No Dave, on the Vixia models the full range of frame rates available in Normal (Standard) mode are also available in Cinema Mode, namely:

AVCHD: 23.98p, 29.97PF, 59.94i, and 59.94p (when 28Mbps selected)

MP4: 23.98p, 29.97p and 59.94p (when 35Mbps selected)

I'm surprised you can't shoot Cinema Mode in 50p on the Legria HFG30/40's

Really? Not that I have tried, the manual is pretty clear.

Re: HF G40 question

Guess I should have double checked...'cos the Manual is right and I'm wrong.

If you select 59.94p (35Mbps) in mp4 format in Standard (Normal) mode and switch to Cinema Mode it changes to 29.97p.

If you select 59.94p (28Mbps) in AVCHD format in Standard (Normal) mode and switch to Cinema Mode it changes to 59.94i.

So no 59.94p in Cinema Mode but you do at least have the options of 23.98p and 29.97p in mp4 format and 23.98p, 29.97PF, 59.94i in AVCHD format.

Shows how much I use Cinema Mode.
