How to improve the 1080P video quality on the Gx80?

I’m using the 4K quality always but I’m traveling now and I really like to shoot in slow motion so I need the 1080p quality for this method.
Unfortunately the 1080p video quality on the Gx80/85 is very soft and looks bad, I’m also thinking, is there any different between AVCHD to MP4 in settings?

1080 looks "soft" because you've been accustomed to using 4K. Realisticly each frame of 1080 is equivalent to a 2MP stillimage. Each frame of a 4K video is an 8MP image, hence "4K". Speed of the card has absolutely nothing to do with sharpness. If the media was too slow, you would be getting write error messages.
