      I was thinking about buying a Sony NX5 in the US, but the thing is I’m living in Sweden. Would it cause me a lot of problems since we have PAL here?

      yea. you won’t be able to watch your finished video on anything. You may be able to edit since a lot of programs can edit PAL and NTSC, but you won’t be able to view your video on an external monitor unless you have an NTSC monitor.

      Where are you looking to order from? That sounds fishy…you shouldn’t be charged $3000 more just to get PAL.

      You should be able to edit the NTSC (30/60 frames) into PAL (25/50) without a notable difference. Since Sony most likely has less volume in Europe, they like slapping the name “PAL” on, but I’ve never heard of someone jacking the price up by $3,000 for probably just a slight change in firmware.
