    I'm importing 720p HD video from my new digicam, a Panasonic DMC-ZS3. After importing the video into iMovie, the speed of replay is way too fast (2-3x normal speed). I think it may have something to do with the fact that I'm downloading 720p and somehow the progressive scan is confusing iMovie: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9130841&#9130841

    Does anyone know how to fix this? I don't want to have to change the speed of the movie after import - it's hard to get just right.

    Edit: I wonder if the problem might actually be due to the codec that the camera is using: AVCHD Lite. Any ideas?

    Me too

    I have the same problem... so far my online research tells me I have 2 options:
    1. take it back to the store
    2. use ShedWorx's Voltaic HD for 39.99 http://shedworx.com/

    I have the new Panasonic DMC-TS1
