Apologies if this is an infantile question but can't figure out how to search for it. If an HD cam such as Sony HDR-HC1 was bought in the USA, could there be any compatibility problems using it in UK.

Well, the majority will be 60Hz only, for one thing :). The Z1 lets you switch between 50Hz and 60Hz, but I don't think any others do.

P4-3.06/2GB RAM/2500GB IDE/SATA. Avid Media Composer, Liquid Edition, Premiere 6, Lightwave, Vue 6, eyeon Fusion 5. DV and HDV editing/compositing.

The HC1 and the A1 are both region specific. So one bought in the USA will be NTSC for DV and Downconverted HDV as well as 60HZ.

Thanks, Chaps. Not really a goer is it? May have saved me an expensive mistake.
