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.
Here are two sample HD videos in the AVCHD Lite format, presented for free download as original and unedited MTS files. They were filmed using the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 digital camera. These videos are taken straight out of the camera, with no post-processing of any kind.
Noise can affect all types and models of digital cameras, so the noise problem and noise reduction solution described here can be applied to photos taken by any camera, though the level of success may vary depending on the original photo quality. Using the free demo version of Neat Image noise reduction software, JPEG photos taken with the Panasonic ZS3 (or any other camera) can be improved or cleaned-up by following a simple process.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 is a micro four-thirds type (4/3 type) digital camera, with interchangeable lenses, that is capable of recording 720p HD video in the AVCHD Lite video format (MTS file, 1280 x 720 resolution), as well as in the Motion JPEG video format. Some sample unedited HD video is shown below, for outdoor and daytime recording conditions, as a resource for new or potential owners looking to compare video quality for this camera with others.
The Panasonic ZS3 can, in many ways, act as a camcorder replacement, because of its unlimited recording time, ability to zoom while recording, 720p HD quality video, dedicated video record button, 16:9 aspect ratio option, and stereo sound microphone. Of course, a video camcorder specializes in capturing video, while the Panasonic ZS3 does not, though it features the AVCHD Lite video format.
