I essentially know nothing about film or video, so please forgive my ignorance on this subject. I want to purchase a relatively cheap mini-dv cam. I am from the U.S. but live in Spain, so I am unsure about which type of system I should buy (PAL or NTSC).
My plan is to shoot video in Spain and send it digitally to my friend in the States for editing using Final Cut on a Mac. Will I run into any compatibility issues sending something shot in PAL to my friend who has an American-made computer? Does PAL/NTSC matter when it comes to loading, sending and editing on computers, or do issues only arise with television? I don't plan on making DVDs...the videos will only be for online use. Thank you in advance for your help.
