    I am going to a shoot today that requires several cameras. Two are those
    Panasonic 24 fps and one is a Canon GL2 30fps. Is there any problems that
    should arise or that I should be aware of when trying to edit both types of
    footage into one finished piece? Any suggestions would be really

    I presume you are referring to the Panasonic DVX100(A) cameras.

    If you are planning to edit in 24p you would have to convert the canon
    footage into 24p. I suggest doing a test with both canon and pana
    cameras, including conversion of the canon footage and dropping footage
    from both cameras in the editing sw timeline. Make sure your editor
    supports 24p (sony vegas is a great choice for 24p).

    Another thing to consider is the color space setting on the panasonic
    cameras - in 24p mode they default to "film-look" gamma. It might take
    some tweaking to get the same colors from both the panasonic and canon
    cameras. Again, do a test and make the adjustments before the shoots.

    Keep in mind that the autofocus is very slow in 24p - almost useless in
    low light.
