Reasons For

Sony HXR-NX100 Sony PXW-Z150
5 Reasons For
Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Sony HXR-NX100 is 426mm maximum focal length, but the Sony PXW-Z150 is only a 348mm maximum focal length camcorder (78mm shorter).

'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.

12% Longer Maximum Battery Life
The Sony HXR-NX100 has a maximum battery life of 7.42h, however the Sony PXW-Z150 is only a 6.6h battery life camcorder (0.82h shorter).

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
480g Lighter
The Sony HXR-NX100 has a weight of 1.8kg, whereas the Sony PXW-Z150 is a 2.3kg camcorder (480g heavier).

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

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

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper by £1,400
The Sony HXR-NX100 is £1,400 cheaper than the Sony PXW-Z150.
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this camcorder remaining in stock.
2 Reasons For
50% Faster Maximum Frame Rate
The Sony PXW-Z150 is a 120fps camcorder. That's 60fps faster than the Sony HXR-NX100 (60fps).

This denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

Read more Read less | Edit
5.8MP Bigger Total Megapixels
The Sony PXW-Z150 has a total megapixels of 20MP, however the Sony HXR-NX100 is only a 14.2MP camcorder (5.8MP 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.
