HX5V audio test
ZS7 audio test

Honestly I don't expect great sound from pocketable P&S but the HX5V's sound is just soooo bad.

The HX5V looks awful in indoor videos unless viewed at a very small size. The ZS7 (virtually identical camera to the ZS6) looks worse indoors though. If either is compared to the S95 or LX5 indoors for video (especially at full wide), the difference is quite noticeable. Of course I wouldn't recommend the S95 if video is a primary concern since it lacks optical zoom/AF but the LX5 offers both.
Disclaimer: I take photos of life rather than live to take photos and my opinions of cameras are reflected accordingly.

I will be shooting a short film but still want to take good photos. I decided on the Lumix FZ100, will probably get it for Xmas. Hopefully the video will be good as I have seen some great clips from this camera on youtube.
