Question about video recording on my new Sony Nex5n, recording in AVCHD or MP4

I got some assistance here because I couldn't upload video to youtube and the software the camera came with it has a youtube upload option but it really reduced the quality. Someone said to get an editing program and convert the AVCHD video to MP4 and then upload it.

I was playing with the camera and saw that it also records in MP4 at 1080i.

My question is, it that the same quality video at 1080i in AVCHD ?

I googled it and found this video of the video difference in MPEG4 and AVCHD
MPEG4 vs AVCHD Lite Video Comparison (4 min 18 sec)

To me it looks like MPEG4 looked less blurry when panning, and the AVCHD looked better when the camera was still and filming something moving.

Just curious what mode you guys are recording in
