Question about Sony a57 - NTSC/PAL compatibility issue
Jan 13, 2013

Hi Everyone,

I live in Australia and I just bought a Sony a57 from DWI's Australian website (http://www.dwidigitalcameras.com.au/astore/Sony-Alpha-A57-Kit-18-135mm-Lens-Digital-SLR-Cameras.aspx#). They ship from Hong Kong but this is their Australian website. So I am a bit surprised that they have sent me a camera that shoots video at 60fps  or 24fps. Australia has PAL not NTSC and the local power supply is 50hz. So I reckon they should have sent me the version of the a57 that shoots 50fps or 25fps.

Can anyone tell me whether I am correct in assuming that I will get juddery playback on my TV with these frame rates?

Cheers for any helpful comments on this.
