Reasons For

2 Reasons For
1.01MP bigger sensor size Edit
The Panasonic AG-HCK10 has a sensor size of 2.51MPMP, however the Panasonic HDC-TM41 is only a 1.5MPMP sensor camcorder (1.01MP smaller). Read more

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.
