I bought a Sony digital camcorder TRV-17 at a good price from New York (famous B&H store). Unfortunately I realised to my annoyance, it is NTSC and I can't transfer to normal VHS. Is it still possible to transfer the footage for editing on a PC? Can I then make DVDs that will play in colour on UK players? Also when I record in 16:9 mode (showing black bars at top & bottom of LCD screen), the bars disappear when played back on any TV.... how do I stop this as I like the cinema-type effect?
