      I’m trying to understand the differences between all these things. From what I understand, 60i means 60 interlaced frames per second. Now, does 30p and 24p mean 30 and 24 progressive frames per second? If that’s the case on those, then what’s up with 720p and 1080i? I think it has to do with resolution. Would that mean that a camera with all these specs could film 24fps at 720 lines or at 1080 lines, or both? It’s just all a bit confusing.
