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 BSI sensor
Canon XF100
Panasonic HC-PV100
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

Canon XF100
Panasonic HC-PV100
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
