short answer: the output of digicam video is HIGHLY compressed
non-source data and makes it cumbersome to do edits.

camcorders, at least ones that have DV output, are MUCH more lossless
and editable (avi) than the mp4 and higher layer native compressions
that flash-based cams use.

HA-HA, I'm waiting for the GH2 with SDXC and RAW video too!!! But until then I'm gonna 'settle' for the GH1, after all, I'm a mere mortal... But I don't understand your concern, the GH1 has p720 M-jpg, and FullHD to those who think it make a difference. If the M-jpg bit rate is good, I'm more than happy.
