This is a question for all the HS50 owners out there. How goos is the video from this camera?

I use the HS10, and the video quality leaves a lot to be desired, so I shoot most of my family videos with the LX5.

I would appreciate any hands on impressions about the video quality, manual zoom, focussing, internal sounds etc.

thanks,

Raj,

The quality and focusing are better than previous HS cams but there is still the dilemma of shooting while zooming. Panny and Sony are still better choices for video recording because of the slow and smooth motorized zoom.

Thanks Joms. Does the HS50 pick-up lens noise when zooming? I believe that was an issue with the HS10.

Best regards,
