Here is another AVCHD Lite video sample for free download, from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3. This sample video, available as an unedited MTS file, features the 12x zoom capability of the camera; the Panasonic ZS3 can zoom while recording video. The video begins at the widest angle, at 1x zoom, then zooms in at its top speed until it reaches the maximum 12x zoom. This should give a good idea of the high picture quality that is maintained throughout the zooming up through the maximum 12x zoom, as well as the speed and smoothness of the zoom function. The video is recorded handheld, without a tripod.
