I need to buy 2x Sony EX3 PAL cameras in Tokyo, any ideas? I also need to get memory cards, mics, batteries, tripods and camera bags. Is it easy to get PAL versions of this camera in Japan?

Stu, both the EX1 and EX3 are PAL/NTSC independent - they shoot both formats

Isn't Japan an NTSC/60Hz country, though? So If you're shooting PAL (25P) I'd recommend making sure your EX shutter is @ 1/60th to avoid flicker.

Edit: Some searching, and actually Japan, according to this webpage is a 50/60 country... Depending on where, Tokyo being a 50 Hz area.

I've shot quite a bit of (interlaced) PAL video in 60Hz countries. Typically, a very small amount of flicker is just about visible with discharge lights, but it's not shot-wreckingly bad if you do happen to get it wrong.

Yes Tokyo is 50hz, but if you are going down to Kyoto,or Osaka it becomes 60hz..but the TV system is NTSC all over Japan.

You probably wont get an English manual,but I think you can down load one.
