Yes, to each their own. I tried shooting in 60i and quite simply, I really don't like it....at least for certain situations. The motion is so ugly and news like if you are doing any kind of filmmaking. Looks too much like home video to me. I just get that home video feeling when I see that motion. It's sharp and clear, but that motion ruins it for me when it comes to filmmaking. I honestly don't like shooting family videos with it either. I just am not a fan of that 60i motion.

Of course I got the camera for the film look and feel and 60i, in an instant, takes me out of that feel with the motion alone. Every movement of the camera or movement in front of it screams "home video".

I'd gladly take 30p over 60i. Even it looks more filmlike. To each their own. :)

Cory you and i would never agree you hate life like interlaced as much as i detest jerky soft progressive, but i have to say progressive from consumer cams like the HV30 does not look like proffesional cinema,we are 25p here but it does not work for me.
Anyway good luck with your filming all the best.

It isn't just about the camera. Progressive shooting is a totally different style of shooting. It isn't because professionals use more professional cameras it is because they themselves are more professional.

The professionals manage to put out poor stuff at times,but if it is not the cameras they could save us some money and and use cheap machines.Anyway i am amateur but with 40 years filming i know what i like as do others no doubt.
