I had planned a 3 week trip to Texas and just bought the Panasonic Lumix G3.
Now I knew that the image for digital stills would be good but was also looking for a cam for some basic HD video work.
This is some test footage - shot and recorded in 1920x1080 mode - with some basic editing and sound dubbing in Corel's PRO X5 video editing software.
Quite pleased with the results but do not try and zoom in or out when using video mode with this camera. It does not hold focus - unless I am doing something really wrong!
