I looked at the XM2 today and the manual said it could 25p with an increament of 1.5 in resolution.
is the canon XM2 a reall progessive cam oder does it just interpolate the fields?

[neil] "is the canon XM2 a reall progessive cam oder does it just interpolate the fields?"

I'm assuming that the XM2 will basically be the same internally as the NTSC version GL2, which shoots in either interlaced mode or in "frame mode". Frame mode combines the two interlaced fields into one before it's recorded to tape. The popular belief is that a considerable amount of picture resolution is lost with this method. Frame mode is not progressive scanning, which records one complete picture for every frame without having to combine the interlaced fields. Progressive scanning is not possible without using progressive scan CCD's, which the GL2/XM2 does not have. Frame mode on the GL2 is recorded at 30fps. whereas the XM2 will shoot in the PAL equivelant of 25 fps.

You will make a better job with shooting interlaced video and deinterlace it in post.
