Shooting PAL with a Z1, external monitor question

I'm using a Z1 tomorrow to shoot some PAL footage for a client. Can anyone tell me if I'll be able to use my external NTSC monitor while shooting or will I need to get a PAL monitor?

Best to get/hire a PAL monitor for your client.

The Z1 cannot transcode between PAL and NTSC in realtime, so you will need a monitor which can handle the same format you're recording in.

Thanks all. Realized that my monitor does all formats (thanks Sony!) so no worries.
