Until quite recently, you'd have to look to professional video cameras in order to have this sophisticated tool at your command. In addition to the standard interlaced video frame rate of 60i, you may choose to set the VIXIA HV40 to record 30p Progressive Frame Rate. This is particularly useful for footage you plan to upload to the Internet for sharing. In addition, this setting gives enhanced quality to still images captured after recording. 30p Progressive Mode is also excellent for capturing quick action shots and sporting events.
