'Progressive look' not there in HDV25p...

I'm currently filming in DV25p as I have no current workflow to play with HDV as yet (immiently to change I hope!). The 'filmic' juddery feel is right there and with careful pans and subject placings I get just the look I was after. However, in HDV25p when filming this look is not there until playback (same with 24p?) - therefore unless you've pretty much mastered the progressive filming art I'm guessing it's likely you would mess up a couple of takes?
Unless DV 25p is not really true progressive and this is a 'synthesised' look where as HDV25/24 is and the results are only noticed on playback...am I making sense?!?!?

Yours, almost getting there...

No - the reason is that you can see 50p in the viewfinder that comes from the camera-head. Only 25 frames are recorded to tape. It is true progressive, but you can't see it at the viewfinder (which is indeed really too bad...)

Thanks Werner Wesp - Is that a problem native to this particular camera...although saying that there isn't such a huge market of HDV progressive camera's at the moment is there?
Obviously many of you have been using the 24/25p with no problems so is it a case of careful planning of shots?
Cheers.

It is particular to this camcorder indeed. I have one and most of the time it doesn't constitute a problem - but sometimes it's irritating: e.g. you can't SEE if you're panning at the right speed...

Thanks for the confirmation Werner. I guess I'm best 'practicing' with the DV 25p until I'm comfortable with the results - then begin to use HDV 25p (true progressive).
