The older K-5 uses motion JPEG as its video compression codec. MJPEG is less efficient than MPEG-4/AVCHD, which is why everyone has moved to the latter codec. Better quality at the same bitrate or the same quality at a lower bitrate. But MPEG-4/AVCHD is more demanding of the processor or video card, so having a newer processor and/or video card can pay real dividends.

The K-01 supports three levels of video compression. Which do you have your camera set to?
