You can take pics at set increments and you can change the increment lengths. But the mp is about as good as low quality cell phone. The lower the light the more grainy it gets.

60 frames isn't enough for slow mo. It's gets jagged and looks like it's skipping. The 120 is ok but 480p works like the picture quality. The lower the light the more grainy it is. You'd have to use it in bright conditions only.

This is where the gopro exceeds contour -240f at 720p and a 12mp cam.

For the 60fps rate you could use a program like Twixtor. It essentially fills the gaps in frame rate. Here's a good video sample of 60fps using twixtor.

You can find it's compatible with most popular editing programs.
