Why is so big the diference between a 1280x720 photo and the 1280x720 video? I think that in video mode the HD700 resolution is half (or less) of the theorical "1280x720". I think that the codec is not so good.

Here an example:


And now the "HD" video at 1280x720


As you can see, video quality lost a lot of detail.

There is no way you can compare jpg codec to h.264 codec, they are designed to do different things. jpg is for photos and h.264 for video, of course you could get a canon TX1 (mjpeg for videos if memory serves me correctly) if you want one video and photos to nearer to each other but the video files are massive compared to the sanyo. Also the vimeo link is protected so I am unable to see it.
