4 Nice compromise...Emerton | 18/09/2009 | See all Emerton's reviews (5)...for HD video and good stills. Extremely versatile and good design.Recommended strongly for anyone who wants versatility and resonable quality without an SLR with boxes of lenses. Only drawback is that the 'AVCHD lite' video files need converting by'koyotesoft' before they can be imported to any editing software.The included software is total rubbish and Panasonic should be ashamed of themselves for palming it off to their customers, PC's are part of a digital cameras workflow and a company their size should be providing customers with the tools they need to get the most from their products and not effectively saying 'sort out the problem yourself'. A decent, compatible editing programme would prove that Panasonic are proud of their products, even if it was only a download from their website. WAKE UP PANNY!!
