Excuse my bad english!
I don't really know where to post this, if this is the wrong place please tell me!
I'm new in this world of cameras.
What's the real difference between 24p video and 24p film? I'm reffering to the cine look.
I heard if you want to shot 24p digital with your camera (e.g with AG-DVX100) still won't look like film.
I didn't find a complete explanation for that.
The motion of a movie shot in digital (24p) looks to be a little faster. Seems to have more "frames" than 24 for a newbie like me. A movie shot in 24p (digital) looks more realistic and faster than a film one. All motion look different.
Thank you!

24P video with a 1/48th shutter simulates the motion reproduction of 24 fps film with a standard 180 degree shutter. It also avoids the artifacts of interlaced-scan capture and motion. That's the extent to which shooting at 24P by itself can emulate film. There are other attributes to film beyond just motion reproduction.

No, it's not exactly the same type of motion, for various reasons. One may be due to how you are watching the 24P footage -- things tend to look strobier on the camera's LCD screen for example. The increased depth of field of DV makes a background that is moving look more prominent, so you may notice the strobing more. An electronic shutter is more on/off than a moving film shutter, so that may add to some sharpening of motion.

The frame rate is the same so the speed is the same.
