Video output settings on EOS kiss X4 / EOS 550D
Aug 4, 2010

Hi

I want to buy an EOS 550D or Kiss x4 and have been told that the two models have different movie modes.

I'm told that the Kiss X4 model is made for the Japanese market and therefore ships with the video format fixed to NTSC used in that country while the EOS 550D is made for the European and Australian market and ships with fixed PAL setting format used in Europe and Australia.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue and let me know if the cameras do ship with different video formats preset and/or – most importantly – if and how these formats are changeable within the camera's settings menu (specificly, can the Kiss X4 be set to PAL output)?

Are there any (other) differences between the models except a limited choice of languages available in the Kiss X4 compared to the 550D?

Many thanks in advance for you help.

Ciwi
