For starters, having an NTSC television to display your footage.

Many folks consider the PAL versions of cameras to be better than NTSC for a variety of technical reasons, such as the slightly better resolution of PAL.

My advice: save up and get a new XM2 (PAL GL-2) or other kindred PAL camera. It will save you much expense in equipment and analgesics.
