slow motion grayed out on sony z7

hey crew...working w/ sony z7 for the first time and trying to do the slow motion record but it's grayed out in the menu settings...thought it was because i was shooting in progressive 24p and switched to interlaced but it was still grayed out...did a search w/in the forum but couldn't find any posts....any help is greatly appreciated...

peace,

You're right - you have to be in interlaced. More specifically - I think it has to a 60i setting.
Initially I thought it also had to be in DV mode, but I got it to work in HDV mode as well.

Haven't used it in a while, so just going from memory right now.

Removed my answer because I confused the Z7 with the EX3. Sorry, my bad! ;-)
