"Cinematic mode" - cineframe 24? something else?

Just curious if anyone has the scoop on what the press release is calling "cinematic mode." It of course doesn't mean 24p. But it's not saying "cineframe" either. Could this be something else? Another scheme along the lines of the way the Panasonic GS400 has a "cinema" mode that while not 24p nicely emulates filmic cadence?

thx!

Man, they should code name this new cam "hotcakes" because that is what it's going to sell like.

Like someone said over at one of the other forums: it'll be nice to shoot HD for the same price as one P2 card!!!

Until Sony elaborates, or we get test footage - no one knows.

In principle, one of the benefits of CMOS sensors is easier clocking, and hence easier implementation of different frame rates. However, if this was 24p, you can bet Sony would advertise the heck out of it.

As an interesting side note - I think the future of camcorders with CMOS sensors will be a "video buffer" worth several GB of RAM. If the sensors can be variably timed, camcorders could be configured to record at variable frame-rates (some CMOS camcorders do 10000 fps!!)... they would load up the buffer, and then write to tape/memory at a standard frame rate (i.e., 30 fps) and play catch up with the recordable media (be in solid state, tape, optical disk, whatever). How cool would that be?

what about progressive with cmos?

I'm sorry, my knowledge so far is very limited (okay, it's like that for everything in life)...

but your points are interesting and make me wonder - would it be easier to do progressive capture with cmos? no difference?

thanks..
