Hi folks,

I've been looking to play around with the consumer Canon HF100, do you know if its 24 p mode is real progressive scan or is it one of those pixel shifting type of jobs like the XL-1's 30 P mode?

I was thinking of putting it together with an DOF adapter for my Nikon lenses.

Thanks,

- George.

..I got a chance to play with one. No serious shooting - but did have the opportunity to plug it into a Plasma TV and was rather impressed with what I saw. Forget about exposure latitude, but I liked the camera a lot actually. So much so that I am considering one as a research camera for documentary pre-production.

I want to learn more about the camera and Codec used. If anyone knows of any good resources for learning more about the pros and cons of working in the HF100 codec, please do post about that.

I don't know if the 24p mode is real or not. I did switch between 24 and 30 and honestly I did not notice a difference on the play back.

The lens is fast though at F 1.8 and there are lots of different frame rate options on the camera for shooting in low light. You can get shallow DOF with this little cam.
