Reasons For

Panasonic HC-V770 Sony FDR-AX33
6 Reasons For
10x Bigger Optical Zoom
The Panasonic HC-V770 has an optical zoom of 20x, whereas the Sony FDR-AX33 is only a 10x optical zoom camcorder (10x smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bigger Digital Zoom
The Panasonic HC-V770 has a digital zoom of 1,500x. That's 1,380x bigger than the Sony FDR-AX33 (120x).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Panasonic HC-V770 is 752mm maximum focal length. That's 454mm longer than the Sony FDR-AX33 (298mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camcorder is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Read more Read less | Edit
99% Lighter
The Panasonic HC-V770 is a 353g camcorder. That's 347g lighter than the Sony FDR-AX33 (700g).

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
$40 Cheaper
The Panasonic HC-V770 is $39.96 cheaper than the Sony FDR-AX33.
User Reviews Are Better
The average user review score of the Panasonic HC-V770 is 89%, whereas the average rating of the Sony FDR-AX33 is 83% (based on 753 reviews).
9 Reasons For
11% Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Sony FDR-AX33 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 26.8mm, however the Panasonic HC-V770 is a 29.5mm minimum focal length camcorder (2.7mm longer).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camcorder can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels
The Sony FDR-AX33 has a total megapixels of 20.6MP, however the Panasonic HC-V770 is only a 12.76MP camcorder (7.84MP 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Effective Megapixels (image)
The Sony FDR-AX33 is a 10.3MP camcorder. That's 4.27MP higher than the Panasonic HC-V770 (6.03MP).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Higher Effective Megapixels (movie)
The Sony FDR-AX33 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 8.29MP, however the Panasonic HC-V770 is only a 6.03MP (movie mode) camcorder (2.26MP lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit

The Sony FDR-AX33 has a built-in flash, but the Panasonic HC-V770 does not have a built-in flash.

This denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.
