Gizmodo: TG-1 Leaky, Slow, "awful" video
Jun 14, 2012

Gizmodo did an UW roundup.

The TS4 came out on top (even though their camera died during the evaluation), the TG-1 number 2.

Conclusion

"... what is wrong with the video? It looks absolutely awful. Grainy. Focus jumping all over. Hands-down the worst of the lot. It also has the worst panoramic mode. It has a very slow processor—five seconds from power-on to being able to shoot, and processing photos with effects takes forever. It's also the thickest and heaviest of the bunch. Worse, it fails the water test. "

The funny thing is, watching the videos I thought it was the best of the lot (looking at the trees there TG-1 had the sharpest leaves with the least smearing of detail. I observed the focus jumping once, I thought that was a good thing as many P&S cameras don't AF in video mode.
