Price comparison




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.
2.screen size


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


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.


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


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


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


1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 50fps

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.supports AVCHD format
Panasonic HC-PV100
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
3.movie bitrate


The higher the movie recording bitrate the better the movie quality with more and crispier details and less compression artifacts.


1.megapixels (main camera)


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
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.

Panasonic HC-PV100
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
4.has built-in optical image stabilization
Panasonic HC-PV100
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 a CMOS sensor
Panasonic HC-PV100
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.
6.has manual exposure
