    I am going on holiday to the states and like most things DV tapes are cheaper over there.

    Will the NTSC tapes from over there work on my PAL camcorder i.e allow me to do everything a PAL tape from here would?

    Are PAL tapes available there?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    DV Tapes have no format until you actually put something on them! If you are using a PAL camcorder the recording on the tape will be in the PAL format.

    Mr Xeonic is correct.

    The tapes are exactly the same.

    I've purchased and used some in the US myself no problem.
