LX7 - PAL or NTSC?
Oct 28, 2012

I live in Japan, and here Panasonic cripple the camera to have Japanese menus only.  That and the prices here are around the US$700 mark.

So I'm looking online.  The best deals seem to be from Hong Kong or the US.  Some listings don't mention the video format, others highlight "PAL version".

Given that I don't have a TV and only use video on my computer, does it actually make any difference which version I buy?

I recall many years ago people used to explain that NTSC video tended to have a "softer" look which is why American videos always seemed to have been shot throgh a soft focus filter, compared to British videos.  But 20 years later is that argument still valid?

Thanks for any explanation.
