It is 50i, which is 50 fields per second, in video mode. That translates to 25fps.

It's progressive scan mode is 15fps, which is not usuable for standard video.

If it's a PAL version you have Luca then it does 12.5fps PS or make that 25 full resolution frames every 2 seconds. The PD150 runs at twice this rate in prog scan.

They are both pal, but only the dvx100 is capable of 25fps in a progressive scan mode.

The PAL PD150 does normal PAL: 50 fields per second (that's 50 1/2 frames).

In progressive mode it does 12.5 frames per second.

The PAL DVX also captures 50 fields per second, like all PAL cams, but has the option to shoot 25 full frames per second.

pd 150 pal dvx 100 pal

so it would be better for making films, or the difference between the two is just matter of preference?
