I gave up on Panasonic when they put the 30 minute video clip limit on the US LX7. That was 'inspired' marketing, which ruined that camera for me, and poisoned my view of Panasonic as a reliable supplier.

It's to avoid having the camera classified as a camcorder, which is subject to much higher tariffs. Many digicams have the same limit. Blame asinine customs policies, not manufacturers.
