i jus tread on another post that the GS can only pump out 1/60 shutter.. (1/50 in PAL land) and apparently the DVCcan go lower.. now im thinkin if the DVC can handle 1/25 @ 25fps frame mode.. were looking as a closer mactch to teh DVX than i first thought.. that is of course if it can actually do 1/25.. which noone can attest to right now..

so.. a slower shutter, means more light gettin in..
with more light, heres hoping the performance isnt substandard..

Peter,

No, DVC30 does not have 25fps. With GS100/400, only substitute to the slower shutter speed is the night mode.

Only other choice to do 25fps is Cannon XL2 and XL2 has advantage in hi-res wide (a.k.a anamorphic or 16:9) which you have to buy expensive anamorphic lens with DVX100a and you would loose some brightness.

My main cam would be XL2 when it is available.

A PAL DVC30 would have a 25fps frame mode, correct?

The brochure below mentions slow shutter speeds all the way down to 1/4 on the NTSC DVC30. I'm not sure about PAL DVC30.

Does the DVC30 have an external audio input for mic ( unbalanced ) and can this be switched to line in? I know that the xlr attachement has this capability. I would prefer to use my small mixer and feed just line to the DVC30. Since the manual isn't up on the Panasonic site yet I have not been able to get all the fine details!!!

oops, sorry Tommy, I was talking about NTSC. Not sure about PAL.

Pal is the same, the only difference is the resolution and frame rate.

one of the selling points of this cam is its frame mode
