Question about Hitachi M2 Digital Camera
PAL and NTSC are different. PAL is 25 fps, NTSC is 30 fps. So there is no way they can be compatible when you make it digital. There is also the resolution difference. NTSC has considerable fewer lines than PAL. MPEG is a better format, but you still have the frames-per-second diff. An MPEG camera :) My JVC S-VHS video will play both NTSC and PAL. But, if I want to view NTSC, I must be able to adjust the sync rate on my TV to make it do 60Hz. I HAVE 4 UNITS OF JVC SR-S365U SVHS MACHINES. THESE MACHINES ARE ALL NTSC AND I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE SYSTEMS INTO PAL... IS IT POSSIBLE? HOW CAN I DO IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO USE THESE MACHINES. I AM BASED IN KENYA AND WE USE PAL SYSTEM HERE IN KENYA? HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME??
There is only two ways I can think of depends on how you are wishing to use them
One way would be to use conversion software and the other would be to use a Converter and another converter link.
Sorry but I think your out of luck unless I'm seriously mistaken, Not possible is the answer. Below is general info on PAL / NTSC
Discs without codes will play on any player in any country but as the player will only output the video format of the disc, that disc may not be viewable on the television. For example, in the USA, the video format is NTSC and most televisions are NTSC only. If you were to try and play a PAL DVD from Europe on your newly programmed Region Free DVD player, it would also output a PAL video signal which the television could not show as NTSC and PAL are totally incompatible with each other.
Converting NTSC to PAL When converting from NTSC to PAL, two things need to be accomplished. 480 lines of resolution have to be upconverted to 576 lines of resolution, and 30 images per second have to be downconverted to 25 images per second.
The resolution upconversion does not actually add any real picture information to the image, as you cannot create real picture information where none existed before. It does, however, make the picture viewable on a PAL display, and often results in a superficially better-looking image. The frame rate conversion actually results in a loss of temporal resolution, as PAL has a lower frame rate than NTSC. Converting PAL to NTSC The converse situation applies to PAL to NTSC conversions. 576 lines of resolution are downconverted to 480 lines of resolution, and frames need to be inserted to go from the 25 frames per second of PAL to the 30 frames per second of NTSC. Once again, the resultant image is of less actual resolution than the original image, as information is discarded spatially and made up temporally.

Yes system conversion is you need just change the crystals! buy a palsecam crystal then replace the old crystal.
