Garman, I just hate the inevitable motion stutter that comes with 24p, and to a lesser degree 30p. Shots must be carefully planned to avoid this stutter, as does panning. Try shooting someone running or even walking quickly in close proximity to the camera. It looks like a series of still frames. Try shooting moving cars with the different frame rates and see what you think. 24p is not, IMO, for 'running & gunning'.
This is not something inherent in the XA10, but it's something that's painfully evident to me with every cam I've owned that shoots 24p. At least Canon gives us 30p which is a bit better in that regard. But whenever you shoot in a slower frame rate, motion smoothness will suffer.
Some like the look, actually many love the look, but sure as heck that 'look' has always eluded me. But kudos to Canon for giving us so many frame rates.
