Hello all!
I'm new to this website and am excited to start participating in discussions. I have posted this in a few different places not knowing which would be the best place for it. I thought this may be a good place since this is about film. (Sorry for the length and thank you).

I am going to be working on a project soon and want to shoot super 16mm. I have been looking at cameras online to buy and have come across some decently priced Aaton XTRs from various countries outside the U.S. My concern is that some sellers have mentioned that they are PAL cameras. Can anyone tell me if this will matter when shooting the film? I have heard mixed opinions about it just referring to frame, rate in which case I can adjust the camera's frame rate. Others have told me that I will constantly have flicker due to electricity in the US. Will I be able to use the camera or should I look for something else?

Sorry like I said I'm new to the forum and the common practices weren't really spelled out.
