I am not technical so I would like to know if setting the Powerline Frequency to 60 Hz in the UK will pose any problems.

I'm finding that playing back the video on an SD card in the app exibits stuttering (not flickering) when I set it to 50 Hz whereas 60 Hz seems to improve things much more. Can using 60 Hz damage anything or cause any other issues?

Found an explanation on Quora, from what i understand, it will affect the image quality.

  @Riley_Blue Thanks for your reply. This is what I find a little strange. The UK should be 50Hz but my C100 looks better at 60Hz. I face it outside through a window and the cars don't drive smoothly along the road unless I set it to 60Hz. They seems to stop and start. If I save the video it seems smoother.
