19 Reasons For for Choosing the JVC GZRY980HEU

7.3kg Lighter

The JVC GZRY980HEU is a 58 camcorder. That's 7.3kg lighter than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF (7.4kg), 897g lighter than the Canon XC15 (955g), 1.5kg lighter than the Panasonic HCX1000E (1.6kg) and 2.2kg lighter than the Sony PXW-Z190V (2.3kg). More ...

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

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

50% Bigger Digital Zoom

The JVC GZRY980HEU has a digital zoom of 200. That's 198x bigger than the Canon XC15 (2x) and 190x bigger than the Panasonic HCX1000E (10x). 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 GZRY980HEU has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V, 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.

Interchangeable Lens

The JVC GZRY980HEU has an interchangeable lens (as does the Blackmagic Design URSA EF), however the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V do not have this feature. 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 JVC GZRY980HEU is Full HD, and so are the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Panasonic HCX1000E, however the Canon XC15 and the Sony PXW-Z190V are 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.

34% Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The JVC GZRY980HEU is a 120 camcorder. That's 60fps faster than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF (60fps) and 60.06fps faster than the Sony PXW-Z190V (59.94fps). 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.

27% Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The JVC GZRY980HEU is a 14 camcorder. That's 2MP higher than the Canon XC15 (12MP) and 5.15MP higher than the Panasonic HCX1000E (8.85MP). 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 GZRY980HEU has a face detection, and so does the Sony PXW-Z190V, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic HCX1000E do not. 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 GZRY980HEU supports remote operation, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V do not support this feature. 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 GZRY980HEU has a built-in microphone (as do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V), 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 JVC GZRY980HEU supports HDMI, and so do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V, 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 JVC GZRY980HEU features Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V, 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.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The JVC GZRY980HEU supports Near Field Communication (NFC), and so do the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Canon XC15 do not. 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 GZRY980HEU supports bluetooth, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V do not support this feature. More ...

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

Longer Maximum Battery Life

The JVC GZRY980HEU has a maximum battery life of 5. That's 3.17h longer than the Canon XC15 (1.83h). 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 Longer Video Recording Time

The JVC GZRY980HEU has a video recording time of 4.5, but the Canon XC15 is only a 0.45h video recording time camcorder (4.05h shorter). 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 GZRY980HEU is waterproof, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V 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 GZRY980HEU has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF scored only 67, the Canon XC15 scored 79 and the Sony PXW-Z190V scored 77.

£848 Cheaper

The JVC GZRY980HEU is £2,122.24 cheaper than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, £1,297.81 cheaper than the Canon XC15, £847.81 cheaper than the Panasonic HCX1000E and £2,462.81 cheaper than the Sony PXW-Z190V.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the JVC GZRY980HEU

Significantly Smaller Optical Zoom

The JVC GZRY980HEU has an optical zoom of 10 (as does the Canon XC15), whereas the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 20x optical zoom camcorder (10x bigger) and the Sony PXW-Z190V is a 25x optical zoom camcorder (15x 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.

0.010000000000002MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The JVC GZRY980HEU has a total megapixels of 18.9, but the Canon XC15 is a 13.36MP camcorder (5.54MP smaller) and the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 18.91MP camcorder (0.010000000000002MP 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 JVC GZRY980HEU has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Panasonic HCX1000E), however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15 and the Sony PXW-Z190V have a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) 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.

19% Higher Minimum Aperture Number

The JVC GZRY980HEU has a minimum aperture number of 1.8, however the Canon XC15 is a 2.8 minimum aperture camcorder (1 higher) and the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V are both 1.6 minimum aperture camcorders (0.2 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 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.

Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

JVC GZRY980HEU is 40.5 minimum focal length, but the Canon XC15 is a 500mm minimum focal length camcorder (459.5mm longer), the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 30mm minimum focal length camcorder (10.5mm shorter) and the Sony PXW-Z190V is a 28.8mm minimum focal length camcorder (11.7mm 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The JVC GZRY980HEU has a maximum aperture number of 2.8, however the Canon XC15 is a 5.6 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.8 higher), the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (1 lower) and the Sony PXW-Z190V is an 11 maximum aperture value camcorder (8.2 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 JVC GZRY980HEU has an optical sensor size of 1 (as do the Canon XC15, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V), 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.

5.94MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

JVC GZRY980HEU is only 2.91 (movie mode), but the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic HCX1000E are both 8.85MP (movie mode) camcorders (5.94MP higher). 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 GZRY980HEU does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Canon XC15), however the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V have 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 JVC GZRY980HEU is a 3 screen size camcorder (as does the Canon XC15), whereas the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V are both 3.5" screen size camcorders (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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The JVC GZRY980HEU supports a still image resolution of 1440 x 1080, whereas the Panasonic HCX1000E supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Sony PXW-Z190V support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 retailer sell the JVC GZRY980HEU, but 2 sellers sell the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, 2 shops sell the Canon XC15, 3 sellers sell the Panasonic HCX1000E and 2 sellers sell the Sony PXW-Z190V. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this camcorder, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
One Month Older

The JVC GZRY980HEU is older than the Canon XC15 by one month. The JVC GZRY980HEU is the same age as the Sony PXW-Z190V.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon XC15

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Canon XC15 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so are the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Sony PXW-Z190V, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon XC15 has an image stabilizer (as do the JVC GZRY980HEU, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V), but 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Canon XC15 has a built-in microphone, and so do the JVC GZRY980HEU, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V, but 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 Canon XC15 supports HDMI (as do the JVC GZRY980HEU, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V), however 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 Canon XC15 features Wi-Fi (as do the JVC GZRY980HEU, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V), however 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.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon XC15

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Canon XC15 is a 10 optical zoom camcorder, and so does the JVC GZRY980HEU. That's 10x smaller than the Panasonic HCX1000E (20x) and 15x smaller than the Sony PXW-Z190V (25x). 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.

897g Heavier

The Canon XC15 has a weight of 955, however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a 7.4kg camcorder (6.4kg heavier), the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 58g camcorder (897g lighter), the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 1.6kg camcorder (595g heavier) and the Sony PXW-Z190V is a 2.3kg camcorder (1.3kg 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.

30% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon XC15 is a 13.36 camcorder. That's 5.55MP smaller than the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E (18.91MP). 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.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

Canon XC15 is only 2 (digital), but the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 200x (digital) camcorder (198x bigger) and the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 10x (digital) camcorder (8x bigger). 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.

Higher Minimum Aperture Number

Canon XC15 is 2.8 minimum aperture. That's 1.2 higher than the JVC GZRY980HEU, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V (1.6). 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.

Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

The Canon XC15 is a 500 minimum focal length camcorder. That's 459.5mm longer than the JVC GZRY980HEU (40.5mm), 470mm longer than the Panasonic HCX1000E (30mm) and 471.2mm longer than the Sony PXW-Z190V (28.8mm). 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.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Canon XC15 is only 5.6 maximum aperture value. That's 2.8 higher than the JVC GZRY980HEU (2.8), 3.8 higher than the Panasonic HCX1000E (1.8) and 5.4 lower than the Sony PXW-Z190V (11). 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.

75% Smaller Optical Sensor Size

The Canon XC15 is a 1 optical sensor size camcorder, and so do the JVC GZRY980HEU, the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V. 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.

15% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon XC15 has an effective megapixels (image) of 12, however the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 14MP camcorder (2MP higher) and the Panasonic HCX1000E is an 8.85MP camcorder (3.15MP 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.

7% Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon XC15 is an 8.29 (movie mode) camcorder. That's 5.38MP higher than the JVC GZRY980HEU (2.91MP) and 0.56MP lower than the Panasonic HCX1000E (8.85MP). 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 and the JVC GZRY980HEU), but the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V do. 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.

15% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Canon XC15 has a display diagonal of 3, and so does the JVC GZRY980HEU. That's 0.5" smaller than the Panasonic HCX1000E and the Sony PXW-Z190V (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.

3.17h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Canon XC15 is only 1.83 battery life, but the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 5h battery life camcorder (3.17h longer). 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.

90% Shorter Video Recording Time

The Canon XC15 is a 0.45 video recording time camcorder. That's 4.05h shorter than the JVC GZRY980HEU (4.5h). 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 79, however the JVC GZRY980HEU scored 80 and the Panasonic HCX1000E scored 80.

More Expensive by £1,298

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

84% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Panasonic HCX1000E has a maximum aperture number of 1.8. That's 3.8 lower than the Canon XC15 (5.6), 1 lower than the JVC GZRY980HEU (2.8) and 9.2 lower than the Sony PXW-Z190V (11). 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 Panasonic HCX1000E is a 1 optical sensor size camcorder, and so do the Canon XC15, the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Sony PXW-Z190V. 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.

5.15MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Panasonic HCX1000E has an effective megapixels (image) of 8.85, whereas the Canon XC15 is a 12MP camcorder (3.15MP higher) and the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 14MP camcorder (5.15MP higher). 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.

More Expensive by £848

The Panasonic HCX1000E is £848 more expensive than the JVC GZRY980HEU.

Older by Over Three Years

The Panasonic HCX1000E is four years older than the Canon XC15, four years older than the JVC GZRY980HEU and four years older than the Sony PXW-Z190V.

Expert Review Rating is a Bit Worse

The average expert rating of the Panasonic HCX1000E is only 78%, whereas the average expert rating of the Canon XC15 is 82% (based on 5 reviews).

User Review Rating is Significantly Worse

The average user rating of the Panasonic HCX1000E is only 60%, whereas the average user rating of the Canon XC15 is 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Panasonic camcorders have an average rating of only 90.5%, but Canon has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 93.7%.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony PXW-Z190V

Bigger Optical Zoom

The Sony PXW-Z190V is a 25 optical zoom camcorder. That's 15x bigger than the Canon XC15 and the JVC GZRY980HEU (10x) and 5x bigger than the Panasonic HCX1000E (20x). 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.

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so are the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Canon XC15, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Sony PXW-Z190V has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon XC15, the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E), however 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.

Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony PXW-Z190V is 28.8 minimum focal length. That's 471.2mm shorter than the Canon XC15 (500mm), 11.7mm shorter than the JVC GZRY980HEU (40.5mm) and 1.2mm shorter than the Panasonic HCX1000E (30mm). 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.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a maximum aperture number of 11. That's 5.4 higher than the Canon XC15 (5.6), 8.2 higher than the JVC GZRY980HEU (2.8) and 9.2 higher than the Panasonic HCX1000E (1.8). 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 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.

Face Detection

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a face detection (as does the JVC GZRY980HEU), whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, the Canon XC15 and the Panasonic HCX1000E 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.

0.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Sony PXW-Z190V is a 3.5 screen size camcorder, and so does the Panasonic HCX1000E. That's 0.5" larger than the Canon XC15 and the JVC GZRY980HEU (3"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

Built-in Microphone

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a built-in microphone, and so do the Canon XC15, the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E, however 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 Sony PXW-Z190V supports HDMI (as do the Canon XC15, the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E), whereas 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 Sony PXW-Z190V features Wi-Fi (as do the Canon XC15, the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E), whereas 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 Sony PXW-Z190V supports Near Field Communication (NFC) (as do the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E), however the Blackmagic Design URSA EF and the Canon XC15 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.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony PXW-Z190V

2.2kg Heavier

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a weight of 2.3, whereas the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a 7.4kg camcorder (5.1kg heavier), the Canon XC15 is a 955g camcorder (1.3kg lighter), the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 58g camcorder (2.2kg lighter) and the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 1.6kg camcorder (750g lighter). More ...

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

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

Significantly Shorter Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony PXW-Z190V is only 720 maximum focal length, but the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 1,620mm maximum focal length camcorder (900mm longer) and the Panasonic HCX1000E is a 600mm maximum focal length camcorder (120mm 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 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.

12% Higher Minimum Aperture Number

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a minimum aperture number of 1.6. That's 1.2 lower than the Canon XC15 (2.8) and 0.2 higher than the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E (1.4). 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 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.

Hugely Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Sony PXW-Z190V has a maximum frame rate of 59.94, but the Blackmagic Design URSA EF is a 60fps camcorder (0.060000000000002fps faster) and the JVC GZRY980HEU is a 120fps camcorder (60.06fps faster). 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.

75% Smaller Optical Sensor Size

The Sony PXW-Z190V is a 1 optical sensor size camcorder, and so do the Canon XC15, the JVC GZRY980HEU and the Panasonic HCX1000E. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony PXW-Z190V has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Canon XC15 scored 79, the JVC GZRY980HEU scored 80 and the Panasonic HCX1000E scored 80.

More Expensive by £2,463

The Sony PXW-Z190V is £341 more expensive than the Blackmagic Design URSA EF, £1,165 more expensive than the Canon XC15, £2,463 more expensive than the JVC GZRY980HEU and £1,615 more expensive than the Panasonic HCX1000E.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony PXW-Z190V is only stocked by 2 sellers, but the Panasonic HCX1000E is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by One Month

The Sony PXW-Z190V is one month older than the Canon XC15. The Sony PXW-Z190V is the same age as the JVC GZRY980HEU.

Worse Brand

Sony camcorders have an average rating of only 93.7%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PXW-Z190V in the UK is £3,114.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
