The manual says its frame rate is "close to that of a movie, this mode can be used to create a cinematic-like appearance."

It's supposed to record individual frames for capture, as opposed to interlaced images. It claims to increase vertical resolution by 1.5x

I couldn't see a difference. Is it an early precursor to 24P?

How would I best utilize this feature for maximum effect?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that the frame movie mode on the GL2 is just trying to copy 24p. The sensors are still 60i and it is combining the two interlaced frames and removing 6 frames a second to get 24. This is much worse than real 24p and it doesn't end up looking like regular 24p or like film.
