Sony F350, Shutter on or off for Pal

Oh yes the shutter question again, but this time it's the Sony F350.
I'm a Pal user and my questions are..... should the shutter be on or off?
Should I have it set to second or degree?
How come I can only get 1/60 and not 1/50 for Pal.
I thought that 1/60 was for NTSC and Pal was 1/50.

Need some advice on this please.

Thanks

If you're shooting interlaced then shutter off.
In progressive, On at half the frame rate (or better yet 180 degrees). If the camera doesn't have 1/50th then 1/60th will be OK - don't know why it wouldn't though.

The camera will only give you 1/60th as an option in interlace mode because when the shutter is off you are already at 1/50th. In progressive scan mode however the 1/50th option will be there.

The usual reason would be to allow you to shoot in 60hz countries without getting flicker.
