Default GoPro Resolution Preference

I know this has been talked about here and there, but haven't found a dedicated thread to it. I just got a new GoPro Hero 2 and took it out for the first time a few days ago. I kept it as a helmet mount on 1080p-30 all day. A couple things I noticed: POV footage is boring, unless you're doing tree runs/theres good powder or you're doing gnarly shit. 1080p 30 seemed choppy to me, I just found out there was a firmware update and hopefully that will help, but I'm wondering if the frame rate is just too slow for fast-action shit? So I started playing around, and both 720-60 and 960-48 seemed a lot smoother to me, and for some reason the image seemed higher quality???

So i'm wondering what you guys use when you shoot. Also, a bigger vertical capture would be nice, 948 provides the best for this?

Take care,
Nate
