Default Got my DMC-FZ35

Recieved it yesterday and only had a very short amount of time to play with it. First of all, i'm confused about a movie mode setting and viewing my HD videos. Record quality settings list as SH,H, and L. What settings in the movie mode in this camera would give me the best quality movies?

1-After recording in AVCHD lite, I get 3 folders when I insert my SDHC card in my reader, they are DCIM,MISC, and Private. Which folder is the video located in, what is the movie file format in, and how do I view it from the card reader? The Private folder has a whole bunch of stuff I just cannot understand(especially the file formats).

2-What is the differences between AVCHD lite, and Motion JPEG? From what I can tell, Motion JPEG saves the video in .mov format. But when I use AVCHD lite, I don't recognize the file extensions. Can anyone be of some assistance to me?

Many thanks to all:
Don

Don-

Welcome to the Panasonic P+S folder. In as much as I never shoot video, I will let the video folks in our circle of FZ-35 users help you with your questions.

We have a nice group and are happy to have you on board.

The AVCHD lite video is located in the "private folder" - the second "sub folder" (not too sure of the name)
