    I have the video set to 1080 at 60fps, but it's actually recording at 30fps.
    Wondering what I might be doing wrong.

    Please note the Vision's 1080i60 setting is Interlaced video (hence the "i"). If you're playing it back on a computer (progressive-scan monitor) then it's most likely being de-interlaced to 1080p30 anyway.

    As far as I know, the only real advantage to the 1080i60 setting is special-effects: specifically, smoother slow-motion when you reduce the playback speed in video-editing software. If you're not doing slow-motion, I wouldn't bother with it.

    720p/60 is available if you are specifically after 60fps...

    Ok, great.
    I figured it was something I just didn't understand.
    Thanks
