Reasons For

Canon Legria HF R76 Sony HDR-CX405
5 Reasons For
7% Bigger Optical Zoom

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
790x Bigger Digital Zoom
Canon Legria HF R76 is 1,140x (digital), but the Sony HDR-CX405 is only a 350x (digital) camcorder (790x smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bigger Total Megapixels
The Canon Legria HF R76 is a 3.28MP camcorder. That's 0.99MP bigger than the Sony HDR-CX405 (2.29MP).

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.

10% Larger Display Diagonal
The Canon Legria HF R76 has a display diagonal of 3". That's 0.3" larger than the Sony HDR-CX405 (2.7").

9 Reasons For
10% Higher Effective Megapixels (image)
The Sony HDR-CX405 is a 2.29MP camcorder. That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Legria HF R76 (2.07MP).

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.

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

Optical Sensor Size

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.

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

Built-in Microphone
