Video frame rates and NTSC vs PAL - 550D
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.
All modern PAL tvs will accept NTSC input. So just play back NTSC, don't change to PAL.

On my PAL Samsung LED TV I played all combination (standards and frame rate) with no problem at all.
But, may not be the same on NTSC TV set,
