I just got my 1010. I like it, but the video recording is not the best. If I hold the camcorder still, the video is great, but once I move, it gets VERY pixely.

I have it on the highest video setting and video stablizer is on.

Could somone tell me the settings that they are using?

Also, I have a 16 Gig card Class 6.

Any help would be great.

It depends what you are shooting. If you shoot water moving like in a mountain waterfall, it will "pixelate". If you shoot water sports, it will "pixelate". What are you shooting? Compression will compensate with fast motion and many cameras that are not "professional" has this problem. I don't know of one under 1000 dollars that can do this job. Also, since all processing is done "on-the-fly" and you are using high compression codec with a very tight bit rate being squeezed into an sd card, this is going to be an issue until better cpu utilization for compression algorhythm comes around. It's good...but not good enough ...yet.

This is just my opinion but I have not had any issues with pixel issues. Shooting family members running, cars burning rubber down a 1/8 mile track, etc.

try 720p 60fps for fast motion...higher definition of 1080p 30fps for slow and still scenes.

Also, the image stabilizer is known to make the image worse with movement. Turn it off and see if it looks better to you. I didn't like the way motion looked when panning the camera so I shut off the electronic stabilization and it was much better.

I reduced the video caption to the highest 720p option versus the highest 1080p. Having it at the highest at this point may not be the most recommended due to many softwares (ie. quick time) just starting to allow viewing at this option (still has bugs and not to mention it becomes somewhat of a resource hog on your computer).

My computer was struggling playing at 1080p and I have a dual core machine. Also, you're not sacrificing much on quality either. I was the same way when I got my Sanyo. I wanted to shoot in the highgest because that's why I bought the thing. I did find the sweet spot and the video is awesome. It plays seamlessly on quicktime and iMovie.
