Hi, I'm thinking about purchasing the Canon HV30 when it becomes available in March. If I buy it from the U.S. (I'm in the U.K.) I will make a substantial saving. My question relates to formats. I know that the US/Euro formats are NTSC and PAL respectively. Although I can get a PAL model through U.S. suppliers, NTSC models are going to be easier to get hold of. However, as I will be importing the video to my Macbook Pro, editing in iMovie/Final Cut express and subsequently writing to DVD or posting on youtube, with playback through LCD/Plasma screens. It's highly unlikely that I'll ever output directly to a CRT display. Should I still go for a PAL format camera or will the NTSC be fine for my purposes? Hope that make sense. Thanks in advance for any help, advice.
