The Sony 24F CineFrame is next to useless by most accounts, since it processes 60i capture, converts it to a fake 24P, and then reconverts it to 60i again with a pulldown. You're better off using 25F, since that is processed from 50i, or just shooting 50i and deinterlacing it to 25P, assuming you get an HDV camera with that option.
The Canon 24F CineFrame is much better than the Sony's, since it uses a 48i capture for processing to 24P, and then doesn't reconvert it to 60i (unless, I guess, you set the camera to do that... not sure.)
There are some true 24P HDV cameras on the market. Sony is coming out with one finally:
The more expensive prosumer HDV/DVCPROHD cameras like the Panasonic HVX200 and the JVC HDV 720P camcorders do 24P.

I will keep that in mind. I have a bit more research to do if I start shooting HD.
