is that ever a good question.  i anticipate a very good response.

having worked in both NTSC and PAL, and now in a PAL situation, I  
cringe when I crossover into the 50Hz world because my eyes are just  
not programmed for the flicker, at first.

but a funny thing happens: after a day or two, you don't notice it any  
more (at least I don't).  the brain adapts, resynchronizes.

The same happened to me when I worked in 1080/24p, at first I thought  
eeek, this is really a step backwards.  But after a few days, it was  
almost invisible, except on those nasty pans.   And as you noted,  
going back to film, it makes the whole management of the flow a lot  
easier.  But...
