Hi

I'm shooting some doco footage for Japanese TV this week and was wondering what the standard framerate for japanese TV was? (Shooting 16mm). What would be the prefered aspect ratio? Not getting much info from the producer so i'm just trying to get ahead...

Many thanks

Hello,
As I ve seen from my book that has the International video and electrical standards I ve found this weird thing...JAPAN: NTSC 50/60 110/220 !!
Wich maybe means that some have 220 and some 110.Also the frequency is 50 and 60!
I hope that someone can explain this to me also.!

Japan uses NTSC-J. It's plain jane NTSC but with the black level/setup set to 0 ire rather than our 7.5 ire.

Wikipedia link for NTSC

Japans electric power is not the same in Japan. Half of the iseland uses 110V 60 and the other half uses 220V 50, still everywhere in japan ntsc is used.
