Re: RX100 video IQ impressive compared to most still camera videos

"The guys over at EOSHD seem to think its good enough to intercut with Canon 5D footage. From a pocketable compact who's video is probably going to be used for home movies then I think it's plenty good enough."

First, it is plenty good enough for most.

But the reason the RX100 clips can be intercut with the Canon video clips is that the Canon video is also relatively low resolution and artifact-laden compared with camcorders, just like the RX100. You could not intercut footage with a Panasonic TM900 because its superior sharpness and moire-free clips would be quite conspicuous. According to tests the RX100 video is actually a bit better than that of Canon DSLRs (but they have superior glass to choose from).
