It is a good memory, but when you make the file smaller and smaller, it loses a lot, the full length version is smoother.
Yeah, even compressed way down you can tell it's a DSLR. You just don't get that kind of detail from a P&S or camcorder video with the tiny sensors.

I usually upload to vimeo, quality is not great but it's easy to share.
