Reasons For

Canon Legria HF R78 Sony HDRPJ410
6 Reasons For
A Little Bigger Optical Zoom
The Canon Legria HF R78 has an optical zoom of 32x, however the Sony HDRPJ410 is only a 30x optical zoom camcorder (2x smaller).

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
70% Bigger Digital Zoom
Canon Legria HF R78 is 1,140x (digital). That's 790x bigger than the Sony HDRPJ410 (350x).

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
47% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Canon Legria HF R78 is a 1,853mm maximum focal length camcorder. That's 869mm longer than the Sony HDRPJ410 (984mm).

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Maximum Aperture Number
Canon Legria HF R78 is 4.5 maximum aperture value, but the Sony HDRPJ410 is only a 4 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.5 lower).

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.

A Little Larger Display Diagonal
The Canon Legria HF R78 has a display diagonal of 3", however the Sony HDRPJ410 is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.3" smaller).

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

Read more Read less | Edit
Longer Maximum Battery Life
Canon Legria HF R78 is 2.9h battery life. That's 1.9h longer than the Sony HDRPJ410 (1h).

This 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
9 Reasons For
5.7mm Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Sony HDRPJ410 is a 26.8mm minimum focal length camcorder, whereas the Canon Legria HF R78 is a 32.5mm minimum focal length camcorder (5.7mm longer).

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Significantly Bigger Total Megapixels
The Sony HDRPJ410 has a total megapixels of 9.2MP, whereas the Canon Legria HF R78 is only a 3.28MP camcorder (5.92MP smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Effective Megapixels (image)
The Sony HDRPJ410 is a 2.29MP camcorder. That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Legria HF R78 (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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Slightly Higher Effective Megapixels (movie)
The Sony HDRPJ410 is a 2.29MP (movie mode) camcorder, whereas the Canon Legria HF R78 is only a 2.07MP (movie mode) camcorder (0.22MP lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
15% Lighter
The Sony HDRPJ410 is a 210g camcorder. That's 30g lighter than the Canon Legria HF R78 (240g).

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

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

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.

Display Diagonal

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

Maximum Battery Life

This 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.

Weight
