“I'm an American who is an art student in London UK. I recorded my wedding via my Canon Vixia HG20 in USA. This camera is NTSC format and does Standard and High Definition filming. I'd like to show my wedding recordings to my friends and classmates via DVD and projectors in Europe. As we all know, media for showing digital video in Europe is in PAL. So the difficulty of editing, burning and playing NTSC AVCHD video recordings in Europe makes me quite annoyed.”
