any further info on this? i just discovered this myself.

i also had these odd transitions as people moved, as if a feathered blend from one scene to another...i'm thinking it is the full HD setting in insufficient light.

(havent any video experience)

Yes, shortly after posting, I sent the camera to Olympus to check it out. I got a call from an engineer there who wanted to know more specifics said everything seemed okay to them.

After the camera was returned, I decided to experiment by switching from MOV to M-JPEG. The audio/video syncing was fine then. So, that's how I record now. Very large files, but at least I don't have to spend a lot of time syncing the sound. Still not sure why I have the problem with MOV, but most people are fine. I'm using a 4 year old MacPro, with imovie. Maybe it's a bit old for heavy video processing.

I've had exactly the same problem with MOV files across several computers using different operating systems (XP, Vista, WIN7) and with three diffrerent editing programs.

I no longer shoot MOV. Ever.
Ridiculour format in my experience.
