    I always use 1080p 30 and use the MicroSD into my PC, always looks excellent.

    The playback is not fully rendered yet, download it on your I pad then watch it!

    The playback is more along the lines of 480-720p once you download it you will view it at 1080p but if you are wanting to see the quality at 2.7 k you will need a screen that is compatible for that! Like a 4K tv!

    Your computer has to change the video after it's taken, and if you have an editing program, it changes it again. Then you have to save it to the cloud if you want to send it to an individual, but you don't have to save it cloud if you want to post on youtube or facebook. Confusing? YES. But you'll get it. And don't even ask if you happen to save it to cloud in the wrong format, it screws up the video for all time. You can watch it, but it aint good.

    Ya, youre viewing compressed files sent to your mobile device. Pop the MicroSD card out of the camera, plug it into a USB adapter, copy to PC or play directly on a TV. Big difference.
