Hello,
I often read need to avoid interlaced modes.
On the hd1010, this should correspond to Full-HD (1920 * 1280 60 fields / s, I do not understand the difference between field and frame ?).

But Full-SHQ mode is at 30 frames / s and HD-HR (1280 * 720) at 60 frames / s.
Which is best?

Regards.

The "fields" modes are interlaced. The "frame" modes are progressive. 60 frames per second means you have 60 full images for every second. A field is one of the two half-frames in interlaced video, so 60 fields per second gives you 60 half frames, which has less resolution then 60 frames.

Just choose the resolution you need for your final product. I use 720p60 a lot for putting video's online.

Fields or interlaced gives you half a frame per pass as in 60 fields/sec =30frames/sec

Progressive gives you a full frame per pass, interlaced gives you half a frame per pass.

Software finds it harder to handle interlaced video as against progressive.

Regarding which is best 720 60 frames/sec gives you a smoother video when there is a lot of movement in the video. 1080 30 frames/sec gives you better quality if you show the video on a 50" plasma.

At the moment the web only shows at 720 but I generally shoot at 1080 30 frames/sec for the day that I get my 50"plasma. :-)

At hdshare.tv you can upload 1080p60 movies. It displays them in a lower resolution though, but that might change in the future.

Rawit thanks for the link to hdshare.tv, I will try them out. I can upload the full HD 1080 videos to Youtube and Vimeo but the downsize them to 720p

Hi Rawit and relate2,
thank you for your explanations, it is now clear.
I am going to the U.S.A. in a month (southern Utah and northern Arizona).
I'm going to shoot in Full-SHQ (30fps), better than HD-HR (60 fps) because it is mainly for landscapes.

Best regards.

Those are correct settings. 1080 on this camera is more for like a scenery. the 720p with high framerate should be used for fast motion, parties, etc.
