Sony PXWFS5 Sony PXWZ150
5 Reasons For
Lighter
The Sony PXWFS5 is an 830 camcorder. That's 1.1kg lighter than the Sony PXWZ150 (1.9kg).

'Weight' 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
Interchangeable Lens
The Sony PXWFS5 has an interchangeable lens, but the Sony PXWZ150 does not have this feature.

The lens in the device can be swapped round.

An interchangeable lens system allows the user to use alternative lenses which might be better suited for a shoot than a standard lens.

Read more Read less | Edit
3" Larger Optical Sensor Size
The Sony PXWFS5 has an optical sensor size of 4, but the Sony PXWZ150 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Remote Operation
The Sony PXWFS5 supports remote operation, whereas the Sony PXWZ150 does not support this feature.

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.
