I'm quite happy with Sony's video quality... but I'll point out something for you. I'll bet you're shooting everything with autofocus enabled, correct? If so, then your kit lens is always operating wide open. That's not the optimum aperture for 'detail' rendition, and in addition, it can produce shallow depth of field in many situations. You might not understand what I mean, but just try shooting some clips in manual focus mode, and manually select an intermediate aperture like f/11 . Focus carefully and then see if you think the detail improves.

Oops. Only after posting the above did I notice this:

I have tried auto and manual (with smaller aperture)...

Oh well... then I don't know what might be the cause of your disappointment.
