thanks for the response
960 is 1280 wide and 960 tall so you can end up cropping a 1280x720 frame out of it. It's only 30fps (or up to 48 on Hero2) but you don't have to worry about up/down framing at all. I definitely recommend it when you're starting filming at least so you don't scrap footage that would have otherwise been usable. I know whenever we mount the gopro on my friend's helmet, he'll look down way too much and with 720 framing he'll only show the ground.
