Thanks very much, that's just what I was after. Pretty compelling.

I can't fathom why they chose to output 60 instead of 30 unless to
mislead. It's the "digital zoom" thing all over again. See this
extract from a hands on with the ZS3:

"With its full optical zoom range at its disposal, the ZS3 shoots
720p HD video at a super-smooth 60 fps (and with stereo audio capture
to boot)."

Personally I'll be weighing up this vs a Canon 960IS or SX200.

Where's the misleading? 60p is smoother than 30p. I've been choosing 720p at 60 on my camcorder over 30 and 1080i because the image quality is nice.
