    just wondering if someone has reasons why it's better to shoot in 720p since it's progressive scan vs. 1080i (interlaced)? Is it better to just shoot in 1080i due to the increased resolution?

    Personally I hate shooting in interlaced, due to conversion issues. It's difficult to find a deinterlacer that does a good job and it's easy to find deinterlacers that !@#$ it up one way or another. Watch one of those 1080i videos in VLC and then claw your eyes out. Much easier to just stick to progressive recording.
