Pal A1

Hey guys,

Looking at buying the A1 in a few weeks when it comes out here in Australia.

The PAL version shoots either 50i or 25f.
-Is 25f 'true' progressive (not something like the Sony's 24f CineFrame?).
-Apart from the 4% speed difference, is 25f the same as NTSC models 24f setting? (In principle)

Cheers,

Al

"True" progressive is a marketing term. For all intents and purposes, Frame mode is progressive scan. It is entirely different from CineFrame; there is no commonality there.

We've covered Frame mode before in a number of endless discussions... just search here and in the XL H1 forum.

25F and 24F are just the same except for the 1fps difference.
