Ive got a few clips here. The TZ7 file are tagged as such.
Dave pearce's videos on Vimeo

I love this cam for its size and ease of use. since i got it nearly two weeks ago i haven't used my HF10. Im not saying its better but im impressed with the quality considering the size and the fact that im more likely to have it with me.

Im struggling a bit getting decent output from Vegas at the moment but im getting there.

So how do you lock AF/AE when shooting video?

Buggered if i know ;-)

You cant as far as i can see lock AE. You can lock focus as it has two modes, continuous and off so it will only focus once, when you press the button. You do have EC though.

Now i would never suggest this is even close to my HF10, control wise but at least this does have EC. On my HF10 you can lock exposure but then you loose AE.

Do you mean half-press? OK -- that will work fine. But, does the half-press also set exposure? And, will that exposure remain constant while shooting video?

With video on this camera there is no half press. Its actually a button on the back of the camera that you just press and the video starts recording.
You can set the record mode to just focus the once when the button is pressed or to keep using AF (and this actually works ok most of the time) but the exposure always seems active as far as i can see. In fact once recording the only manual adjustment on the camera is the zoom control.

Pana really screws you with this camera.

Yes, it uses AVCHD Lite which must be 720p60.

BUT, in the fine print they note the CCD output is only 30p!

So they simply toss two copies of each CCD read-out into a p60 data stream.

If you want p30 you can shoot Motion-JPEG and get the same fps without the hassle of AVCHD.

Shooting MJPEG has slightly less image quality, is limited to 8mins 20 secs (2GB) file size and audio is not as good (i believe).
Camera aside i dont really have any problems with AVCHD lite. Im in the UK so for me its 50P (CCD output is 25fps) and Vegas handles it fine (now that i know to disable re sample).
In fact i dont come in to contact with any PC's/ that cant handle AVCHD these days. Even Windows 7 supports it.
I find there is a lot of people reading old posts about how much hassle AVCHD is. Its almost become a must that someone posts about how dificult it is to work with. Its been around for a while now and you dont need a top end PC to use it, most modern PC's will at least play back the files these day.
Most of the complaints seems to come from Mac users, of which im not one of them.

Just my opinion though.

Lets keep it in mind this is still a P&S we are talking about and we should look on it as such.

Dave.

The is an advantage to Motion-JPEG. Under OS X, AVCHD gets converted to AIC losing a generation.

But, the real issue is that images are only captured at 25fps or 30fps. This ain't 720p50/720p60!

Is each frame simply repeated twice or is some kind of interpolation used. For example:

A B C D
a ab b bc c cd d

A long time ago I realized the long GOP encoding could create a "tween" image. Using two images 1/30th second apart, when motion vectors are generated the values can be halved to generate a frame 1/60th second between the two real images.

If only 25/30fps, the shutter-speed must be 1/25th or 1/30th which is impossibe.

What is you experience if you stand close to a hiway with rapidly moving cars? Do they move smoothly or in tiny jerks?
