You may sometimes get videos shot with NTSC camcorder from your friend in US, or purchase NTSC camcorder when you travel to US as the listing price in US is less than that in Europe. However, the NTSC signal does not work for PAL HDTV and DVD Player. For example, you may find the 1080/60p MTS videos shot with Panasonic TM700K in US is incompatible with PAL TV in Europe for PAL.
To get things work, you can convert NTSC videos to PAL MPEG with Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter, which can convert 1080/60p NTSC to 1080/25p PAL for playback on PAL HDTV, and make it easy to convert NTSC video to PAL .mpg for burning to DVD.
