    What are the differences between 50i and 50p/25p?

    • Answer
    • [50i] records using the interlace scanning system, and [50p]/[25p] records using the progressive scanning system.

      [50p] records 50 frames per second, while [25p] records 25 frames per second. If you set the frame rate to [25p], you can record movies which provide an atmosphere closer to that of film images.

      [50i] is recommended for normal recording.The interlace scanning system reads even-numbered and odd-numbered scanning lines alternately. Meanwhile, the progressive scanning system reads even-numbered and odd-numbered scanning lines simultaneously thus it has double information per unit timea

      * compared with the interlace scanning system.

      * in case of [50p]
