    Hey, I've recently purchased a Panasonic PV-GS120 and I've taken some footage with it. When played back on the LCD and through the RCA jacks on my TV, the quality was amazing. I tried to transfer it to my computer using the firewire and Adobe Premier Pro 7 and the quality greatly decreased...It saves as a large file(.avi), BUT the quality goes down. Any ideas on why this happens and if there is a way to stop this? I'd really like to edit the footage I took and this decrease in quality is really starting to bother me. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The output from the firewire port should be an uncompressed raw digital signal. The only thing I can think of is that your settings in premier are wrong when capturing.

    Do you think you can tell me what settings I should have for Premier? Thanks in advance.
