shooting PAL mode

I have a shoot coming up for a client from Australia. I will be renting an F350 and shooting in 1080i50@35mbs mode.

I have a question about lighting.

When ever I shoot with an NTSC camera overseas I always set the shutter to 100 speed to eliminate any flickering from 220 lights.

The assignment I am shooting will be interviews that will need to be well lit. Will I have a problem with shooting PAL with 120 AC lighting like you can with NTSC cameras and 220 lighting?

Just trying to think through all the possible problems that may arise on this shoot.

If I am offbase just let me know!!!!!

Thanks,

Dan Weber

You should be able to put the camera into 1/60th shutter as long as you are shooting interlaced.

Simon,

Thanks!!! That's what I thought I would have to do, but I wanted to check just to be safe. I never want to assume something going into a shoot.
