Wedding DVD to play in the USA

Hi all, I have a wedding to shoot on Monday for a girl who lives in America and she wants a DVD to take home with her to play over there. How do I convert this onto NTSC

I own a Z1 and I can just shoot the whole thing in 60i but my other camera is a DSR 250 and this is PAL only, what do I do, shoot it all in pal and convert it then or can it all be imported to a NTSC timeline?

My family in law lives in Korea, which also uses NTSC. When I bring a PAL DVD, the DVD player automatically converts it to NTSC. Not sure if all DVD players do that though.

I would not count on a DVD player in the US to be able to play PAL disks. Some can do it, but for the majority that's probably not true.

Paul: if you shoot PAL, you can convert the video to NTSC. How exactly that is done depends on what software you are using. The picture quality might suffer a tad bit from that conversion - not much, just a little bit - and you have to weigh this against the alternative of using only your Z1 as a single camera in NTSC shooting 60i.
