Guess lots of you would know this:
Can I replay a Video8 tape that's been recorded on a PAL Camcorder on a
NTSC camcorder?
I have not too much a clue about what's going on inside these machines.

Thanks!

Tony

Not typically.  There may be a dual standard machine around somewhere,
but I've never seen one.

Hi tony,
No the best bet is buy a NTSC camcorder from USA , but to record your tapes,
you will also need a Video converter to change NTSC to PAL.
Could start getting very expensive

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.

Thanks

Tony
