Can someone explain in detail what exactly is the AVCHD and what is the MJPEG compression? What are their main differences, the advantages and disadvantages of each one etc?

I am asking as it seems that the MJPEG is not creating the mud issue...

I don't know why Panasonce describes the JPEG codec as Motion JPEG when they actually seem to use PhotoJPEG which has better size / quality ratio. Good info about the both Photo and Motion JPEG here from Marco Solario - click on 4:2:2 C in the small menu bar and scroll all the way down:
