    Depends on what you are intending to do with the footage. If your end goal is Youtube, then 30FPS (NTSC) is better, the same for anything PC based. PAL is more important if you intend to use footage for broadcast or burning to PAL DVDs.

    plus in NTSC you get 60fps where in PAL you can only record in 50fps

    In the UK.
    Go for the highest frame rate available ... actually, no matter here you live.

    30P for the P3P

    UK 25p/50p PAL, USA 30p/60p NTSC
    It doesn't matter if you are filming in broad daylight and export to youtube or for computer use only,
    But I see 2 reasons at least why location does matter:
    1: for TV broadcast/DVD Authoring
    2: If you film in artificial (on mains)lighting, UK is 50hz, US is 60hz. If you are not at the right FPS for these locations, the light/whole picture will look like flickering. Not nice.
