In very general terms, the faster the bitrate, the higher the quality. But other factors are at play as well, such as whether or not you use a 1-pass or 2-pass encoding process. And if your content doesn't have a lot of detail moving in various directions then you may not be able to notice the difference.

This is interesting because I have spent a lot of time reading about and watching GH2 clips, hacked versions. The general consensus is that the top end camcorders can still best the sharpness of a GH2, even though it's often a 28mb/s vs 176mb/s. I know there is more to the information channel than sharpness, but is this really the case or am I missing something? How can 28 look better than nearly 200mb/s?
