Panasonic HCV180EBK is 500 (digital). That's 180x bigger than the Sony HDR-CX240 (320x).

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.

43% Bigger Total Megapixels
The Sony HDR-CX240 is a 9.2 camcorder. That's 6.69MP bigger than the Panasonic HCV180EBK (2.51MP).

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.

A Lot Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)
The Sony HDR-CX240 has an effective megapixels (image) of 9.2, but the Panasonic HCV180EBK is only a 1.67MP camcorder (7.53MP lower).

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
Face Detection
The Sony HDR-CX240 has a face detection, but the Panasonic HCV180EBK does not have this feature.

'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
Smile Detection
The Sony HDR-CX240 features smile detection, but the Panasonic HCV180EBK does not feature this benefit.

Smile detection is a system to automatically detect when people in the camcorder's shot are smiling, and pull focus towards them to make sure they're always in full focus.

4032 X 2272 Still Image Resolution
The Sony HDR-CX240 supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 2272, but the Panasonic HCV180EBK supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD).

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.
