32% bigger sensor size Edit
The Sony HDR-PJ810 is a 24.5MP sensor camcorder. That's 7.71MP bigger than the Panasonic HX-DC10 (24.5MP). Read more

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Bigger digital zoom Edit
Sony HDR-PJ810 is 160x (digital), but the Panasonic HX-DC10 is only a 120x (digital) camcorder (40x smaller). Read more

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

Interchangeable lens Edit
The Sony HDR-PJ810 has an interchangeable lens, but the Panasonic HX-DC10 does not have an interchangeable lens. Read more

The lens in the device can be swapped round.

An interchangeable lens system allows the user to use alternative lenses which might be better suited for a shoot than a standard lens.
