Hallo, I live in Italy and I received as a gift one camcorder SONY HDR-HC7 (mini DV, not with hard disk) with PAL system, produced in USA. I never opened it because I know that it records in PAL but I cannot author any DVD with the movies receordered because it won't be compatible with European DVD players. At least I can transfer my movies onto my PC and with a software I can play them on the PC monitor.
This camcorder can play both PAL and NTSC, but it records only NTSC.
I'm selling it through eBay because I cannot use it; if you want it, please contact me by e-mail or see eBay SONY HDR-HC7 from Italy.
By the way, do you know anyone who could be interested in it? I'm trying to sell it since months but no one wants it; it's new, I sell also some accessories as a gift, without any shipping cost.
I am interested in buying A Sony full HD HDD camcorder (Sony HDR-SR10E w/ 40 GB Hard drive). I live and work in the states, but travel to Europe often where everything is PAL. For some reason, I can't find reviews or articles telling me if this camera would be fully functional in PAL countries. By this I mean:
1) It will be able to upload footage onto computers and burn DVD's for PAL TV's.
2) It will work on HD TV's in Europe, when hooked up directly.
Any advice or additional information I might be missing would be appreciated.
