FZ28 video vs. TZ7 video
May 24, 2009

Hi everybody, please help. I want a camera with HD video ability. Both the FZ28 and TZ7 have this ability but the TZ7 has stereo sound and seems to make crisper images although everything I've read so far indicates that the AVCHD files it generates are difficult to edit and reviewers have advised sticking to the older format.

In which case the only advantage, apart from size, is stereo sound.

The FZ28 has that killer zoom range, raw output and other manual options that make it much more versatile for someone like myself who aims to do top quality pix (accepting the limitations of the small sensor, of course). In images I have reviewed on the web, the noise factor for both cameras is about the same but my impression is that the FZ28 looks less noisy although the TZ7 is supposed to have better noise processing.

Is the FZ28 video as good as the TZ7's?, In which case I think the FZ28 will get my money.
