Hey Everyone,

I'm shooting in Southern Africa next January. Does anybody have experience shooting in this part of the world? Any advice is much appreciated.

and South Africa is PAL.

Here's a tip: 50Hz = 25 fps and 60Hz = 30 fps. The electricity determines the TV type. That is why PAL didn't fly in the US even though PAL had better resolution.
