Frame Rate options now official from Panasonic

Check it out:

Link to Panasonic HVX200 Product Page

Listed as "variable" frame rates in 720p mode: 12, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 30, 32, 36, 48 , 60fps

I have a bit of a problem with them wording this as "variable" unless the HVX really can ramp up or down from one frame rate to another while shooting. Otherwise it should be listed as "selectable" frame rates. Still pretty cool though!

The Panasonic site states:
" 1080/60i, 1080/24p, 1080/30p, 720/60p, 720/24p, 720/30p, 480/60i, 480/24p, 480/30p

Variable frame rates in 720p mode: 12, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 30, 32, 36, 48 , 60fps"

For some reason they wrote the different flavors of 720p in the second line and didn't continue the first line as 720/12p, 720/18p... and so on. Was it to separate the nonstandard rates from the standard ones? or is it really "variable" and not only "selectable"?

To be honest, at this price point I can live with either and be happy about it.

Now, if it can be done in DVCPRO50/25 that would be cool for us who will do more SD work on it than HD in the short term.

It is 'selectable'
I think you're right, it was probably done to separate the nonstandard rates from the standard ones.

It can't be done directly in DV50 or DV25, but you can record those rates in 720P mode onto P2 cards and then downconvert those clips to DV25 in the camera (by recording them onto the DV tape transport after shooting).

Then again, you can always downconvert in post...so I guess that's not that big a deal, unless you are shooting a DV project for someone else who will need to take the tapes at the end of the day.

Hey, that's cool! I didn't know that you're able to downcovert to tape in camera. So backing up to tape is always possible but with DV25 quality.
Believe me, having much more work on SD than HD, I find it cool.
