It appears that "Canon 1080p 24/25" will be our solution. I know one thing...I'll be checking software update daily :)

As posted elsewhere, check out this photo which shows the "easy setups" in 5.1.2

http://ibc.mikkowilson.com/photos/Da...s/IMG_3929.htm

The highlighted one says HDV 1080p25, and the one right above it says HDV 1080p24. Presumably that means Canon's 24F.

I'm wondering why there's no 1080 30p (30F) preset? 30F can be captured and edited in a regular HDV 60i timeline but anytime you render anything it will have interlace issues.

I suppose one can change the timeline to a different codec when finishing (like uncompressed 4:2:2) and then encode to a distribution codec like h.264 or WMV HD, but it doesn't make sense that there wouldn't be a 30p easy preset.
