HX9V crispy video

I don't have much knowledge about video formats, but I had assumed that 1080p in AVCHD would produce the highest quality video on the HX9V, period. After reviewing some videos I took, I saw that 720p in MP4 gave sharper results.

Is there a rule of thumb about which format to use? MP4 for low-light indoor scenes? AVCHD for fast moving outdoor scenes?

Below are some screenshots from a test I did. I tested several of the bit rates and it always seemed to that MP4 was superior to AVCHD in this indoor test.
