I have a standard and in 2.7k and 1080p the highest fps capable is 30fps. So which one will give the better recording? I realise 2.7k is a higher resolution but will 1080 be smoother? When it had the 60fps setting my 1080 looked much better so i used that. I am heading overseas to do some filming in and around a forest and i know in 2.7k i get some flickering so any help with settings would be great. Cheers

The difference in quality if seen by eye are minimal, and will mostly be only visible on big screens where higher resolution play a bigger role, I tried shooting at 2.7K once, but it was a struggle to edit and render them, the overall result wasn't satisfying enough to me, so I'm ok with 1080p, I use 48FPS on most occasion since it very smooth and takes less of space, use 60FPS fps for fast motion videos or in intention of using slo-mo, hope it helps.

48 and 60 have been removed from the standard with the new app so I'm limited to 30fps on 1080 as well so wondered if there was any reason to use 1080 over 2.7k

From video quality point of view, no.

But 2.7k takes more space and longer time to process and upload.  So depends on what you're doing , it might make sense to shoot in 1080P sometimes.

So it's likely I will get the same flickering on 1080 and 2.7k at faster movement speeds? So the only way to make sure I don't get that is to drop to 720 and a higher frame rate?

Possibly, but many players will not recognise the faster frame rate and regard it as being slow-mo. The best way to avoid flicker when moving the camera is to either avoid doing so or make the camera moves slower. If you look at moving footage, most times professionals do not use fast camera movements.

Thanks. I was just noticing it even when I thought I was panning quite slowly. Mainly with grass and tree canopies.
