Having problems with your Hitachi M2 Digital Camera ?

NTSC to PAL question


\015 PAL and NTSC are different. PAL is 25 fps, NTSC is 30 fps. So there is \015\012 no way they can be compatible when you make it digital. There is also \015\012 the resolution difference. NTSC has considerable fewer lines than PAL. \015\012 \015\012MPEG is a better format, but you still have the frames-per-second diff. \015\012 \015\012An MPEG camera :) \015\012 \015\012My JVC S-VHS video will play both NTSC and PAL. But, if I want to view \015\012 NTSC, I must be able to adjust the sync rate on my TV to make it do \015\012 60Hz.\015\012I HAVE 4 UNITS OF JVC SR-S365U SVHS MACHINES. THESE MACHINES ARE ALL NTSC AND I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE SYSTEMS INTO PAL... IS IT POSSIBLE? HOW CAN I DO IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO USE THESE MACHINES. I AM BASED IN KENYA AND WE USE PAL SYSTEM HERE IN KENYA? HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME??\015

There is only two ways I can think of depends on how you are wishing to use them
\015\012
\015\012One way would be to use conversion software and the other would be to use a Converter and another converter link.

\015\012Sorry but I think your out of luck unless I'm seriously mistaken, Not possible is the answer. Below is general info on PAL / NTSC
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Discs without codes will play on any player in any country but as the player will only output the video format of the disc, that disc may not be viewable on the television. For example, in the USA, the video format is NTSC and most televisions are NTSC only. If you were to try and play a PAL DVD from Europe on your newly programmed Region Free DVD player, it would also output a PAL video signal which the television could not show as NTSC and PAL are totally incompatible with each other.
\015\012Converting NTSC to PAL\015\012 When converting from NTSC to PAL, two things need to be accomplished. 480 lines of resolution have to be upconverted to 576 lines of resolution, and 30 images per second have to be downconverted to 25 images per second.
\015\012 The resolution upconversion does not actually add any real picture information to the image, as you cannot create real picture information where none existed before. It does, however, make the picture viewable on a PAL display, and often results in a superficially better-looking image. \015\012 The frame rate conversion actually results in a loss of temporal resolution, as PAL has a lower frame rate than NTSC. \015\012Converting PAL to NTSC\015\012 The converse situation applies to PAL to NTSC conversions. 576 lines of resolution are downconverted to 480 lines of resolution, and frames need to be inserted to go from the 25 frames per second of PAL to the 30 frames per second of NTSC. Once again, the resultant image is of less actual resolution than the original image, as information is discarded spatially and made up temporally.
Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Why don't you just get an NTSC to PAL concverter (like this) that converts the signal to PAL. They are not expensive and doesn't require any modification of you machines.

I purchased a Panasonic D-snap sv-av100 camcorder in the United States. It records fine, but when I try to copy film on to my Panasonic DVD recorder (I live in Austria, so it is PAL format) I just get a rolling black and white picture. Is this to do with NTSC and PAL compatability and if so, what can I do to get the colour picture I desire. Many thanks in advance. Jerry Haylins.

I paid my $6 and got advice from a guru of yours on this question, and it didn't work. The question was: How to choose the metering when the shooting menu skips that item when advanced through the options. I was told to change the autofocus to the default full picture, and that did not work, nor did trying all the other autofocus options.


From what I understand, metering is automatic when used in any auto focus setting, which means it would be grayed out in the menu options. Not knowing what make and model camera you're using, I can't say much more than that. Look into your manual ... Digital Cameras
