Choosing NTSC or PAL Recording Standard on a GoPro

NTSC and PAL are the recording standards when recording video that you want to be familiar with.  Before you start recording, you need to choose which format you'll want to use.  You might be shooting for a client in Europe in which case you will want PAL.  If your video will be North America based, then you want NTSC.  In this course you’ll see a color coded map which shows regions that pertain to both NTSC and PAL.  I will demo how to select the standard by going into the settings menu in the GoPro.
