I will be going to the US in the next few weeks. I have seen the sony HDR-SR5 advertised there for 380 pounds (750 dollars). I chose this model as a replacement for my sanyo VPC HD1 I bought last year. I tend to take good videos requiring little editing, drop the files onto my HTPC for storage and playback. My question is 1. the US model is advertised as NTSC- surely this is for the SD mode which I will not be using? 2 Is there any issues with 1080i50 or 60, is this a problem if I buy it there?- I am totally ignorant/confused about this. 3. What do other owners of the said model feel about focussing, lowlight performance and PQ of this cam? The price is nearly 200 pounds cheaper and I am sorely tempted!! Any help will be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
