I know this probably isn't the right list -- so kill me if I'm wrong for
posting here .. I just have a simple question.

Will videocasettes recorded on the NTSC standard function in
VCR's using the PAL system? Is the difference in the electronics of the
VCR or is it within the broadcast format?

I need to know this because I am travelling to Sweden this August
as an exchange student and I plan to purchase a camcorder.....


Thanks,
Peter T. Bense

BTW, can you make any suggestions of products to buy / stay away from
when I purchase one? Prefferable video format? VHS? VHS-C? 8 MM?
