RECORDING RESOLUTION VS RENDER RESOLUTION

Just wondering what your guys experience is with the best recording to render conversions with GoPro.  Currently I've been recording with 2.7k 60fps and rendering to 1080p 30fps.  

 

Not sure if there's really any difference as I used to record in all 1080 and just render to 1080.  

 

I know some record at 4k and render to 2.7k for Youtube.  Just wondering what patterns if any you guys use to get the best possible video and quality in your videos.  Below is an example of one that I recorded in 2.7k and rendered to 1080p30.  

 

Please advise on any patterns that you guys use to get the best possible results.  And I am editing on Premiere Pro, so I know the importance of post, color grading etc.  Still working hard to learn that aspect of the game as well.

Re: RECORDING RESOLUTION VS RENDER RESOLUTION

the option to slow dow, zoom in and pann and more in 2k7 and keep the HD1080P  without any quality loss,

Re: RECORDING RESOLUTION VS RENDER RESOLUTION

Thanks man. Any thoughts on filming in 4k and rendering to 2.7 k for youtube? Seems like it would be a similar conversion ratio but no real experience with that. Any guys here doing that?
