Canon Vixia HF S100 for use in Europe/PAL?

Is the NTSC / PAL difference relevant these days? I'm considering buying a Canon Vixia HF S100 but will mainly use it in Europe and with PAL TVs etc. OTOH, I will edit on my MacBook Pro first. Will much quality be lost if transcoding to PAL? I will mostly view the end results on computers anyway...

Thanks for any input.

Well i don't know about NTSC vs PAL but I can tell you that I have one and I cannot get a timecode out of my clips. I was told that I would be able to (that's why I bought it) but the manual does not mention timecode and even Canon Tech Support said you cannot get timecode out of this camera unless you use some third party software.

Hope this helps in your buying process.

BTW - if anyone has this camera and IS able to get timecode off each clip please let me know how. Either in this thread or email me ssp@ssptv.com The way I tried to do it was download all the clips from the camera to my Final Cut and do a "Log and Tranfer" into a project.
If there's another way, i am interested.

Sorry to change the topic Rob but this might help you too. :)

TIA

Sam
