ffmpeg says this about the sample:

Works really well with kdenlive. I'de recommend any mjpeg and progressive video shooting camera for Linux users since you'd avoid the AVCHD (t/c)rap. And why shoot interlaced video these days anyway, it's not like many people have interlacing displays or screens anymore...
The camera is a bit slow to focus and zoom is slow, microphone is not very good either, but it is a good buy anyway.
