filming NTSC in Pal Land ?

Hi, i have a question, i am filming wedding for a Japanese client , Now we are in Pal land. Australia, they get married here, but they have asked the Footage to be recorded in NTSC. So i have done one, 720/60P shutter off, but i am getting a issue with the lights in the church, its like a flickering, So should the shutter be on ? and is there a plugin for FCP that may help clean the footage up a bit. :-(

The flicker is from shooting 60fps under 50Hz lighting. Since you can't change the lighting I would shoot in 50p and convert it in post.

Or shoot with flicker reduction on and set it to 60Hz and the shutter at 1/50. Try 1080 at 30p shooting. Look for the options under "Others" when set to PAL.

Try setting the shutter to 1/100th - that should fix the flickering.

There is a flicker reduction setting in the EX for just such circumstances but I forget off hand where it is in the menu. I'd test it first though.

Re: filming NTSC in Pal Land ?

Do what Andy says and set your shutter to 1/100th.
This should give you far better results than the 'flicker reduction' setting.
If shooting at 1080/30 or 1080/24, you could also set your shutter to 1/50th. (so you don't lose as much light)
I often shoot with those settings when travelling - with good results.
