    One thing I haven't seen reviews of is the audio quality of this camera (aka
    ZS1 in USA) when recording movies. Obviously I'm not expecting anything
    great but hopefully it's better than the Panasonic FZ18 which I have - a
    nice camera but its audio quality is awful. Any info appreciated.

    For cameras with a good audio quality, might I suggest any of the Sony
    Handycam cameras... they do take pictures too!

    Thanks, I already have a camcorder but am wondering about the quality of the
    TZ6 for those odd occasions when I need it for video. Obviously it'd be no
    match for a camcorder but I'd at least hope for acceptable audio quality.

    As well as audio quality you might want to look at the possiblity to zoom
    while recording - a thing not all camera's can do.

    But audio-quality on camera's... I haven;t seen them checked on review

    The TZ6 can zoom while recording and has an impressive zoom range for such a
    small camera.
    Yes, I can't find it listed in specifications and only usually gets
    mentioned in feedback from actual users. The sampling rate on my FZ18 seems
    to be far too low, the TZ5 audio was apparently poor quality, but I know the
    TZ7 is better.

    I know from the FZ series that the audio is poor.. You might want the check
    the specs. I reckon Lumix/Panasonic will list a new microphone if they put
    a better one in
