On YouTube/Vimeo does 720 60 fps always look better than 720 30 fps?

I make grips for waterproof (WP) cams that attach to kitesurfing kites, boards, etc.. There are $300 WP cams (GoPro, Contour, etc) and now a new Kodak WP cam for $100. The more expensive will shoot either frame rate, but the new Kodak is limited to 30 fps. I only make hard goods, so do not know much about post video.

I think I understand the basic concept of 30 vs. 60 .. but maybe video on these hosts is like running mountain spring water thru a municipal water treatment plant, or..? I'd appreciate a clarification.

Thanks. Jim wetstuff.com

By the time you see it on a site like vimeo or youtube, the difference isn't really noticeable and actually trying to fit a higher frame rate into a limited bandwidth is likely to actually reduce the picture quality in other ways.

OTOH one benefit of shooting at 60fps instead of 30fps is the ability to make much better slow motion clips when you're editing the video, so that's a big plus for the action sports guys.

Thank you Andrew. That was the conclusion I was slowly coming to... "Better for SLoMo ... as would 100+ fps, etc..." ... when I (and a bunch of sport-types like me) would no more know how to do proper slow motion than split an atom*. Thanks again.

Jim

I guess I could strangle the frame rate in iMovie export preferences when I exported to YouTube.
