I am shooting my next film digitally. I shoot stop-motion and am using a Nikon D80. The live action sequences are going to be shot with a panasonic HVX 200. My res on the stop-motion sequences is 1920X1080. Does the HVX 200 shoot this res at a true 24fps? This is important because I am finishing on 35mm film.

The HVX200 records 720x960 at 24fps, or 1080x1280 at 60i by adding a 3:2 pulldown to 24fps-captured footage. The camera, however, uses a 540x960 chipset and essentially "uprezes" the footage to the desired size. So while the image may be the correct pixel size for post purposes, the image quality will not be the same.

But as always you should test. The numbers don't tell the whole story. If you're going to spend the money to burn a 35mm filmout, it's worth shooting some tests with different cameras.
