Default what is difference between 1280X720HQ and 1280X720

I have been playing with the video on my samsung wb550 - hz-15 - what is the difference between 1280X720HQ, 1280X720 - they are the same resolution? What am I missing?

HQ is the high quality. The other mode is probaby SQ, standard quality. HQ will have less compression and retain more detail at the cost of larger file size.

Yes, HQ means "High Quality". There is 3 modes that I know about SQ, HQ, HD. I'm pretty sure you know what they all stand for but yes. The better the quality the bigger the AVI file will be. If you have a "Not so good computer" an HQ and or HD video would lag a lot.
