Re: FZ200 in UK - PAL or NTSC, does it matter?

PAL vs. NTSC was a big deal in the analog world and, unfortunately, in the digital world they are still somewhat different animals that could affect your reselling the FZ200.  The video frame rates differ (30/60/120/240 for NTSC, 25/50/100/200 for PAL), so there's the possibility that the NTSC camera or video may not play back properly on a PAL TV.

On the plus side, the NTSC camera will not have the 30 minute video limitation that the European models have.
