Help needed: Pana G5 - video settings for video noob ...

Hi all,

I have been taking pictures, both analog and digital, for many years now.

Very recently I got a G5 and am very happy with the stills side.

One thing that's a bit over my head are the different video settings. I mostly watch the videos on my PC and live in Europe if that makes a difference to recommended frame rates etc. I don't really think I'd ever seriously edit videos, simply lacking the time. I shoot video of mostly family or social gatherings.

So what are the recommendations re the codec (MPEG-4 or AVCHD)? What about the frame rates? 60, 50, 30 or 25fps?

Any other things I should consider?

Thanks all!
