Reasons For

JVC GY-HM200 JVC GY-LS300
4 Reasons For
Image Stabilizer
The JVC GY-HM200 has an image stabilizer, whereas the JVC GY-LS300 does not have an image stabilizer.

This denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Read more Read less | Edit
Hugely Lighter
The JVC GY-HM200 has a weight of 1.6kg, but the JVC GY-LS300 is a 3.8kg camcorder (2.2kg heavier).

This denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

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

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper by $845
The JVC GY-HM200 costs $1,650.00, whereas the JVC GY-LS300 is $2,495.00.
More Shops Are Selling it

2 Reasons For
Interchangeable Lens
The JVC GY-LS300 has an interchangeable lens, however the JVC GY-HM200 does not have an interchangeable lens.

The lens in the device can be swapped round.

An interchangeable lens system allows the user to use alternative lenses which might be better suited for a shoot than a standard lens.

Read more Read less | Edit
Moderately Bigger Total Megapixels
The JVC GY-LS300 has a total megapixels of 13.5MP, but the JVC GY-HM200 is only a 12.4MP camcorder (1.1MP 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.
