Video frame rates and NTSC vs PAL - 550D
Jun 23, 2010

Is this assumption correct?

If I record video with the camera set to NTSC it will record at 30 / 60 fps depending on the selected resolution.

If I play back from the camera direct to an NTSC TV it will play back correctly.

However, if I travel to the UK and plug it into a PAL TV, I need to change the camera output to PAL.

Will the camera then try to play back the video at 25 / 50 fps? i.e. 20% too slow. Or will it play back at the recorded frame rate and let the TV sort out how it is displayed?

Of course if I run it through editing software, I can do almost anything with the output. It is just direct output to TV I was thinking about.
