    I love these new cameras that can record 720p video!! =)

    I already own the Panasonic DMC-TZ3 (and I love it!).. I wonder if the changes they’ve made for this new line-up make it worth upgrading? I mean, the biggest flaws of the TZ3 is that it can’t zoom while filming and it’s pretty crappy indoors (all those lenses eat away at the light).

    If they’ve fixed/improved those two problems, I’d buy the TZ5 in a heartbeat. Otherwise I’m not so interested. Filming in 800×480 is good enough for me

    The image quality on that will be horrible and anything above ISO 400 will have too much noise to be useful (watercolours, anyone).

    This is a function of basic physics (sensor size, area / photosite, amount of glass elements => horrible noise, bad dynamic
    range and lots of loss of detail).

    And 720p recording?

    Gimme a break! That came will be lucky enough to resolve 480 lines of resolution.

    Sure, it’s possible to slap even 1080p monicker on it, but it will not resolve anywhere near 720p resolution (if you don’t believe me, take a look at actual resolution charts from professional tests like DV magazine, to find out what I mean).

    But people will buy nevertheless and be sorely disappointed.

    Another win for the marketing (bs) department

    If the the format is HD-DVD, then not of any use anymore. Didn\’t you just published the news that HD-DVD format is DEAD?

    High-definition (HD) video generally refers to any video system of higher resolution than standard-definition (SD) video, most commonly at display resolutions of 1280×720 (720p) or 1920×1080 (1080i or 1080p). This article discusses the general concepts of high-definition video, as opposed to its specific applications in television broadcast (HDTV), video recording formats (HDCAM, HDCAM-SR, DVCPRO HD, D5 HD, XDCAM HD, HDV and AVCHD), the optical disc delivery system Blu-ray Disc and the video tape format D-VHS.

    This is from wikipedia and as you can see HD doesnt have anything with HD DVD. HD DVD is just a media to storage HD video but you can storage HD VIDEO even on CD but you will store like 5 min of video.
