Default Question re video types- mov vs. achvd (or something likt that?)

The Panasonic Lumix zs6 (and 5) make videos in .mov files.
I believe the 7 has some improved form of video, is that correct? If so, does it take up less space or upload more quickly?

I have shot all of one video on the zs6. It ran a minute and took me l00 minutes to upload via Verizon dsl.

Is that about right?
With the other video format about how long would it take?

I suppose I can live without sharing videos, but was amazed how long it takes to upload (how do folks on youtube put up these LONG videos... just start the upload and turn the computer off the next day?)

Have no idea whether .mov files or avchd are superior or upload faster.
I believe cameras with avchd can take *longer* videos.

Anyone else have any information?

Your long upload time may be due to your internet connection.
