Not always Tom, I am using 30fps for a lot of work these days, it opens up the North American market for my DVD sales and NTSC plays OK on a PAL system TV too. ( Call me old fashioned, but I still deliver all the work in SD)

It's all over now Baby Blue. CCDs have had their day.

Fair enough Tom, I am sure you know what is acceptable to you and what is not.

Getting back to the "hubub"of CMOS Rolling Shutter:

I have used the EX-1 to record many things including sporting events and weddings. I have noticed skew on fast pans in sports and I've noticed 1/2 flashed frames in wedding footage - but the clients NEVER have. And they always comment on how sharp the picture is.

Yes, the artifacts are there and we see them because we know to look for them, and you might want to avoid CMOS for special effects work as has been stated, but the typical wedding/corporate client won't notice and in filmmaking you get to control the shoot to avoid these shortcomings.

In short, the artifacts are there, but I wouldn't let it stop you from shooting on an EX.

It's really an awesome camera for the price.
