Just found on YouTube,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9Y991aNOW8
Full screen by going to YouTube and clicking the lower right corner


Because so many point and shoot cameras have video capabilities these days,
it might be a fine thing to have a forum panel for us to embed our YouTube uploads,
for relative comparisons between camera types
, for fun, for sharing our moving pictures.
Such a panel would also promote better videography to come from these modest miracle cameras.
Cheers,

Hi Reid, it's a good idea, but youtube shrinks the resolution and applies so much of its own compression that what you see on it is not an accurate representation of the actual video quality - although it could still be useful... what do others think?

I agree, Gordon. Have just found today a more useful option:

Vimeo is free within limits, and much higher quality video is possible.
For example, two short clips in compressed high definition:
Panasonic TZ5 without a tripod, by fleming86
Panasonic TZ5 with a tripod, also by fleming86

Related question: can we embed video here? If so,
here's the code for the second example above.
If not, let's remove this portion of this posting:
<object width="400" height="300"> <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="movie" value="http://www.vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=978250&amp;server=www.vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=&amp;fullscreen=1" /> <embed src="http://www.vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=978250&amp;server=www.vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="400" height="300"></embed></object><br /><a href="http://www.vimeo.com/978250?pg=embed&sec=978250">Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 HD 720p Video Sample</a> from <a href="http://www.vimeo.com/user458882?pg=embed&sec=978250">fleming86</a> on <a href="http://vimeo.com?pg=embed&sec=978250">Vimeo</a>.

I take as a lesson: use a tripod or monopod if at all possible. Support,
instead of relying on the OIS, seems to cure (at least here) the camera's tendency to "focus hunt".
Or perhaps fleming86 locked the focus during the second shoot?

More TZ5 video samples available at Vimeo.

Cheers,

This camera records too much grainy noise in movie mode. Everything is perfect but the mic.

You have to keep your finger away from the mic. That's what causes the noise.

I'm no sound purist, but keep your finger away from the mic and the sound is okay.
