    Zero in my opinion but some folks seem to like the look.

    Hey Noah, Does 30P require a pull down mechanism like 24p? My guess would be no...

    No- there is no need because there are 30 progressive frames exactly matching 60 interlaced fields.

    The only case would be in lighting. If you are shooting with an HMI without a filcker free balast, or in areas that have alot of fluorescent (not Kino) lighting (i.e. a store) then shooting 24p will have lighting variances during the shot. Shooting at 30p should not, and then you can also do what ever you want in Magic Bullet.

    Actually - you can get flourescent flicker in 30p as easily, if not easier, than 24p.

    You get filcker in 30. You get a slow dimming and brightening in 24.

    You will also get 'dimming and brightening' in 30 with any use of the shutter or pscan, under flourescents. The flicker, is a color temperature varience that under certain shutter speeds, becomes like looking at bicycle spokes. You start to see the color temperature varience oscillate at slower speeds.

    It's the oscillating color temperature that also causes the dimming and brightening.
