2 Reasons For
26% bigger sensor size Edit
The Sony NEX-EA50M has a sensor size of 16.7MP. That's 4.3MP bigger than the JVC GY-HM200 (16.7MP). 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.

1% higher display resolution Edit
The Sony NEX-EA50M is a 921,600 pixels display resolution camcorder. That's 1,600 pixels higher than the JVC GY-HM200 (921,600 pixels). Read more
