Reasons For

2 Reasons For
10.62MP bigger total megapixels Edit
Panasonic HC-VX870 is 18.91MP sensor (as does the Panasonic HC-VX980), but the Panasonic HC-W850 is only a 12.76MP sensor camcorder (6.15MP smaller) and the Sony FDR-AX53 is only an 8.29MP sensor camcorder (10.62MP 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.

Panasonic HC-VX870 is 8.29MP (movie mode) (as do the Panasonic HC-VX980 and the Sony FDR-AX53), but the Panasonic HC-W850 is only a 6.03MP (movie mode) camcorder (2.26MP lower).
