Post GoPro 1080p vs. GoPro 960

Hey so i was checking on the forums, and it says a lot about Contour vs. GoPro but I've decided because of versatility i'm going with the GoPro. But my question is, What is the major quality differences between the two? I don't want to sacrifice any quality with the 960, but if there is no difference, then I might just go with the 960. Thanks everyone!

The biggest difference IMO is you can't do 60 f/s in 960 or 720, but that's only a big issue if you want to do slow mo vids without looking too choppy.

i'll show you a couple shots i've done with my 960, im completely stoked on it! the 720p is sick quality 960 is sick cuz its a big square frame that catches everything around you, only thing your missing is 720 at 60fps (which i'd be stoked on) and 1080 (i dont give a shit for scince 720 is sick quality and the files are already big enough). you do have a video mode with 60fps but the quality is half that of a 720 file, 480x640 i think

720p (watch in hd)

960p i screwed around with colour correction for the first time, first edit on sony vegas with high quality footage so tryin to figure out some stuff

the main difference other then quality is the 960 option is going to have a taller frame while the 720 is wider.

The 1080p also lets you plugin an lcd, which is nice for when taping a friend.

You want the 1080p for better framerates/resolution size which you can use to match HD cameras and have smoother slow mo.
