Been looking at google images and couldn't manage to find a difference between the 2.

Towmaaatow, towmaeetow. One man's cloudy is another man's hazy and vise versa. Of course, I have no experience with this as all my non-wheat beers are cyrstal clear:D

Don't know that there is a difference, but I think there is desirable and undesirable cloudiness. For me, bad haze is when a cold beer is cloudy but clears up as it warms. Good or expected cloudiness is a result of dry hopping, wheat in the grain bill, or a poor flocculating yeast. In these situations cloudiness will remain with warm or cold beer.
