Not for your average YouTube movie, this professional level HD camcorder is the first to capture video at 24P, that is 24 frames per second at 1080p resolution.  Amateur cinematographers can now produce that film-look that normal cameras simply can't produce.  Sony's technology allows a number of framerates to be captured, 24, 30, 60 and all the way up to a super speed of 240, which allows for smooth slow motion playback.

Hey Omar I have a camera you could borrow anytime, but you would be the next Akira Kurosawa.

I know I'd never come close to making use of what this camera could offer, but somewhere in the back of my head, I have a feeling that I'd become the next Scorsese if I just had the right equipment.
