Videos do not fall victim to any trailing or frequency interference, but they're far from perfect. There's a general lack of smoothness, due in all likelihood to the maximum Full HD shooting speed of 24 frames per second. Compression artifacting is also a distraction, and shows up pretty clearly in moving and shaded areas. More on how CamcorderInfo tests motion.
Sharpness is much more impressive than motion. The tiny sensor is still able to resolve 500 lw/ph horizontally and 600 vertically under full studio illumination. More on how CamcorderInfo tests video sharpness.
Low Light Sensitivity
Videos shot in low light must be done with care, because the sensor requires 20 lux of ambient illumination in order to gather a usable amount (50 IRE) of video image data. This is fairly average for a fixed lens camera, but the result lags behind Panasonic's FZ200.
