If you have a Panasonic HVX-200 and a FireWire cable and a laptop running Final Cut Pro (an external HD doesn't hurt, even a USB one) you can capture 720 live.
I won a bet today setting it up which is really why I'm mentioning it now (it was -and I'm quoting here- "a free anything" at a nearby coffee house, btw which became a free French Press...'What's that?' the producer said pointing "You said 'a free anything.'").
The trick is to set the HVX to 720 24p (NOT 720 24pn) and set Final Cut to Non-Controllable Device and 720 24p.
