Sailboats Passing Each Other Zoom Test In Waikiki,
This review is from: Canon SX40 HS 12.1MP Digital Camera with 35x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch Vari-Angle Wide LCD (Camera)
In this video there are two sailboats passing each other nearly a half a mile out off of Waikiki Beach. The zoom on this Canon SX40 is pretty amazing as you can see. I'm happy with the camera as it also takes nice photos also.

You're right that the 1080p is at 24fps. I noted that before I got the
SX40. As for whether it's a speed that can be noticeable well maybe you've got a better eye than I do. If that's the case then you're smart to stay away from the SX40.

FreestyleFrEaK obviously doesn't know that nearly all movies since the 1920's have been shot at 24fps to maintain the "film-look" that audiences have become accustomed to and they are certainly not "choppy." I think that Canon made a smart choice about this frame rate, because it reduces "judder" while making videos appear more like theater movies rather than looking like daytime soap operas.

Very impressive and extremely clear for such a long lens video shoot. Plan to buy one soon. And every Oscar winning movie was shot at 24 fps.
