I find it very interesting and have been reading about it from the first theoretical model to the final product. Still, I don't think it's comparable to "regular" cameras or even usable for regular photography at this time. Focusing in post-production has some potential, but as long as the resolution and image quality aren't massively improved, I don't see it being a real alternative. Call me old-fashioned, but I really don't know what I'd do with this thing and can't do with my trusty 50D. Setting the focus in diagonal planes like with a view camera could be interesting, but I don't think that's possible with the current software. It's also possible with a tilt-shift-lens, but having a much easier way to do it would be cool.
Anyway, if this kind of sensor is ever built into a DSLR (or similar camera) and has enough resolution for a 30x45cm print at 300dpi, I'll try it for sure. But for now it just looks like a new toy for rich kids, not something a professional might use.

Danke... mein Englisch reicht zwar aus, um auch ohne Übersetzung alles zu verstehen und benutzen, aber jetzt kann ich vielleicht noch ein paar Leute überzeugen, die noch zurückgeschreckt sind. Wer es mit so einer guten Erklärung nicht versteht, ist sowieso zu blöd für ML ;)

I never had any stability problems with my 50D and ML (both 2.3 and various nightlies) except a single unreproducable lockup when stopping recording. I'd say it's pretty stable, especially for a camera that's not even built to record video.
As for your problem: It's probably FPS override. Regularly, video is recorded at 30FPS, but when you record at 15fps, it's still played at 30FPS, effectively doubling the speed. Of course you can record and play with 15FPS, but that may look a bit choppy and doesn't make much sense. Recording in lower framerates is mostly useful if you want to work with something else than NTSC standard or for timelapse, when you actually need to speed up the video. For example, recording with 1FPS and playing with 30 makes 1h of real time into 2min of timelapse without having to use the intervalometer.
