3 Reasons For
1.54MP higher effective megapixels (movie) Edit

1 Reason For
A lot bigger total megapixels Edit
The Sony NEX-FS700R is an 11.6MP sensor camcorder, whereas the Canon EOS C100 is only an 8.29MP sensor camcorder (3.31MP 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.
