Re: Aare these hardware issues?

Not necessarily.

The 550D (and 7D and 5DII) record much more information than the LX3, so they need higher compression to reduce it to acceptable sized files.

The 550D files have a much higher bitrate (54Mbps) and are much more compressed than the LX3 files (6Mbps), hence play back is much more cpu intensive.

Isn't higher bitrate less compressed (higher quality) than lower bitrate?
