NTSC vs PAL

Hi fellow GoProers

 

I am new to this awesome device (Hero 7 Black) but can people advise on whether I should be using PAL or NTSC as my default setting? NTSC gives me the higher frame rate but PAL gives more lines so should have more lines available so a greater amount of information is captured (clearer footage ?) 🤔🤔

 

Many thanks

Re: NTSC vs PAL

It really depends on your region and the frequency of electricity in your area.
This article does a good job of explaining it in detail http://urbanvideo.ca/avoid-video-flicker
