I will be going on vacation shortly and intend to take mostly photos. But since the D5100 allows for video I might want to take advantage of it a few times. For the purpose of "home movie" quality video, and in the interest of conserving media card space, what do most people generally set their video to? 1080? 720? what frame rate? Is there really a need for full HD settings for video that will only be used to "capture memories for home use or quick Facebook posts?
