When transferring movies to the computer, the format is a digital format (mjpg), and will play on the computer using QuickTime. If you want to play your movies directly from the camera to a television, you will need to select either NTSC or PAL in the menu system on the camera. Go to this link and type "ntsc or pal movie" in the search window in the center of the screen and click on the Search button. Select the first answer (When connected to a television. . .) and you will find instructions on how to do this.

I go dvx 100a ntsc and i just want to know its posible to changed to pal ????


You can not change a camera from NTSC to PAL. The systems are completely different and there is no way anyone can do it even the manufacturers would not bother with that.

What you can do however is to take your picture using NTSC then you get to an editing suite like Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. If you upload or capture your NTSC video in the PAL environment of Premiere Pro then you will have that converted automatically but there will be changes to be made by adjusting picture size and so on. This I found out can be done with very little picture quality loss. Though with some cameras sound syncing can be something you might have to work on.

I have been trying to transfer my video from my Lumix DMC-ZS7 to my pc. Every time I get the same message: Removed from the items to be acquired because AVCHD/AVCHD Lite videos with different TV...


Hello, First of all, which region do you live in? Basicaly, PAL and NTSC are standards for TVs that differ depending on the region of the world. The American continent is NTSC, Europe is PAL, and i'm not quite sure about the specifics of every region, but this information should be easy to obtain. You can go in the config section of your camera and switch the video settings to PAL or NTSC, depending on which you need.
As for your videos, which method are you using to copy your files to your computer? I've got this same camera and the simplest way (as for any camera) is to insert the SD card in your laptop and copy-paste the files where you want them to be. If you don't have a SD card slot, you can get your hands on a USB adapter, or simply try using the provided camera to USB cable and copy the files from the same method, if it allows you to access your files directly.
I hope it helps! Have a nice day!

Hi. I was mis-sold over the internet the DMC ZS3 camera instead of the TZ7 and now i cant video in PAL HD as the ZS3 is NTSC and my computer cant recognise the video footage when I try to download it from...


You might be able to flash over the ZS3 to TZ7, but that would be an expensive gamble.Nor would I trust anyone other than Panasonic to tell me what I could or couldn't do as far as this question is concerned - unless I was interested in taking the risk.

The TZ7 limits the length of the video that can be recorded to something on the order of 3 or 4 minutes - whereas the ZS3 is limited only by the size of the SDHC card. I believe it had to due with the tax collect for a "video camera" as opposed to the still camera that can record "clips" instead of movies. Tha, and of course the NTSC / PAL differences and who knows whatelese that isn't mentioned (but I suspect very little else actually).

Contact Panasonic Consumer Product Support for the best answer you can hope for. I hope this helped - and good luck!

Can't seem to transfer footage from my SONY HDR SR10 to my imac


I don't know if you would call this a solution but I do know that some computers or programs will not except certain cameras. For instance I have a Sony computer and the editing program I have is Adobe Premier which will not except footage from my JVC camera but will except the footage through my Canon camera. I think the Eggheads that design these programs just like to screw with people.

TRANSFERRING VIDEO FOOTAGE TO COMPUTER


Hello,
you can access via USB only SD card on your camcoder.
The only way to transfer from the tape is via Firewire (IEE 1394) . You should have this port on your PC or laptop, if not you can buy external firewire card .

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera


Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
For more information, see HD and Broadcast Formats and the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express User Manual, available under the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express Help menu

Dimage E40 TV picture stability


In black and white? If there is a red and yellow, white and yellow, or red white and yellow on the tv end make sure the colors are matched correctly. Try on channel 3. Try on another tv. Is the camera from a foreign country? (Might be PAL, not NTSC.) If so, there should region menu in the camera to change this. For video, you have to shoot it in the mode of the TV you want to watch it on. North American TV's are NTSC, so shoot with the camera in that mode. If you shoot in PAL mode, a north american TV will show a black and white rolling picture. Just about everywhere else in the world is some version of PAL.
