2 Reasons For
Moderately bigger total megapixels Edit
JVC GY-LS300 is 13.5MP sensor, but the JVC GY-HM200 is only a 12.4MP sensor camcorder (1.1MP 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.

Interchangeable lens Edit
The JVC GY-LS300 has an interchangeable lens, however the JVC GY-HM200 does not have an interchangeable lens. Read more

The lens in the device can be swapped round.
