Hello everyone,

I am about to shoot a doc with the HV30. My question is about the 24 & 30 progressive modes. Are these true 24/30 P? Is there any advantage gained by using these vs. the HDV mode?

Also, any suggestions or comment regarding this camera is more than welcome.

Thanks

Amit

I think the p modes are 'Progressive Segmentation'. That is, splicing or 'segmenting' two interlaced frames to make a progressive one. But please back this up with someone who knows more that I do.

The HV30 is a cracking camera. :)

I know that 24 on the HV30 is not a true 24 frames per second but rather a 2:3 scheme. Three progressive frames followed by two interlaced frames. So for every five frames there are four fields recorded.
