Traveling to Turkey

I need some help!!
I will traveling to Turkey to teach children from 12 th grade down how to video record and edit their footage. I need to know the power requirements, how I should I charge, and how much I should charge.

I am new at entering Threads so if it takes me a while to answer it is because I am having trouble finding my way around this.

Thank you for your help.

Turkey is a 220v/50Hz country, using the common european-style 2-pin plug. Most outlets I've seen there are the grounded style, where there is a recess for the plug body and a grounding lug that will be contacted by a grounding plug.

Here is the 2-pin, no ground adaptor:

And this is the grounding version, where the plug body fits into the jack:

Either of these will adapt a US plug. Many battery chargers will work there - check the info plate to see if it can be used with 220v/50Hz.

Turkey uses the PAL video system, which is mostly incompatible with US cameras, vcrs, dvd players and TV sets.

Thank you Sean and Seth

Sean; At this point I don't have all the information, so I don't know what part I will be going to. I did not want to wait until the last minute to ask for help.
Seth; thank you for the voltage requirements to Turkey. I thought they were on the PAL system, but I thought this was a setting you could change in the camera, but when I think about it I don't remember seeing any settings in any of the equipment I use, so that was a heads up for me to realize I must purchase equipment that works with the PAL system.

Thank you both for your help!!
