Hi all,

I was thinking of getting a miniDV camcorder for my wife's relatives in Europe. I'm not too sure about the video standards there, but will they be able to play the captured video back on their TV?

In Europe the display standard is PAL (Phase Alternating Line) vs NTSC (National Television System Committee), in the US. If you are buying a DV camera for someone to use in Europe, then the camera should support the PAL format. You will not be able to buy PAL compatible DV camera's in US stores like Best Buy and Circuit City, etc, but they can be bought on line. On line vedors such as B&H Photo carry NTSC and PAL compatible equipment.
