Pal shooting or convert ??


I am in the US, and wondering if this camera has the ability to shoot in PAL at all ??

If not what recomendation to shoot for a European client, and then hand the footage to them to take back to Europe and edit ?? Leave it to their editor to convert the footage in Post.. ??

Thanks in advance ..

The USA model cannot shoot in 50Hz or PAL. The only option would be to have their editor convert it in post. For that, you're best off using either 60i/60p or 24p. Don't shoot 30p, as that is the worst/most difficult to convert to PAL or 50Hz.
