Question about Panasonic AG-185 Camcorder

1 Answer

Urgent - pal ntsc

I am currently in singapore and am on my way to Egypt for 4 weeks and am looking at buying a panasonic digital camcorder NV-GS55 to record my trip. The question though is that it is a PAL system and i live in Canada (NTSC). i have a Hitachi 53inch rear projection tv that i paid 3500 for about 2 years ago and am not sure if it is PAL compatible. i don't intend to watch much on it anyways and will probably watch most of it on my computer. Am i setting myself up for a big headache or will i be able to watch any of the movies on my pc? i leave singapore in two days and i'd love to have a video camera if there is an easy way.

Re: urgent - pal ntsc

Pal and NTSC are different formats. If you live in Canada, you?re TV most likely supports NTSC and not PAL. If you bought your TV and it said it is multisystem, so you won?t have problems with if, but i am almost sure this is not you case. If you want it for your PC, you will need to get a program to change your videos from PAL to NTSC. What I would recommend you to do is to buy a miltisystem camera; the format transformation isn't the easiest way. Daniel

Hi, i am having panasonic nv gs-90 mini dv camcorder and the problem is how to copy files from tape to my pc. what is the procedure and which cables i need to have, hope you will reply soon


You need a firewire cable and a firewire card on your computer if it doesn't already have a firewire connector.

Then you'll need a capture software if you don't have windows movie maker.

Hope you can start making movies soon! :)

I have a panasonic NV-GS55 digital video camera,. My problem is,I cannot able to playback the videos that I had recorded. Please help...



This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette


Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!

How can i change my panasonic nv-gs230 mini dv


Best
1. Copy the video to your computer with WinDV. No "capturing" involved. The video resolution and PAL/NTSC format will be the same as the source.
2. Then convert to whatever format you like.


You could also use something that copy and converts the video directly from the DV, like convert to dvd with Ulead DVD Workshop.
DV is a fixed standard and comes in 50Hz and 60Hz versions.

50Hz ("PAL" 625/50) 720x576, 25fps interlace (aka 576i)
4:2:0 components, 25Mb/s Video Rate
LPCM audio 2ch 16bit 48KHz or 4ch 12bit 32kHz

60Hz ("NTSC" 525/60) 720x480, 29.97fps interlace (aka 480i)
4:1:1 components, 25Mb/s Video Rate
LPCM audio 2ch 16bit 48KHz or 4ch 12bit 32kHz


Meaning, You cannot change the camera. It is either a pal camera or a ntsc camera. Othewise you will have to by a firmware update from the manufacture's website.

Convert NTSC VHS video tapes to DVD PAL


If you do not have an adaptor to play the tapes to a standard VHS viseo player, you can use the camera as the player by connecting the AV out to a DVD recorder. There are hundreds of models in the market, and do not worry if it is NTSC or PAL because 99% of DVD recorder accepts both.
