GoPro 1080P at 30FPS or 720P at 60FPS for paintball?

Next weekend I am going to by using my GoPro Hero for the first time for Paint Ball. Before this I have only used it for Autocross and Road Course events that I run my WRX at.

Because of the speed I have shot 720P at 60FPS. I am not sure what is better for paint ball. I am thinking shooting at 60FPS would be better because if I catch something good I can slow it down.

What settings do you use with your GoPro?

Definitely want 60fps.

The more frames the better...just like if you were playing a First Person Shooter on FPS.

The human eye cannot distinguish fps faster than about 30 to 35 fps on a digital monitor. But like you and the other guy said, using software like Twixtor to slow and SUPER slow your footage, you need to have something that shoots at least 60.

The real good digital film recorders shoot at like 200.
