Once taking the video can I hook a NTSC camcorder to a PAL tv ( as in what is needed to do that ) Or would the best option be to burn to disk first and then put it into my DVD player. I am really keen on the JVC GZ-HD7

but its out of my price range at 1000, but on ebay they sell imports from Japan for 520 pounds, but I want to know what kind of trouble im getting into by purchasing a NTSC. Someone said, stick with your own format, i.e. go pal - but at those prices its everything I want.

If I do put it onto DVD and convert to PAL am I going to loose the HD, or some quality !

i would recommend setting the video mode on the tv and the cameracorder to PAL...there should be a setting on each one like the camera recorder has a video mode NTSC or PAL. and then leave the PAL setting on the tv. let me know how this works. thanks!

Regular DVD does not support HD format, so going that way is going to downgrade your quality.  You didn't mention what kind of TV you have - unless it is an HDTV, you will not be able to see the full quality of this camcorder, no matter how you connect it.
