Price comparison

Design

1.has a touch screen
JVC GY-HMQ10
Panasonic HC-PV100
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.weight

1.7kg

1.5kg

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.
3.screen size

3.5"

3"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
JVC GY-HMQ10
Panasonic HC-PV100
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
5.thickness

271mm

170mm

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.
6.width

139mm

335mm

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

Optics

1.megapixels (main camera)

8.3MP

6MP

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
