Default Which Profile for Youtube only

One Question to the Forum:
I have the Aiptek Z700 (Europe), a great little Cam.
What is better for Videos on Youtube:
720p with 30 fps or 720p with 60 fps

I make Videos from normal Situations no Sport Videos or something like that. The Filesize between this two Profiles is hugh different.

Any Opinions are welcome.
Thanks.

Youtube only has a 30fps framerate anyway so pointless uploading 60fps unless you're going to archive your footage. For regular family footage you can get by with 30fps but seeing as flash memory is so cheap these days, you may want to shoot in 60fps most of the time as this gives you the option to convert later.

You can use the same rule of thumb with video and photo resolution ie shoot in the best mode available as you can always down convert. Same with framerate, it's easy to half 60fps to 30fps. Of course in lower light situations where there is not a lot of fast movement, the 30fps mode would be better.

I also tend to use [email protected] most of the time. To be honest 720p is sufficient resolution for most purposes anyway unless you have a very large flatscreen tv. I have seen the 720p footage on my friends Samsung 52 inch and it looks stunning for such an inexpensive camera.

Thank you for your full description. Very useful. I dont archive my Videos, uploading to Youtube is enough for my needs. And on my 16 GB SD Card i can save 4,5 hrs. of Video, which is enough too. :-)

Drop down to 30fps and you'll double that but then 4 hours is a lot of video anyway for a days shooting!
