I think it comes from an historic reference of more than 30 years old, so since it gave a nice demarcation of which to go where, and E was perfect for Europe, it has stuck. Been there forever, all the way back to 3/4" and beyond.

Best,

Thanks to Barry and Jan for helping clear things up! Note, some manufacturers, like JVC and Sony, designate it as "u" for United States, "e" for Europe/PAL, etc.

Aha, so that's what the U is for.
I think the manufacturers should take a hint from the auto industry and computer software makers. Name the damn things. I can't keep the alphanumerics of the cameras I own straight, much less all the others.
It would be a lot more fun to say, "I'm thinking about buying that 2007 Oscelot."
"Oh yeah, well, I'm gonna hold out for the Wauxahatchee at NAB." "Wauxahatchee--hell, that baby's obsolete before it's even out; take a look at the Orangutan Orange!"
"Ah, the OO is nothing but vaporware; I'll stick with my tried and true Dyslexicon."
"I've got a Wexler."
"...Snob."

If you got it from B&H they sometimes designate packages with various letters at the end......but the P is definitely NTSC

I sent a note to B&H, hopefully they'll correct it soon.

I am sorry for the confusion. We're comparing B&H's internal skus to the manufacturer's product codes. I've let the web team know about this and hopefully they'll make things correspond.

I understand the "E" for Europe. "U" for USA makes sense. "N" for North America or NTSC is good too. But "P"? Where'd that come from?
