Price comparison

Design

1.has a touch screen
Panasonic HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.weight

1.5kg

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

170mm

315mm

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.height

170mm

170mm

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

335mm

160mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.Has a flip-out screen
Panasonic HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
8.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Panasonic HC-PV100
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).

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 50fps

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 HC-PV100
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 HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.movie bitrate

50Mbps

200Mbps

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

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 BSI sensor
Panasonic HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
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.
3.has a CMOS sensor
Panasonic HC-PV100
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.
4.has built-in optical image stabilization
Panasonic HC-PV100
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 HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
This allows you to manually set the exposure.
6.has manual white balance
Panasonic HC-PV100
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 manual focus
Panasonic HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
This allows you to manually set the focus.
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Panasonic HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.has a stereo microphone
Panasonic HC-PV100

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Panasonic HC-PV100
Panasonic HC-X1000
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.has stereo speakers
Panasonic HC-PV100
