Ok I have a weird one, wasnt sure where to post it...

I shoot content for an american company on my Sony Z1E HD camera... they want me to send them the original HD Mini DV's instead of capturing the video at this end...

They dont want to spend a fortune and buy a Z1E HD camera... they want to know what would be a good option for them to buy camera wise to process the video, capturing it from the camera onto their computers... without losing quality ???

They are looking at the Sony HDR-HC3e should this work for them ?

Also we shot everything in PAL, and they obviously use NTSC... should this make a difference ? Should they still capture/render in PAL or NTSC ? Will this effect the quality of the video ?

Sorry to sound like such a newb... but I am lol :lol:

I'd think that they don't need a camera for that. Look for a mini-DV player, it should be a lot less money. PAL to NTSC conversion they'll need to do in software. It would be better in the future to avoid that by shooting NTSC for them.
