Hi All,
I usually record in 1080p Superview 60FPS, but was thinking of experimenting with 2.7k 16:9 60FPS instead to see if the image is clearer, sharper and better quality.
anyone else had experience with this? what are your thoughts?

I like Superview but have found it sometimes recording the top of my jacket if I look down and I'm not keen on that.

I say always try to record as high as possible and fix it later in post if you need to.

Remember superview only adds to the height. The width is the same as the wide setting, it just stretches it to make it appear wider. That said I kinda like super view as well.

I use Superview, and also record and post in 2.7k 60fps. If I know I am going to be recording a lot of footage I'll record in 1080 mainly to save space on the card, but it also prolongs the battery life too as 2.7k eats the batteries.

If you don't have the option for Superview at 2.7k 60fps then try it and see if you like how it comes out. YouTube gives you a far better data rate if you upload in 2.7k so will really help with the quality your viewers see.

Good to know thanks!
I will try some tests with 2.7k 60fps, unfortunately i cant get superview at 60fps on my camera though.

Using my Drift Ghost S I record at 1080p 60fps. Personally I always end watching videos at 1080 as thats what both my phone a pc defaults too

It's best to record and upload at the highest settings possible. Youtube will compress it a bit, but the better the source quality, the better the output will be.

I think that 2.7k or 4k is overkill for most of us and is a bandwidth hog. For sure it lags the editing process.
