I live in the states and own a Sony VX2000E... You'll have NO problems editing on a computer. Currently my FireWire port is down and I've resorted to Analog for some tests on a new production. Remember capturing Analog isn't capturing "true" analog, it s capturing digitized FRAMES you really don't have to deal with feilds even. I think I'm spelling analog wrong... oh well it's late! Anyways remember there are no such things as European 1's and 0's so PAL away! You can't review footage on a NTSC TV and thats about it.
