Hi-
The Z1 allows the user to record in NTSC 30fps and PAL 25fps. Unfortunately, it can't record in 24p. Would it be possible to film in 25fps instead and produce it for a NTSC-TV audience? I tried playing back 25fps footage from the camcorder to the TV, producing only a very flickery picture. Could this be fixed in post, or should I just convert it to 24p later on?

Thanks!
Mike

Yes -- you can shoot PAL, edit at 25fps, de-interlace it and then slow it to 24p (with audio pitch correction) to make a 24p DVD for an NTSC audience. I've done this a thousand times, and it works perfectly. The footage will play back about 4% slower, but the effect is not noticeable as long as the audio is pitch corrected.

Of course, if you're shooting MOS, you don't have to worry about audio. Just do all your post at 24p.

use the interpret footage function in your post software and tell it the 25fps file is 24. simple as that. audio can be a problem though. the best option is probably still to just shoot, edit and post in pal, then convert the final product.
