Why isn't my HMC150 footage looking crisper?

I've been doing some shooting with an HMC150 and a Canon XA10. I watched a lot of footage this past week, and the XA10 footage just looks crisper. The colors are a bit more saturated, the blacks a bit more defined. I'm not sure why since the sensor on the HMC150 is supposed to be better.

I'm using preset scene file 6, Cine-D. Any thoughts for what I can do to change this?

I should say I called B&H yesterday and discussed this question with them. The man there said the XA10 chip is a full 1920x1080 chip while the HMC150 one is not but just scales up the resolution it does have (I realize my language is remarkably imprecise). Which leads to two questions:

1 - Is the chip actually better on the XA10?
2 - If it is, isnt that image always going to have a higher upside? The HMC-150 has many advantages, obvously, over the XA10, but in terms of image quality alone, maybe it's best isnt as good as the best of the XA10.
