Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.weight

2.4kg

1.55kg

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

3.45"

3.5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.height

195mm

170mm

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

180mm

160mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Has a flip-out screen
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
7.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display which shows the framed image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image; they can be more compact; it's easier to focus with digital zoom; and they sometimes offer extra info on the display (such as a live histogram).
8.resolution

1280 x 720px

1920 x 1080px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

1080 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
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

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 CMOS sensor
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
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.
3.has manual ISO
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
This allows you to manually set the ISO level.
4.has built-in optical image stabilization
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
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
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
This allows you to manually set the exposure.
6.has manual white balance
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
8.has a built-in HDR mode
Panasonic AG-AC160A
Panasonic HC-X1000
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
