Reasons For

Panasonic AG-DVX200 Panasonic AG-UX180
5 Reasons For
A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels
The Panasonic AG-DVX200 has a total megapixels of 15.49MP, however the Panasonic AG-UX180 is only a 9.46MP camcorder (6.03MP 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.

Significantly Larger Optical Sensor Size
The Panasonic AG-DVX200 has an optical sensor size of 4/3", whereas the Panasonic AG-UX180 is only a 1" optical sensor size camcorder (3" smaller).

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 Lot Higher Effective Megapixels (movie)
The Panasonic AG-DVX200 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 15.49MP, however the Panasonic AG-UX180 is only an 8.79MP (movie mode) camcorder (6.7MP 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.

Larger Display Diagonal
Panasonic AG-DVX200 is 4.3" screen size, but the Panasonic AG-UX180 is only a 3.5" screen size camcorder (0.8" smaller).

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

5 Reasons For
35% Bigger Optical Zoom
The Panasonic AG-UX180 is a 20x optical zoom camcorder. That's 7x bigger than the Panasonic AG-DVX200 (13x).

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
20x Bigger Digital Zoom
The Panasonic AG-UX180 has a digital zoom of 30x, however the Panasonic AG-DVX200 is only a 10x (digital) camcorder (20x 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
Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Panasonic AG-UX180 is 24mm minimum focal length. That's 4mm shorter than the Panasonic AG-DVX200 (28mm).

'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
300g Lighter
The Panasonic AG-UX180 has a weight of 2.4kg, whereas the Panasonic AG-DVX200 is a 2.7kg camcorder (300g heavier).

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

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