(maximal 570)

Pros + Sharpness and colour at the upper AVCHD limit
+ Many manual controls
+ 1080p50
Cons - setting focus manually is a little complicated
- display and viewfinder have low resolution
Conclusion Not only does Panasonic offer 50p, it also brings enough wide angle (which even isn´t affected by the active image stabilisation), good low-light performance and colors, great sharpness and lots of manual control.
