The model i have which is a panasonic DMR-E50 can record on dvd or passthrough ntsc, so yes.Works great on horizontal jitter.
The only problem is if you have commercial tapes you'll need a macrovision remover like grex

What are you trying to accomplish?
I have a Panasonic CVHS tape from early 90's. It was recorded in black and white LP mode. I think the camcorder didn't set properly so the video is super shaky and it needs to be stabilize. Under the VHS mark on the tape it says (PAL SECAM). My vcr is multi system(not world wide) but it doesn't specify the type of the tape, so I am not sure whether it's PAL or SECAM.

Can the Panasonic nv fs200 (or other suggested PAL vcrs) stabilize the video for me?

On the front of the Panasonic nv fs200 it says MESECAM. Does it mean, it plays MESECAM?

I have NV HS 950, FS 88, NV HS 900 and NV HS 1000. NV HS 950 is best.

As alluded to in another thread, there's a typo here. It's an EU model. There's also the one tagged EK but I assume there is no functional difference between them...

I found a JVC HR-S8007UM for sale so I asked the seller what are its supported standards, and he said it has an option menu to select either NTSC or PAL-M. It makes sense because its being sold in Brazil. I don't have too much evidence beyond this seller's word, but maybe this is enough to update the UM "Key to characters" for the JVC models on page 2.

I also found a JVC HR-J4020UB for sale, and it seems to support the same formats: NTSC and PAL-M (also marketed for Brazil, since I found a PT-BR manual for it); this unit has SQPB (Super Quasi-Play Back), meaning that it can play S-VHS tapes with a VHS output quality but cannot record S-VHS tapes itself. So there's also this new UB suffix to investigate.

In short: JVC's UM/UB = (in theory) Brazilian model, NTSC and PAL-M.

And for the non-S-VHS non-SQPB units, I own a JVC HR-J646M which also supports NTSC, PAL-M and since I own it and use it regularly (unlike the others I cited above), I can confirm it has an internal NTSC->PAL-M converter, to also be able to play NTSC tapes on PAL-M screens.

Just thought I'd share my findings on this obscure side of video standards and VCR models because it's really hard to find this info on the Internet due to its niche market. Perhaps this might help a fellow Brazilian trying to google for this kind of stuff. Wish I could help other South American fellows too with the PAL-N system, but it seems to be even more obscure than PAL-M, and I basically gave up trying to find info on it. Maybe their domestic units are suffixed with N or similar, that is if good units were ever produced for this standard...

Tapes produced in PAL-N VCRs should play in any standard PAL deck as the on-tape format is the same. The only difference was the broadcast standard (basically 50Hz PAL over a 6Mhz channel instead of 8Mhz). PAL-M tapes are likely not compatible with anything but PAL-M and multisystem VCRs. At least they'll play in black and white on NTSC decks though.

You might want to know, that the Panasonic DMR-ES35V is also an exellent DVD/VHS combo, which also gives a perfect stable video signal from a VHS tape for capturing, I use a Intensity Shuttle, from BlackMagic Design, which only accepts a stable video signal, PAL or NTSC, interlaced or progresive.
This Panasonic recorder has all analog output connections: Component, Composite, and S-video, has also a DV/iLink/Firewire input.
For use of the Component output, it needs to be set to progresive (YUV) other options/settings that that refer to RGB, need to be switched off, to be able to set the progresive mode of the component output.
This recorder is said to be able to record a resolution of 500 lines.....

As far as I can find the only S-VHS/TBC deck with 625/525 engine that plays natively any PAL/NTSC/MESCAM with no conversion is the JVC HR-S7600AM, Anyone owns other model with such features?

Maybe a bit late to mention, but I noticed talk about the JVC HR S8500 when digging through this thread. It was suggested it would be like having edit mode on constantly due to not having the picture modes.

As I have the PAL version of it I want to note that it does have some image processing processing similar to them when not in edit mode. If edit is set to on it seems to disable pretty much any processing other than whatever the TBC/DNR function does. So it's similar, but essentially only allows on/off rather than having it more configurable.

No, never late. I like hearing stuff like this.

It sounds as if the 8500 behaves the same as the 7500 and 9500. And those are fine. I was somewhat against those models in years past, but after further goading by some members here and elsewhere, and their testing, and my own testing, the units are pretty decent after all. Latter units are a tad better, but not by too much. The most issue with the older units is that they're older, hence more worn.

I believe the Panasonic AG-W2 and W3 may be rebadges of the Samsung models, rather than the opposite. The mechanism and internals of the Samsung SVW-7000W seems to have a fair bit in common with the newer Samsung decks I got, and doesn't look like any panasonic mechanism I've seen. That is unless the panasonic analogues have completely different internals. The remote from the SVW also works on my other Samsung decks.

The AG-W1 seems to be completely different based on the images of online so it probably is panasonic-made.

Matt_DE's post moved here: SV-5000W to capture NTSC in Germany?
Continue that topic there.

Lordsmurf,
Is there a reason why the JVC SR-MV40 isn't included in your recommended VCR list? I saw you sold one a while back so I figured you would have an opinion on it. I came across one locally and wanted to check with you since it isn't included in the list. Thanks!

Because he probably sold it as a pass through DVD player not for actual capturing VHS tapes.

Nah that's a SVHS model with TBC. I'm guessing he just forgot to add it. There are some JVCs missing on the PAL side as well, like 8600, 8700, 77**.

8960 will do fine even for a Intensity Shuttle used here, no external TBC needed, only S-video available..
