Agree that the audio is better on the camcorder, it has a dedicated mic though. The built-in audio without the mic attached is not as good.

Don't really agree that the camcorder has the best video of the 3, certainly not correct AWB.
AWB is worse, YES, but video is better for my eyes...Maybe, I'm wrong.

I agree, although the camcorder is less saturated than the others the WB to me feels much more neutral/accurate and less warm biased.

Audio I couldn't compare, i'm on my tiny eeepc so any audio is abuse to my ears

not sure about the k30 video, been looking at a lot of footage taken with the k30, and it seems to suffer heavily from artifacts, such as jello vision, and choppy frame rate,... that being said, the photos the k30 takes are amaaaaazzzziiiiinnnnngggg

It'd have been interesting to see how an iPhone would have compared. Im not trying to purposefully sound negative but I wasn't that impressed with the DSLR's.

This is the most relevant thread I could find in which to add this post:

The following two videos (both of which can be watched in 1080p) provide proof that, under the right conditions (and leaving aside the budget audio quality), the K-30 can produce some beautiful videos (yes, there is a bit of banding in the first video, due to the setting sun, but...):

I originally posted this next video in another thread a few weeks ago:

P.S. I shot neither of these videos.
