I would like to buy a JVC GY-HM700U ProHD Solid-State Camcorder in USA , can i shoot in PAL standard? Thank U!

PAL and NTSC are the most common worldwide standards for standard definition (SD) television.   The GY-HM700U does not record SD, so it is technically neither a PAL nor NTSC recorder.  However, many people associate PAL and NTSC with 25/50Hz and 30/60Hz formats used in HD.  The GY-HM700 will record in all of the worldwide HD formats including the so-called "PAL" formats (1920 x 1080/50i, 25p, 1440 x 1080/50i, 1280 x 720/50p, 25p) and the so-called "NTSC" formats (1920 x 1080/59.94i , 29.97p, 23.98p, 1440 x 1080/59.94i, 1280 x 720/59.94p, 29.97p, 23.98p).

The downconverted composite video output on the camera provides either a PAL (576i) or NTSC (480i) signal, as does the SDI output when switched to SD.
