21 Reasons For for Choosing the JVC GZ-RY980H

Lighter

The JVC GZ-RY980H has a weight of 58, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a 7.4kg camcorder (7.3kg heavier), the Canon XC15 is a 955g camcorder (897g heavier), the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 2.4kg camcorder (2.3kg heavier) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is a 2.8kg camcorder (2.7kg heavier). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Bigger Total Megapixels

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 18.9 camcorder. That's 5.54MP bigger than the Canon XC15 (13.36MP), 9.44MP bigger than the Panasonic AGUX180 (9.46MP) and 12.31MP bigger than the Sony HXRMC2500E (6.59MP). 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.

198x Bigger Digital Zoom

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 200 (digital) camcorder, whereas the Canon XC15 is only a 2x (digital) camcorder (198x smaller) and the Panasonic AGUX180 is only a 30x (digital) camcorder (170x smaller). 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.

Image Stabilizer

The JVC GZ-RY980H has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E), whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Interchangeable Lens

The JVC GZ-RY980H has an interchangeable lens, and so does the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, whereas the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E do not. 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.

36% Lower Minimum Aperture Number

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 1.8 minimum aperture camcorder, and so does the Sony HXRMC2500E. That's 1 lower than the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic AGUX180 (2.8). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the device to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Full HD

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E), whereas the Canon XC15 is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

60fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The JVC GZ-RY980H has a maximum frame rate of 120, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Panasonic AGUX180 are both only 60fps camcorders (60fps slower). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

7.86MP Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The JVC GZ-RY980H has an effective megapixels (image) of 14, but the Canon XC15 is only a 12MP camcorder (2MP lower) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is only a 6.14MP camcorder (7.86MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Face Detection

The JVC GZ-RY980H has a face detection, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E do not have this feature. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Remote Operation

The JVC GZ-RY980H supports remote operation, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E do not. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

Built-in Microphone

The JVC GZ-RY980H has a built-in microphone, and so do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

HDMI

The JVC GZ-RY980H supports HDMI (as do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E), but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not support this feature. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Wi-Fi

The JVC GZ-RY980H features Wi-Fi (as do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E), but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The JVC GZ-RY980H supports Near Field Communication (NFC) (as does the Sony HXRMC2500E), whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic AGUX180 do not support this feature. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Bluetooth

The JVC GZ-RY980H supports bluetooth, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E do not. More ...

'Bluetooth' indicates whether the camcorder supports bluetooth, a communication protocol frequently used with accessories such as wireless flash units.

A Lot Longer Maximum Battery Life

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 5 battery life camcorder, whereas the Canon XC15 is only a 1.83h battery life camcorder (3.17h shorter) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is only a 4.75h battery life camcorder (0.25h shorter). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

Longer Video Recording Time

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 4.5 video recording time camcorder. That's 4.05h longer than the Canon XC15 (0.45h). More ...

'Video Recording Time' is how long the camcorder can record uninterrupted footage before the battery needs charging or changing.

A longer video recording time means that you can record more video in a single session, and need to recharge the battery less.

Waterproof

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a waterproof camcorder, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E are not. More ...

'Waterproof' denotes whether the camcorder is resistant against liquid - so can be safely immersed in water without causing problems.

Waterproof cameras allow you to safely take your camera out on a boat or to the beach without worrying about damage. It also allows for some visually stunning underwater videos!

Better Kagoo Score

The JVC GZ-RY980H has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF scored only 69, the Canon XC15 scored 78, the Panasonic AGUX180 scored 78 and the Sony HXRMC2500E scored 81.

Cheaper by £732

The JVC GZ-RY980H costs £689.58, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is £2,460.00, the Canon XC15 is £1,999.00, the Panasonic AGUX180 is £2,934.00 and the Sony HXRMC2500E is £1,421.35.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the JVC GZ-RY980H

59% Smaller Optical Zoom

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 10 optical zoom camcorder, and so does the Canon XC15. That's 10x smaller than the Panasonic AGUX180 (20x) and 14x smaller than the Sony HXRMC2500E (24x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The JVC GZ-RY980H has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Sony HXRMC2500E, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Canon XC15 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels) and 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Panasonic AGUX180 (4096 x 2160 pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

29% Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

The JVC GZ-RY980H has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 40.5. That's 459.5mm shorter than the Canon XC15 (500mm), 16.5mm longer than the Panasonic AGUX180 (24mm) and 13.7mm longer than the Sony HXRMC2500E (26.8mm). More ...

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camcorder can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

50% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder. That's 2.8 lower than the Canon XC15 (5.6), 1.7 lower than the Panasonic AGUX180 (4.5) and 0.6 lower than the Sony HXRMC2500E (3.4). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Smaller Optical Sensor Size

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a 1 optical sensor size camcorder, and so do the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E. That's 3" smaller than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF (4"). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a camcorder. The sensor is what processes the light from the lens and transfers it into a digital image.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality results, because more light can be brought into the lens at once, This leads to larger, more highly-detailed videos and photos.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The JVC GZ-RY980H has an effective megapixels (movie) of 2.91. That's 5.88MP lower than the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic AGUX180 (8.79MP) and 3.23MP lower than the Sony HXRMC2500E (6.14MP). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The JVC GZ-RY980H does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic AGUX180), whereas the Sony HXRMC2500E does. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Smaller Display Diagonal

JVC GZ-RY980H is only 3 screen size, and so do the Canon XC15 and the Sony HXRMC2500E. That's 0.5" smaller than the Panasonic AGUX180 (3.5"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

Not As Many Stockists

The JVC GZ-RY980H is only stocked by 1 shop, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is stocked by 2 sellers, the Canon XC15 is stocked by 2 stores and the Panasonic AGUX180 is stocked by 2 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.
Less Popular

The JVC GZ-RY980H is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Worse Brand

JVC camcorders have an average rating of only 84.5%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Panasonic has an average rating of 90.1% and Sony has an average rating of 92.9%.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

A Lot Lower Minimum Aperture Number

The Sony HXRMC2500E has a minimum aperture number of 1.8 (as does the JVC GZ-RY980H), however the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic AGUX180 are both 2.8 minimum aperture camcorders (1 higher). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the device to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HXRMC2500E

2.7kg Heavier

The Sony HXRMC2500E is a 2.8 camcorder. That's 4.6kg lighter than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF (7.4kg), 1.8kg heavier than the Canon XC15 (955g), 2.7kg heavier than the JVC GZ-RY980H (58g) and 400g heavier than the Panasonic AGUX180 (2.4kg). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

12.31MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HXRMC2500E has a total megapixels of 6.59, but the Canon XC15 is a 13.36MP camcorder (6.77MP bigger), the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 18.9MP camcorder (12.31MP bigger) and the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 9.46MP camcorder (2.87MP bigger). 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.

4 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Sony HXRMC2500E has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the JVC GZ-RY980H), however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Canon XC15 have a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels and the Panasonic AGUX180 has a max video resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

76% Shorter Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony HXRMC2500E is only 393.6 maximum focal length. That's 1,226.4mm shorter than the JVC GZ-RY980H (1,620mm) and 114.4mm shorter than the Panasonic AGUX180 (508mm). More ...

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camcorder is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Slightly Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony HXRMC2500E is 26.8 minimum focal length, but the Canon XC15 is a 500mm minimum focal length camcorder (473.2mm longer), the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 40.5mm minimum focal length camcorder (13.7mm longer) and the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 24mm minimum focal length camcorder (2.8mm shorter). More ...

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camcorder can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

A Lot Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HXRMC2500E has a maximum aperture number of 3.4, however the Canon XC15 is a 5.6 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.2 higher), the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.6 lower) and the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 4.5 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.1 higher). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

3" Smaller Optical Sensor Size

The Sony HXRMC2500E has an optical sensor size of 1 (as do the JVC GZ-RY980H and the Panasonic AGUX180), however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a 4" optical sensor size camcorder (3" larger). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a camcorder. The sensor is what processes the light from the lens and transfers it into a digital image.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality results, because more light can be brought into the lens at once, This leads to larger, more highly-detailed videos and photos.

57% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HXRMC2500E is a 6.14 camcorder. That's 5.86MP lower than the Canon XC15 (12MP) and 7.86MP lower than the JVC GZ-RY980H (14MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

2.65MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Sony HXRMC2500E is only 6.14 (movie mode), but the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic AGUX180 are both 8.79MP (movie mode) camcorders (2.65MP higher) and the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 2.91MP (movie mode) camcorder (3.23MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony HXRMC2500E is a 3 screen size camcorder (as do the Canon XC15 and the JVC GZ-RY980H), whereas the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 3.5" screen size camcorder (0.5" larger). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon XC15

Image Stabilizer

The Canon XC15 has an image stabilizer, and so do the JVC GZ-RY980H, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

A Lot Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Canon XC15 has a maximum aperture number of 5.6, however the JVC GZ-RY980H is only a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.8 lower), the Panasonic AGUX180 is only a 4.5 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.1 lower) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is only a 3.4 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.2 lower). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Built-in Microphone

The Canon XC15 has a built-in microphone (as do the JVC GZ-RY980H, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E), however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

HDMI

The Canon XC15 supports HDMI, and so do the JVC GZ-RY980H, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Wi-Fi

The Canon XC15 features Wi-Fi, and so do the JVC GZ-RY980H, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF does not. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

18 Months Newer

The Canon XC15 is four years newer than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, 18 months newer than the Panasonic AGUX180 and four years newer than the Sony HXRMC2500E

One More Award

The Canon XC15 has received 1 award, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF has received no awards, the JVC GZ-RY980H has received no awards, the Panasonic AGUX180 has received no awards and the Sony HXRMC2500E has received no awards.

User Reviews Are Significantly Better

Based on 1 review, the average user review score of the Canon XC15 is 100%, whereas the average rating of the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is 40% (based on 1 review).

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon XC15

Significantly Smaller Optical Zoom

The Canon XC15 has an optical zoom of 10 (as does the JVC GZ-RY980H), whereas the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 20x optical zoom camcorder (10x bigger) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is a 24x optical zoom camcorder (14x bigger). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Heavier

The Canon XC15 is a 955 camcorder. That's 6.4kg lighter than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF (7.4kg), 897g heavier than the JVC GZ-RY980H (58g), 1.4kg lighter than the Panasonic AGUX180 (2.4kg) and 1.8kg lighter than the Sony HXRMC2500E (2.8kg). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

5.54MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon XC15 has a total megapixels of 13.36, but the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 18.9MP camcorder (5.54MP bigger), the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 9.46MP camcorder (3.9MP smaller) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is a 6.59MP camcorder (6.77MP smaller). 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.

Only 3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Canon XC15 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Blackmagic Design URSA EF), however the Panasonic AGUX180 has a max video resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

99% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon XC15 has a digital zoom of 2. That's 198x smaller than the JVC GZ-RY980H (200x) and 28x smaller than the Panasonic AGUX180 (30x). 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.

A Lot Higher Minimum Aperture Number

The Canon XC15 has a minimum aperture number of 2.8 (as does the Panasonic AGUX180), however the JVC GZ-RY980H and the Sony HXRMC2500E are both 1.8 minimum aperture camcorders (1 lower). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the device to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

A Lot Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Canon XC15 is 500 minimum focal length, but the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 40.5mm minimum focal length camcorder (459.5mm shorter), the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 24mm minimum focal length camcorder (476mm shorter) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is a 26.8mm minimum focal length camcorder (473.2mm shorter). More ...

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camcorder can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

2MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon XC15 is a 12 camcorder. That's 2MP lower than the JVC GZ-RY980H (14MP) and 5.86MP higher than the Sony HXRMC2500E (6.14MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

0.5MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Canon XC15 is only 8.29 (movie mode), but the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 2.91MP (movie mode) camcorder (5.38MP lower), the Panasonic AGUX180 is an 8.79MP (movie mode) camcorder (0.5MP higher) and the Sony HXRMC2500E is a 6.14MP (movie mode) camcorder (2.15MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon XC15 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the JVC GZ-RY980H and the Panasonic AGUX180), however the Sony HXRMC2500E has this feature. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Canon XC15 is a 3 screen size camcorder (as do the JVC GZ-RY980H and the Sony HXRMC2500E), whereas the Panasonic AGUX180 is a 3.5" screen size camcorder (0.5" larger). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Canon XC15 has a maximum battery life of 1.83. That's 3.17h shorter than the JVC GZ-RY980H (5h) and 2.92h shorter than the Sony HXRMC2500E (4.75h). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

4.05h Shorter Video Recording Time

The Canon XC15 has a video recording time of 0.45, but the JVC GZ-RY980H is a 4.5h video recording time camcorder (4.05h longer). More ...

'Video Recording Time' is how long the camcorder can record uninterrupted footage before the battery needs charging or changing.

A longer video recording time means that you can record more video in a single session, and need to recharge the battery less.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon XC15 has received a Kagoo Score of 78, whereas the JVC GZ-RY980H scored 82 and the Sony HXRMC2500E scored 81.

£1,309 More Expensive

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Blackmagic Design URSA EF

Interchangeable Lens

The Blackmagic Design URSA EF has an interchangeable lens, and so does the JVC GZ-RY980H, however the Canon XC15, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E do not. 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.

Full HD

The Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a Full HD camcorder (as are the JVC GZ-RY980H, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E), however the Canon XC15 is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Larger Optical Sensor Size

The Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a 4 optical sensor size camcorder. That's 3" larger than the JVC GZ-RY980H, the Panasonic AGUX180 and the Sony HXRMC2500E (1"). More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a camcorder. The sensor is what processes the light from the lens and transfers it into a digital image.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality results, because more light can be brought into the lens at once, This leads to larger, more highly-detailed videos and photos.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.
