I bought Panasonic V500MK, video is fine, but the still pictures are totally unacceptable: very patchy, and much more blurred than on my 11 years old 4MP camera. In addition, under low light conditions, still pictures are very grainy, though the flash is working. I tried both automatic and manual modes with different settings - to no avail.
So my question is: is this something one would normally expect from still pictures from a camcorder ? Or does it look more like a problem with my unit ?
