Hi everyone, just a quikc note to let you know we've just published our full review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 / ZS3 here:
http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Panas ... C_TZ7_ZS3/
This includes an HD video clip I've uploaded to Vimeo...
The clip was filmed using its AVCHD Lite (720p / 30fps) movie mode at the highest 17Mbit/s bit rate. Vimeo can't accept the camera's native MTS files, so I used Adobe Media Encoder to convert it to an MP4 file using the same frame size, frame rate and H.264 compression.
The clip demonstrates the camera's ability to optically zoom the lens while filming, although it also shows AF issues during the process. It's possible to avoid this searching by disabling CAF and Pre-AF, although you may subsequently find the subject gradually becomes out of focus as you adjust the zoom.
