Im pretty sure that there are two 570 models, the ws (NTSC) and the wsp (PAL). A friend shoot his latest film in LA and wants to shoot a scene in the UK but he is editing and authoring to NTSC as all his footage was captured in NTSC and has thus far been edited as such.

I really dont know my way around the 570wsp and I want to know if its possible to capture in NTSC with it. If so does anyone have any instructions for doing so?

Best

Hi,

Well, you'll either have the PAL model or the NTSC model; I'm not sure that there's any easy way of switching them between standards.

Do you know of any way to convincingly record in PAL (as it appears I have no option but to do so) and then transfer to NTSC to be edited alongside other footage recorded in NTSC.

Hi,

Yes there are tons of ways to do it, and it's better to shoot PAL then go to NTSC than the other way around. You can either find some software to do it on your desktop PC, or take it to a facilities house and pay them to do it. It doesn't tend to be an amazingly cheap option either way, especially if you want it done well.
