Reasons For

4 Reasons For
A lot bigger total megapixels Edit
Vivitar DVR786 is 12MP sensor, but the Vivitar DVR936 is only an 8MP sensor camcorder (4MP 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.

25% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Vivitar DVR786 has a digital zoom of 4x. That's 1x bigger than the Vivitar DVR936 (3x). Read more

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.
