However, you can effectively make for it by switching shutter off, thus gaining one stop, which is only really viable in progressive as you don't get the motion blur you would get in interlaced..."

Is it more clear now?
Piotr. Yes you can turn the shutter off in progressive and not interlaced because to much motion blur. However I would have thought with the shutter off in progressive there would still be to much motion blur. I think I will stick to having the shutter on at an angle of 180 degrees and turn it off for filming in low light!

This is exactly what I have been doing, Mark, since my first progressive camera - after all, the extra sensitivity is only needed in low light :)
