Price comparison

Design

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.
3.height

59.5mm

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

431.91cm³

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

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
7.has an accelerometer
Sony HDR-CX330
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.

Videography

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.
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 BSI sensor
Sony HDR-CX330
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
Sony HDR-CX330
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.
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.
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.
7.has manual focus
Sony HDR-CX330
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.
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Sony HDR-CX330
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

Battery

1.has a removable battery
Sony HDR-CX330
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

The device comes with a built-in USB male connector and doesn't need a separate USB cable to connect with the computer.
2.has NFC
Sony HDR-CX330
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions, such as mobile payments. Note: this feature may not be available in all markets.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
