video is currently used by Panasonic DMC-ZS3, Panasonic DMC-FZ3, Sony, Cannon
AVCHD Lite Camcorder, etc.
The main differences between AVCHD Lite and the regular AVCHD: a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720p in AVCHD Lite compared to 1920 x 1080p in regular AVCHD and a less-intensive compression method - both of which make the format more suitable for less powerful camera hardware.
