Sony HD camcorder 2007/12/18 17:36
Hi,
Would appreciate any help on this. I'm thinking of buying a Sony HD camcorder in Japan but wondering would it work on the PAL system in Europe.
No techie jargon just clarity please.
thanks

NTSC/PAL 2007/12/18 18:55
Pat,

Unless you go to a duty-free shop or one that specializes in overseas models, video cameras on sale in Japan will be NTSC and not compatible with the European PAL system.
There are duty-free shops (e.g. Laox Duty Free) in Akihabara which sell PAL equipment. It's generally more expensive than the equivalent Japanese models, though.
