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.

How to best use twixtor for extreme slow motion | Philip Bloom

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

RE:Vision Effects, Inc. : Products: Twixtor
Great post, thank you.

Ill get twixtor and play around with it. Id assume 480p is good enough for small window view etc, but if twixtor does the trick ill just use that.

So twixtor is a plug in that works with Final Cut Pro?
