Default U.S Cameras - Will they be compatiable in Australia

I am about to come and visit the U.S and was thinking of buying my new digital kit over there as the pricing seems top be so much more competitive.

Will the cameras and sofware/leads/cable all be compatible back home in Australia.

The reason i ask is that i know Sony Playstations and there games dont work.

Thanks Tim

Many newer cameras have both NTSC and PAL output. The big problem is if the camera has a proprietary battery is the charger that comes with the camera will be US power specs (wouldn't be a big deal if the camera uses AAs instead).

The big issue I see is warranty...you won't have any support outside the US (I know this issue well just living north of the US border and if I go cross-border shopping).

Camera is fine, just the chargers use a different plug. i bought mine in the US because the price in OZ is ludicrous.

So did you just use a socket converter, or did you buy a new transformer/lead from the camera company when you got back?

There is a chance all the photos will be upside down.
