      I shot video on my Sony PXW-X70 camera. The settings were 1080/50i FX.
      I set it at 50i as I wanted to slow down the footage in post.

      But when I imported the clips into Premiere Pro, all of the clips were in 25fps and not 50fps.
      Why is that? Can I change them?

      The clips in the camera still say 50i but in Premiere, it’s 25fps.

      Any help appreciated!!

      You’ve made an error in your understanding of framerates. You see, 50i is 25FPS.

      To elaborate. 50i is interlaced footage. Two interlaced fields per frame gives you 25fps. You need to shoot at 50p which will give you 50fps.
