Does PAL XL1s have frame mode?

just ran into some post in classifieds, where it was stated that PAL version doesn't have frame movie mode.

Is it true?

I'm waiting on my XL1s PAL, and that sounds alarming.

I can confirm. I own a PAL XL1S and it comes with all the
buttons and other fine things as the NTSC model. No worries!
The only difference is in:

- Resolution: 720x576 instead of 720x480
- Frames per second: 25 (50i) instead of 30 (60i)
- I also believe PAL black is at 0 IRE instead of NTSC 7.5
- Shutter speeds (at least the low ones) are different.
1/25 instead of 1/30. 1/50 instead of 1/60...

Thats about it I think.
