PC 101 PAL,NTSC QUESTION? Can't Post

HELLO TO ALL,

I HAVE A QUESTION TO OWNERS OF AN U.S. SONY PC-101,OR TO ALL WHO HAVE PURCHASED A PC 101 IN THE U.S.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO PLAYBACK THE TAPE ON PAL TVs?

IM FROM EUROPE,CROATIA AND FOUND A GOOD OFFER REGARDING THE PC-101 IN THE U.S.

THIS MODEL HAS HERE IN EUROPE A PAL,NTSC SWITCH SO WE CAN IT ON BOTH FORMATS.

THANXCool

What's up with that poll??

I do not thing the US 101's can playback PAL. My box says "For NTSC System" I don't know of any settings in the camera that will allow it either.

Neither an owner nor purchaser, though have some experience (with a top US team bringing an NTSC cam to a European comp despite FAI rules Wink).
NO, you won't be able to playback on PAL TVset (until it has multy-system support... most of modern European sets has this feature... if not you can plug your cam to a multy-sys videorecorder which may work as a de-coder).
Interestingly enough, if you fire-wire your NTSC miniDV to a PAL miniDV, you will be able to copy your NTSC material (you also can play out NTSC video on a PAL miniDV). But even recorded by a PAL cam, video will appear to be recorded in NTSC!
Looks like you can get a cam cheaper in the States, but is it worth all the trouble with playback/exchange?
Doubt it.
