60p / slow motion

A quick question regarding 60p...
The camera captures 60 full frames a second, but does it mean that if you converted it to 30p it would double in length giving you perfect 1/2 speed slow motion?
(in the same sense as if you overcranked a film camera to 48fps)

Thanks

Well it will capture 60 full frames a second and when slowed down to 30p will give you perfect half-speed motion.
