Anyone with a PAL - DV camera? : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

A colleague of mine is looking for a PAL - DV camera. He is shooting a low-budget feature film, which has a script, basic funding, and many other elements in place. The reason he wants a PAL camera, is that it works significantly better in the DV to 35mm film conversion process. If anyone is interested, I'll put you in touch with the producer / director, James Valentine, who is based in Los Angeles.

I own a Sony VX2000E and I must say it's awesome. I live in the US and so far I've had No problems with Editing and burning to DVD's. Format-Shmormate, Pal, NTSC, dosn't matter when it's digital, there is no such thing as European 1's and 0's. Just remember that it dosn't matter if you own a PAL anything or a Sony CineAlta 24p, if you don't light for film your not going to get the look you want.
