Re: Video8 PAL/NTSC
Thanks for the replies.
You see, what I want to do is digitising my old Video8 tapes. I haven't
got a working camcorder to output them to a PC video card.
The Sony DCR TRV480 camcorder does digital and analog. It can read
Video8/High8 tapes and firewire them to a PC.
Unfortunately PAL ones are hard to get but NTSC ones are plenty around.
I could imagine that Sony doesn't use chip sets that are specialised on
one standard. Ideally There could be a way to switch (code bridges/dip
switch/ROM change) an NTSC camcorder to PAL, and bingo I could digitise
my tapes. :-)
Someone working in the field would possibly know how.
