G'day all you film buffs, in my camera menu and also the instruction book I don't seem to have the functions of 50i and 60i as some of you my have with some of those slightly more advanced cameras.

Am I correct?

If so I take it that I just have to make do with the 1080i function (or Hi Def), manual exposure and shutter speed to get the best possible picture to suit the type of film I am shooting.

I've had this camera for around two years now and am relatively conversant with most of the functions.

I am both a short film maker and segment Producer, camera operator and Presenter on a Community TV Channel in Australia.

Thanks Nate, I will have to have a good look through the on camera menu.

Would this be the only setting with the A1P?

If so then I should find nothing in the menu.
