Have searched quite a few forums regarding NTSC / PAL compatibilty and have been unable to reach a satisfactory conclusion regarding purchasing a cheaper NTSC HD camcorder from the USA. A lot of advise iappears outdated as it doesn't touch upon HD.
In a nutshell, I am about to spend £560 on a PAL canon HF-100 or £700 on an HF-10 SD high def camcorder for use in the UK. However, have come across some internet sites where it seems the equivalent NTSC camcorder is £100-£200 cheaper. I am assured by the seller that it will be 100% compatible with HD televisions here and also a DVD writer I have.
Does anyone own the above NTSC camcorder or similar HD camcorder and have any experience with playback through UK PAL HDTV sets and indeed any experience with compatibilty / quality of video when doing the editing / blu-ray burning process.
