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:

Strictly speaking PAL and NTSC are SD formats not HD.

However in HD you still have frame/field differences because PAL countries and cameras are usually 50hz and NTSC countries are usually 60hz.

Once the footage is captured it can be transcoded but the problem they may run into is that often 60hz cameras can't read the tapes from 50hz cameras.
