Hey all,

Has anyone shot PAL on the HD100 in the US and if so how did it work and did you have any workflow issues?

Hi Tim,

In HDV mode 'PAL' is no big deal and you don't even need a PAL camera--just shoot in 25/50p and use the appropriate timeline in your NLE.* In DV mode you'll need a PAL model, and all of the same implications apply as would with any miniDV camera. I would advise against mixing 25/50p material with 30/60p material, however, as the framerate conversion can sometimes produces weird effects.

*One caveat: shooting 25 or 50 fps (in any formant including film) in a country such as the US were the mains power (AC) is 60 cycle can result in lights appearing to flicker--you'll have to adjust the shutter speed to eliminate this; in general, reducing the shutter speed should solve the problem. Of course, you'll be able to see this in the viewfinder.
