Canon Legria HF R806 Panasonic HCV180EBK
16 Reasons For
0.77MP Bigger Total Megapixels
The Canon Legria HF R806 has a total megapixels of 3.28, whereas the Panasonic HCV180EBK is only a 2.51MP camcorder (0.77MP 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.

0.3 Higher Maximum Aperture Number
Canon Legria HF R806 is 4.5 maximum aperture value, but the Panasonic HCV180EBK is only a 4.2 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.3 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.

17% Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)
The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 2.07 camcorder. That's 0.4MP higher than the Panasonic HCV180EBK (1.67MP).

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
Smaller Closest Focusing Distance
The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 0.01 closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.02m smaller than the Panasonic HCV180EBK (0.03m).

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Read more Read less | Edit
Face Detection
The Canon Legria HF R806 has a face detection, however the Panasonic HCV180EBK does not.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-in Flash
The Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in flash, however the Panasonic HCV180EBK does not.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
0.3" Larger Display Diagonal
The Canon Legria HF R806 has a display diagonal of 3, however the Panasonic HCV180EBK is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.3" smaller).
