NTSC or PAL?

PostFri Feb 16, 2018 11:30 pm

I've consulted the URSA Mini Pro manual twice now and still I am not sure the full extent of this choice.

Is it simply based off of the frequency of the electrical current of your region? If this is the case I live in Ireland, which one should I select?

This setting just relates to how our flicker free shutter speeds / angles are calculated.
Ireland's power frequency is 50hz so you should select that.

Then depending on what your frame rate is set to there will be flicker free shutter values available at the bottom when you click to adjust your shutter in the heads up display.
