how 2 shoot 720p on SonyXDcamHD?

We've been shooting 1080i on our SonyXDcamHD but we'd like to try 720p. However, we can't find out how to do this in the owner's manual. Can anyone help?

Which camera do you have? I think all the XDCAM HD cameras, except the EX1, only shot 1080.

What Andrew said. The EX-1 is the only XDCAM HD camera that shoots in 720. When the PDW-F700 arrives, it will do 720.

F330/335 or F350/355 it's 1080 only.

Just curious why 720p.

The XDCAM HD Camera's Do have a progressive mode is that is what your were after. It even has a 24p Mode so... why were you trying to do 720p when you can get a 1080p picture. You can do 24p, 25p and 30p take your pick.
