The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is a compact travel zoom camera with a pretty elaborate GPS setup. Not only does the ZS20 log your location, it also has a database of a million landmarks and maps of ninety countries. The ZS20 also packs a new 20X zoom lens, 14.1 Megapixel MOS sensor (which Panasonic says has less noise than the CCD used in the ZS10), super-fast autofocus, 10 frame/second continuous shooting, a great auto mode, in-camera panorama stitching, and Full HD 1080/60p video recording in the AVCHD Progressive formats. Have you been one of the DMC-ZS20 users? Ever tried to edit your Panasonic DMC-ZS20 AVCHD footages with some common Mac tools like FCP, iMovie, FCE, Avid…
