Reasons For

ION Air Pro 3 WiFi ActION Sony HDR-PJ340
2 Reasons For
Bigger Total Megapixels
The ION Air Pro 3 WiFi ActION has a total megapixels of 12MP, but the Sony HDR-PJ340 is only a 9.2MP camcorder (2.8MP smaller).

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.
