Filming in NTSC land, editing in PAL land
 
I might be going to US to shoot some video at a venue and don't want to travel with tons of equipment.

1a. Will the HDV footage taken by a NTSC A1 be coded as NTSC on tape or is it first encoded at playback/capture to one of the "standards" (NTSC/PAL).

1b. If NTSC encoded "on site" - what format would be best to use (60i or 24F) to bring back to PAL land and capture/edit? In PAL land we have 50i/25F and it's here I'm going to edit it. Any problems to consider. The scene is not sport/moves around - a pianist that sits still, kind of...

1c. Will I need to capture the NTSC footage on site with the NTSC gear to my laptop (as m2t) - or can I capture on my PAL A1 back home again?

2. What are the possibilities of renting several A1s in Philadelphia? Is this model well-known at rental shops?

3. What would one typical search for (internet?) to get good, knowledge, personell with either lights and/or cameras for a good quality recording session. I would need jibs(?), possibly a "crane"(?) and some other stuff. Naturally EX, A1 and other stuff would not hurt to have as option but it does not need to be high-pro stuff like F355 for that matter. A1/FX1-level etc. will go a long way.

4. Would using PAL units to record indoors in US cause problem? Somebody posted that shutterspeeds should be multiple of power freq.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can rent a NTSC XHA1 than has been upgraded with pal shooting functions.
