GY-HD100E in an NTSC Environnement

Hi all,

I am on a rush here to get answer 'cos I might get the cam tonight if all is well. Someone here is making me a really good deal on a GY-HD100E (PAL), still in it's plastic... I do not plan to use the camera for shooting anything else than HD with it and capture in FinalCut Pro 6. I do not plan to use the firewire on it for anything else than capture direct in My G5... Now can there be any problems for using this cam here in Canada.. where all is NTSC around me..

AND, can I get the firmware update since I'm in Canada and have a European cam?

thanx for your fast answer

-Bruno

The HDV modes of the U and E models are identical, but the DV modes are specific to PAL (E) or NTSC (U).
The AC adapter can handle both 220/50 and 110/60 so no problems there.

You will run into problems getting any warranty coverage here in Canada, but the 1 year warranty is probably expired anyway.

Is it a HD100E or HD101E? In Europe the HD100E is a cheaper model than the HD101E because the HD100E cannot record inputs from firewire. This has something to do with a duty on devices that can record digital signals.
You may want to take this into consideration if you ever want to archive back to tape.

Thanx

Thanx a lot!!

I knew about the Firewire issue, wich is not a problem for me since I always
send my stuff for output in a service house...

It is a 100.. So bottom line if I shoot HDV, connect to my G5 via FireWire I should start capturing no problems.....

Those batteries make it worth it. You should get about 7+ hours out of each one.

Test for split-screen calibration before you buy. Point the camera at a flat surface and then stop down to almost complete darkness and watch how the image processors react.
Also run a JVC or Panasonic head cleaner BEFORE putting the first tape in the camera. I recommend JVC ProHD tape stock (white plastic) for best results.
