Price comparison

Design

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.has a touch screen
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
3.weight

1.04kg

1.16kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.thickness

122mm

95.6mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.volume

1891.49cm³

865.77cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.height

102mm

99.3mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

2772 x 60fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.Has timelapse function
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
6.has a serial shot mode
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.

Optics

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.has a brand lens
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
3.has manual ISO
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
This allows you to manually set the ISO level.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
5.has manual exposure
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
This allows you to manually set the exposure.
6.has a CMOS sensor
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.has a stereo microphone
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.Has a zoom microphone
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.has stereo speakers
Canon XC10
Z-Cam E2-M4
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
