Reasons For

Canon Vixia HF R62 Panasonic HC-V770 Panasonic HC-W570
3 Reasons For
A Lot Lighter
The Canon Vixia HF R62 has a weight of 240g, however the Panasonic HC-V770 is a 353g camcorder (113g heavier) and the Panasonic HC-W570 is a 266g camcorder (26g heavier).

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Better User Reviews
Based on 200 user reviews, the Canon Vixia HF R62 has an average review score of 88%, however the Panasonic HC-W570 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review).
Better Brand
Canon camcorders have an average rating of 83.1%, whereas Panasonic has an average rating of 72.8%.
4 Reasons For
1,350x Bigger Digital Zoom
The Panasonic HC-V770 has a digital zoom of 1,500x, however the Canon Vixia HF R62 is only a 1,140x (digital) camcorder (360x smaller) and the Panasonic HC-W570 is only a 150x (digital) camcorder (1,350x smaller).

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.

Bigger Total Megapixels
The Panasonic HC-V770 is a 12.76MP camcorder. That's 9.48MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R62 (3.28MP) and 10.25MP bigger than the Panasonic HC-W570 (2.51MP).

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.

3.96MP Higher Effective Megapixels (image)
The Panasonic HC-V770 has an effective megapixels (image) of 6.03MP, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R62 is only a 2.07MP camcorder (3.96MP lower) and the Panasonic HC-W570 is only a 2.2MP camcorder (3.83MP lower).

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Higher Effective Megapixels (movie)
Panasonic HC-V770 is 6.03MP (movie mode). That's 3.96MP higher than the Canon Vixia HF R62 (2.07MP) and 3.83MP higher than the Panasonic HC-W570 (2.2MP).

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

4 Reasons For
60% Bigger Optical Zoom
The Panasonic HC-W570 is a 50x optical zoom camcorder. That's 18x bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R62 (32x) and 30x bigger than the Panasonic HC-V770 (20x).

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number
Panasonic HC-W570 is 4.2 maximum aperture value. That's 0.6 higher than the Panasonic HC-V770 (3.6).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Key Features

Optical Zoom

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

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.

Total Megapixels

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.

Optical Sensor Size

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a camcorder. The sensor is what processes the light from the lens and transfers it into a digital image.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality results, because more light can be brought into the lens at once, This leads to larger, more highly-detailed videos and photos.

Weight

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.
