1/36th and 1/30th require using synchro-scan. There will be no editing issues, because the frame rate is the same, just longer exposure.

Panning is IDENTICAL between DVX/24P and film. The motion is identical. If you want to pan smoothly, you'll have to pan slowly, just like with a film camera. The accepted rule of thumb is that an object should take about 7 seconds to cross the screen, so if you're panning across a landscape and a tree comes on the right side of the screen, it should take about 7 seconds before you pan fully across it and it exits the left. Any faster than that and it'll strobe -- just like it will on film. If you need to pan faster, you'd typically have your subject stay centered in the frame (i.e., following someone as they're walking quickly). The background will strobe terribly but the subject will be fairly stable. Watch for this shot in movies and you'll see the excessive strobing is just as prevalent in film as it is in 24P video.

I'll soon be posting some clips shot with the mini35 on the DVX, one of which is a nice extended dolly/pan shot. It looks exactly like film motion.
