Variable frame rates including 12P and 15P

Someone brought this up over on 2-pop, and I thought I'd mention it here.

Everyone knows the DVX100 is one of the few variable-frame-rate cameras available, with the native ability to shoot at 24P, 30P, and 60i (speaking NTSC, of course). With a little work in post, you can add two frame rates to that: 12P and 15P.

For 12P, shoot at 24P and set your shutter to 1/24. Then in post, drop every other frame -- the results will be 12 progressive frames per second, captured at 1/24 shutter, the same look as would be accomplished on a film camera shooting 12fps with a 180-degree shutter.

For 15P, shoot at 30P with a 1/30 shutter, and drop every other frame.

So, 12P, 15P, 24P, 30P, 60i... this is starting to look like a little SD mini-Varicam!
