C100 Mark I has slow mo! Or does it?

Okay so I hear all this stuff about the C100 Mark I not having slow mo, but it has 60i? Drop the clip onto a 24P timeline and time remap it to 46% and its slow motion. What's up with that? And what are the drawbacks to that 60i stream? I'm not noticing and interlacing lines, looks the exact same as 24p.

Interlaced footage converted to progressive format lacks detail and looks pretty soft compared to a real progressive frame.

This is a cheap hack, but worth it when you consider the price difference between a C100 Mk1 versus a C100 Mk2.

Yeah after some playing around I tried to match as best I could as far as quality, not grade. Here is 24P: http://imgur.com/PVVfQFm

And 60i conformed: http://imgur.com/wlwyFZX

The only drawback you'll see is a little of softness, but I found it very usable in some situations that don't require extremely high quality.

I've had good results using the C100 mk1 with Atomos' external recorders. It records 59.94i and applies 3:2 pulldown while recording.

This is a little beside the point but why 46%? 40% of 60fps is exactly 24fps.

https://vimeo.com/117807130 you can see the capabilities of the c100 slow-motion starting at 3:01. it works fine to me. i think it will have trouble when you starting having no lights
