Advantages/Disadvantages of shooting progressive mode?

I'm comparing the TRV950 and GL2. Of course the GL2 costs more, so the question one must answer is, what do I get for the additional cost. Well, one feature is progressive mode. I understand what progressive mode is technically. But how does it affect your results, the final video?

I shoot indoor sporting events, namely Judo. I edit and add slow motion replays. Will progressive mode video give me better slow motion? What are the disadvantages of progressive mode? Does it blur when shooting action sequences? Does it require better lighting? (Remember, I shoot indoors with available lighting).


Thanks!

There are tons of posts on this subject. Try doing a search on 'frame movie' or progressive and read through some of the posts.

One of the things you may find is that some people recommend shooting in standard modes and use Premiere to de-interlace things.

Search on and then post again.
