Panasonic HDC-HS700 is a hot AVCHD camcorder with functions to record 1080/60p and 1080/50p videos with 28Mbps as bit rate for high quality display. Another impressive function is the picture adjustment options to make color tone hotter or cooler with WB shift color depth setting. Even though Sony PlayStation 3 plays most native 1080 60p files flawlessly, there are still some AVCHD MTS files with picture adjustment that do not play smoothly on PS3.
