The faster the frame rate, the better the slow motion.
Because you are capturing at 60 frames per second, you need better (stronger / more) light because the shutter is open for half the amount of time if you were shooting @ 30 fps.
30fps generally gives you a clearer/sharper image and it has less “noise”
If you shoot mixed frame rates, shoot in common denominators.
ie 30fps, 60 fps, 120 fps. You will save yourself a lot of heart ache if you do, as some NLE video editing suites cannot handle mixed frame rates – ie 24 fps, 25 fps 60 fps – or variable frame rates in the same project.
