Reasons For

JVC GY-HM200 Sony FDR-AX53
2 Reasons For
A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels
The JVC GY-HM200 has a total megapixels of 12.4MP, however the Sony FDR-AX53 is only an 8.29MP camcorder (4.11MP 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.

8 Reasons For
A Lot 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
96% Bigger Digital Zoom
The Sony FDR-AX53 has a digital zoom of 250x. That's 238x bigger than the JVC GY-HM200 (12x).

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.

47% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Sony FDR-AX53 is 656mm maximum focal length. That's 302mm longer than the JVC GY-HM200 (354mm).

'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
Two Times Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Sony FDR-AX53 is 10mm minimum focal length, but the JVC GY-HM200 is a 29.5mm minimum focal length camcorder (19.5mm 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
915g Lighter

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.

Weight

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

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