Yeah, the problem is that the footage is for local HD broadcast news, so I was hoping to get around 25 at a minimum (typical hd broadcast comes in at around 20 I believe). Of course the footage looks good and all, but the mbps I have here (unless I'm missing something) is a great deal lower than we (the dps, producer and I) had agreed upon.

It's just really curious to me because both of the DPs have a ton of experience and both explicitly mentioned they were shooting at 100. And I know the cameras are capable of doing just that, so it leaves me wondering. I Might have to have a conversation with our producer, but I don't want to do that and then find out I'm just being a dope and missing something obvious.
