5 Reasons For
2MP bigger total megapixels Edit
Sony HDR-CX130 is 3.3MP sensor, but the Coby CAM3001 is only a 1.3MP sensor camcorder (2MP 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.

99% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony HDR-CX130 has a digital zoom of 350x. That's 346x bigger than the Coby CAM3001 (350x). Read more
