as Youtube only support up to 1080p. Since I was informed above that the camera does 1080p at 60fps, I'd probably shoot at that for normal use, and maybe use the 720p 120fps if I was planning on doing slow motion.

They'll probably be able to tell it was shot at above 30fps because of how smooth the motion is, if that's a good or bad thing for what you're shooting is up to you. I'm sure having smooth motion is beneficial to anything you're using a GoPro to shoot, though.

the free account lets you have up to 200 images (I think?), once you reach that it deletes the oldest one each time you upload a new one and the pro account you have unlimited amount and a relatively cheap yearly fee.

It doesn't delete anything. It simply only shows the last 200 images. If you go to a pro account, it will display all the previously hidden images.

Another nice free one is 500px (www.500px.com (external link)). I really love the layout of the portfolio and interface.

If your intended use is Youtube (which is limited to 1080p at present) you want to shoot and process at a resolution that matches so there is no rescaling done by them. In my experience Youtube's rescaling does fairly-significant harm to IQ and is to be avoided whenever possible.

Sit down with your 60D and review the Canon made tutorials at http://www.learn.usa.c​anon.com …s/eos_60d_tutor​ials.shtml (external link). They are quite good in learning the features/settings of the 60D.

If you are into cinematography then I definitely recommend using the M (manual) mode of the camera. It definitely gives you more satisfaction and control in the images you are taking. It takes some practice, but digital photos are cheap! Play around with it. :)

Hello Everyone,

I just got my Bnew 60D DSLR Kit with the standard lens of 18 x 55. I love taking pictures and this is the first time i own a DSLR. I'm excited! So, I searched for a Canon Forum hoping that i can learn from Pros. and experienced photographers like you guys in here aside from reading my manual.
