Question: Is 50i better than 25p? (resp 60i better than 30p) A couple of days back I started a thread asking What 1080p camera's are available? Shooting scenes containing pan-movements with my HDV 1080i camera* produces artifacts: - horizontal pan: vertical lines are jarred/ have saw-tooth edges - vertical pan: horizontal lines jitter up/down (they seem alive) Knowing 50i is 50 "half frames**" per second, my logic says 25p - 25 "full frames" per second does give a better result ... a result with less artifacts. Q: Is this true? Q: Is it true that de-interlacing 50i material gives a worse result than shooting 25p native? Coen Jeukens (*) Sony HDR HC7 (**) Though the capture rate of 50i is twice of 25p, with movement each half frame captures displacement ... and thus the two half frames together constitute blurred frame.
