The difference between PAL & NTSC models JVC HD200

Can anyone tell me the difference between the JVC GY-HD200UP & the JVC GY-HD200U?

So what I gather is for HDV both cameras offer identical frame rates. The B&H site below lists identical specs for both PAL & NTSC versions in the signal system. Is price the only difference?


The SPECS FROM THE B&H PHOTO SITE say:

"DV/HDV Recording Formats: 720/24p, 720/25p, 720/30p, 720/50p, 720/60p, 480/24p, 480/60i"

They are different.
Just make sure that you always stick with electronics that are designed for your region.
They don't just make PAL for the fun of it.

Easy for you to say if you live in the USA. These cameras cost about double in Europe. If I only plan on shooting HDV with the JVC I don't see any difference. The specs at the retailer's site are vague and the specs on JVC's site don't exist.

Does anybody own these two cameras? Any difference?

This is probably too late to help the enquirer but I'll mention it in case other have the same question in future. There is NO DIFFERENCE when shooting HDV. Just be sure to use the appropriate frame rate (i.e., 25/50p in 50Hz countries).* However the NTSC model will not play or record PAL DV (I own the 110U and have tested this). Based on this, I assume the 110/111 PAL models will not play or record NTSC. In other words, if you will only use the camera for shooting HDV buying an NTSC model to use in Europe will not be a problem.

Incidentally, the Sony EX1 is 100% PAL/NTSC agnostic (again uses of appropriate frame rate is recommended.

*Video shot at 25p on the NTSC model outputs through component as 50p, i.e., as "PAL", according to my Sony Luma. Therefor monitoring should not be an issue either.

Hi, I have the same question and I think I hasnĀ“t been answered yet. The question is this: when I shoot in a HD200U (supposed to be "NTSC") in 25p what kind of signal I get in a monitor, PAL or NTSC??? I mean a common interlaced monitor.


Thanks!!!

PD sorry for my english...
