DSC-HX30V: MP4 vs AVCHD

A relative bought a new DSC-HX30V and I am helping him to setup the camera. I can choose between MP4 and AVCHD. I am not sure the difference between the two. Are they both H.264 format? If yes, which one is better? Has anyone compared the quality between MP4 and AVCHD using the same bitrate?

My current preference is MP4 because the file is not hidden deep inside an AVCHD folder. So it is easily for archiving.
