On Sony NEX-7 high-end APS-C mirrorless camera first look article (355 comments in total)

In a "first look" review on the imaging-resource site the author stated :

"...when set to NTSC mode, the available progressive-scan rate are 60 fps (28Mbps) or 24 fps (24 Mbps or 17 Mbps), and you can also opt for an interlaced 60 fps (24 Mbps or 17 Mbps). If you switch to PAL mode, the options are the same, except that the 60 fps rates are replaced by 50 fps equivalents, and the 24 fps rates by 25 fps ones."

It seems to indicate that it is possible with the NEX-7 to switch between PAL and NTSC which would be a great feature for travelers like me haunted by horizontal banding issues in countries with a different AC frequency (50hz vs 60hz). But since Sony has not included this possibility in most of their cameras and camcorders, I was surprised to see mention of it.

Can anybody here confirm whether or not this is in fact true, or just wishful thinking from the author of the aforementioned review.

Thanks
