ntsc HD vs pal HD for the web
on May 30, 2010 at 10:10:57 pm

Hello All.

I am producing web content these days. Lots of how to videos, viral videos, things like that. I started off shooting everything NTSC with a jvc hm700u. Its a great camera. recently I picked up a canon rebel t2i.

My question is...

Everything I am shooting is for the web. Does it matter if I shoot 24pNTSC or 25pPAL? Are there advantages to one over the other?

Where are you located? If you are in the US, you are only going to get more headaches with 25 fps. Outdoors is fine, but once you get indoors you'll get light flicker off of anything thats based in the 60hz system. And constant flickering on web videos isn't pretty... :)

Plus not all external monitors will use PAL, so if you ever do go to BluRay/DVD thats going to cause problems, you'll have to convert using software (Hardware conversions are expensive), and conversion by software usually takes forever and you end up with a softer image.
