I recently purchased one of those new wave of point & shoot digicams (canon SD780) that shoot high definition 720p video.

Unfortunately it only writes to Quicktime files.

How can I go about editing these in Windows without spending any money? I found a few MOV to AVI or WMV converters but am experiencing some quality degradation in the output.

I've been using HandBrake to convert videos from my Creative Vado HD to be Quicktime compatible. It will work the other way as well.
