I am going to be shooting footage for a music video later today, and again in a week in a professional studio setting, and I am unsure whether or not I will have enough light to shoot in. I don't have access to supplementary lights, so I have to work with what is there. I was reading that shooting in 60i would help with low light, is this true? And, to complete my question, I can't seem to find 60i as an option. I can shoot in 24p, 30, etc. Am I missing it, or does my model not have this (Panasonic ag100b). Thank you so much for your help, I am still learning how to get the most out of my camera.

Turning the progressive scan "off" selects 60i capture (Scene File>Progressive>OFF). It's also the default in scene files F1-F4, if I recall.

You either shoot 60i for a small amount of extra sensitivity and accept the interlaced look, or you shoot in 24P and accept the added noise from turning the gain up to +6db. Test both methods with the camera (and a decent monitor, if possible) and see which look you prefer.
