Rob,

PAL-M is only used for broadcasting at the TV stations, there's no  
post-production in PAL-M because although it is called "PAL"-M it's a  
525 lines 29,97 fps system, so it's very close to NTSC, that's why all  
SD post-production is made in NTSC systems. In fact PAL-M is a  
different version of NTSC.

There should be no problem with "NTSC" HDCam, if by that you mean  
59,94 or 23,98 framerates.

I know you understand portuguese so I'm sending you a link that  
explains how PAL-M works:
