I have done some searching on here and I really do not know much about video cameras. Are most of you shooting in 24p? I am looking for a good all around video camera say under $1500. If most people want their video recorded in 24p. What are my options? I did'nt see a Sony that recorded in 24p. Is that correct? Any suggestion and help would be appreciated.

Most people don't want 24p. The only people who typically want 24p are people shooting "fiction" or "theatrical" work. News, television, sports, documentaries, typical stick with the normal 29.97fps (30fps).

Don't worry about frame rates. End the discussion with just go buy a Sony HC5,9,7 or equivalent if you like tape based formats. If not, consider the Sony CX12 that shoots AVCHD or the Panasonic AVCHD. Stay away from Canon's, unless you look at the Canon 5DMarkII.

If you want a bigger, more pro camera, consider the Pany HVX200/170 or Sony EX1.

My guess is, if you don't know the ins and outs of video, you don't need anything more than the Sony HC5,7,9. It's easy to shoot with, requires no conversion to edit, it's affordable, and works.

Again, forget about 24p, it's a non-isssue.
