Why is it that most cameras and camcorders i read the spec about (especially stills camera that can record movies) seem to mostly use 60i or 30p frame rates, geard up for the usa and other NTSC countries. I live in the UK and it seems that 50i or 25p frame rate cameras are not as readily available for certain models, this mostly applies to still cameras that can record HD video. I am looking for a Bridge camera that can record full HD video and the Fuji HS10 looks very appealing but i'm put off with it not using European 25p or 50i frame rate. Many would argue, saying it dosen't matter with HD video as UK tv's can display 30p/60i but i'm more concerned when it comes down to editing my existing videos which are 50i with the 60i frame rate, i'm sure i would get error messages, and what about down converting to DVD to play on a UK PAL tv? would this work with a 60i or 30p camera? I would have posted this in the Stills camera forum, but i feel it's more understood here, even though it's a stills camera with HD video that i wan't to buy. I hope to get some usefull replies!
