10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

50% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32 optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Zoom Q2N (1x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an image stabilizer (as do the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W), but the GoPro HERO4 and the Zoom Q2N do not have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

30fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a maximum frame rate of 60, whereas the Zoom Q2N is only a 30fps camcorder (30fps slower). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

0.39m Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01, but the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N are both 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorders (0.35m bigger). More ...

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

34% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a display diagonal of 3. That's 1.23" larger than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N (1.77"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

HDMI

The Canon Vixia HF R800 supports HDMI (as do the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N), however the GoPro HERO4 and the Sony HDRAS300W do not support this feature. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the GoPro HERO4 scored 88, the Nikon Keymission 170 scored 87, the Sony HDRAS300W scored 89 and the Zoom Q2N scored 89.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.

Newer by Three Months

The Canon Vixia HF R800 was released four years after the GoPro HERO4, released three months after the Nikon Keymission 170 and released three months after the Sony HDRAS300W

Better Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of 95%, whereas GoPro only has an average rating of 90.5%, Nikon only has an average rating of 75.9%, Sony only has an average rating of 94.2% and Zoom only has an average rating of 82%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

A Lot Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a weight of 235, however the GoPro HERO4 is a 110g camcorder (125g lighter), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (100.5g lighter), the Sony HDRAS300W is a 107g camcorder (128g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (145g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28 camcorder. That's 8.72MP smaller than the GoPro HERO4 (12MP), 5.29MP smaller than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W (8.57MP) and 0.28MP bigger than the Zoom Q2N (3MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony HDRAS300W and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO4 and the Nikon Keymission 170 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 2.07 (movie mode) camcorder. That's 9.93MP lower than the GoPro HERO4 (12MP). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Zoom Q2N), but the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W do. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

More Expensive by $70

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is $70 more expensive than the Nikon Keymission 170 and $22 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800's average expert score is only 70%, however the GoPro HERO4's is 85% (based on 30 reviews) and the Nikon Keymission 170's is 74% (based on 19 reviews).

User Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800's average user score is 89%, however the GoPro HERO4's is 93% (based on 392 reviews) and the Sony HDRAS300W's is 93% (based on 12 reviews).

The cheapest price that we could find for the Vixia HF R800 in the US is $170.00 and in total we found 26 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDRAS300W has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Nikon Keymission 170), whereas the GoPro HERO4 and the Zoom Q2N do not have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

0.8 Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRAS300W is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder, and so does the Nikon Keymission 170. That's 0.8 higher than the Zoom Q2N (2). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRAS300W supports remote operation, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N do not. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

Built-in Microphone

The Sony HDRAS300W has a built-in microphone, and so do the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the GoPro HERO4 do not. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

Wi-Fi

The Sony HDRAS300W features Wi-Fi (as does the Nikon Keymission 170), but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO4 and the Zoom Q2N do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

Bluetooth

The Sony HDRAS300W supports bluetooth, and so does the Nikon Keymission 170, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO4 and the Zoom Q2N do not. More ...

'Bluetooth' indicates whether the camcorder supports bluetooth, a communication protocol frequently used with accessories such as wireless flash units.

Waterproof

The Sony HDRAS300W is a waterproof camcorder (as is the Nikon Keymission 170), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO4 and the Zoom Q2N are not. More ...

'Waterproof' denotes whether the camcorder is resistant against liquid - so can be safely immersed in water without causing problems.

Waterproof cameras allow you to safely take your camera out on a boat or to the beach without worrying about damage. It also allows for some visually stunning underwater videos!

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 12 reviews, the Sony HDRAS300W has an average user review score of 93%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews), the Nikon Keymission 170 has an average rating of 75% (based on 24 reviews) and the Zoom Q2N has an average rating of 87% (based on 71 reviews).

Marginally Better Overall Reviews

Based on 18 reviews, the Sony HDRAS300W has an average overall review score of 93%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average rating of 76% (based on 26 reviews), the GoPro HERO4 has an average rating of 90% (based on 422 reviews), the Nikon Keymission 170 has an average rating of 75% (based on 43 reviews) and the Zoom Q2N has an average rating of 87% (based on 71 reviews).

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRAS300W is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Heavier

The Sony HDRAS300W has a weight of 107, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (128g heavier), the GoPro HERO4 is a 110g camcorder (3g heavier), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (27.5g heavier) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (17g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

29% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRAS300W is an 8.57 camcorder. That's 5.57MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 3.43MP smaller than the GoPro HERO4 (12MP) and 0.27MP bigger than the Nikon Keymission 170 (8.3MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Sony HDRAS300W has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO4 and the Nikon Keymission 170 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

1h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Sony HDRAS300W is a 2 battery life camcorder, whereas the Zoom Q2N is a 3h battery life camcorder (1h longer). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRAS300W has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 90.

More Expensive by $198

The Sony HDRAS300W is $128 more expensive than the Canon Vixia HF R800, $91 more expensive than the GoPro HERO4, $198 more expensive than the Nikon Keymission 170 and $150 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Not As Many Stockists

The Sony HDRAS300W is only stocked by 5 stores, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 26 sellers, the Nikon Keymission 170 is stocked by 9 stores and the Zoom Q2N is stocked by 8 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.
Older by Three Months

The Sony HDRAS300W is three months older than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and three months older than the Zoom Q2N. The Sony HDRAS300W is the same age as the Nikon Keymission 170.

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 16.4% of 67 customers recommend the Sony HDRAS300W, however 85.1% of 422 customers recommend the GoPro HERO4.

Worse Brand

Sony camcorders have an average rating of only 94.2%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

Worse Great Video Quality

On average reviewers thought the Sony HDRAS300W was worse great video quality.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HDRAS300W in the US is $297.99 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

62% Lighter

The Zoom Q2N is a 90 camcorder. That's 145g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 20g lighter than the GoPro HERO4 (110g), 44.5g lighter than the Nikon Keymission 170 (134.5g) and 17g lighter than the Sony HDRAS300W (107g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Full HD

The Zoom Q2N is Full HD, and so is the GoPro HERO4, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W are not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Built-in Microphone

The Zoom Q2N has a built-in microphone (as do the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the GoPro HERO4 do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

HDMI

The Zoom Q2N supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Nikon Keymission 170, but the GoPro HERO4 and the Sony HDRAS300W do not. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

1h Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Zoom Q2N is a 3 battery life camcorder. That's 1h longer than the Sony HDRAS300W (2h). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W), but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (31x bigger). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Vastly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N has a total megapixels of 3, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28MP camcorder (0.28MP bigger), the GoPro HERO4 is a 12MP camcorder (9MP bigger) and the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W are both 8.57MP camcorders (5.57MP bigger). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Zoom Q2N has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRAS300W), whereas the GoPro HERO4 and the Nikon Keymission 170 have a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Zoom Q2N does not have an image stabilizer, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

0.8 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Zoom Q2N is a 2 maximum aperture value camcorder, whereas the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W are both 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorders (0.8 higher). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N is a 30 camcorder. That's 30fps slower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (60fps). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Zoom Q2N is a 0.36 closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.04m smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Nikon Keymission 170 (0.4m). More ...

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Zoom Q2N does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Canon Vixia HF R800), whereas the GoPro HERO4, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W have this feature. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

1.23" Smaller Display Diagonal

Zoom Q2N is only 1.77 screen size, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3" screen size camcorder (1.23" larger) and the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 1.5" screen size camcorder (0.27" smaller). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 90.

$49 More Expensive

The Zoom Q2N is more expensive than the Nikon Keymission 170 by $49.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 8 retailers sells the Zoom Q2N, however 26 sellers sell the Canon Vixia HF R800 and 9 sellers sell the Nikon Keymission 170. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this camcorder remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Lower User Review Score

The Zoom Q2N has an average user rating of 87%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO4 has an average user rating of 93% (based on 392 reviews) and the Sony HDRAS300W has an average user rating of 93% (based on 12 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The Zoom Q2N has an average overall rating of 87%, but the GoPro HERO4 has an average overall rating of 90% (based on 422 reviews) and the Sony HDRAS300W has an average overall rating of 93% (based on 18 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 7.9% of 151 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N, however 85.1% of 422 customers recommend the GoPro HERO4, 10.7% of 84 customers recommend the Nikon Keymission 170 and 16.4% of 67 customers recommend the Sony HDRAS300W.

Worse Brand

Zoom camcorders have an average rating of only 82%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, GoPro has an average rating of 90.5% and Sony has an average rating of 94.2%.

Worse Great Video Quality

On average reviewers thought the Zoom Q2N was worse great video quality.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Q2N in the US is $148.49 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO4

Bigger Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO4 is a 12 camcorder. That's 9MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP) and 3.43MP bigger than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W (8.57MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The GoPro HERO4 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so is the Nikon Keymission 170, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Zoom Q2N (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Full HD

The GoPro HERO4 is a Full HD camcorder (as is the Zoom Q2N), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W are not. More ...

Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The GoPro HERO4 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 12. That's 9.93MP higher than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (2.07MP). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Keymission 170

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so is the GoPro HERO4, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Zoom Q2N (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Image Stabilizer

The Nikon Keymission 170 has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRAS300W), but the GoPro HERO4 and the Zoom Q2N do not have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

Nikon Keymission 170 is 2.8 maximum aperture value, and so does the Sony HDRAS300W. That's 0.8 higher than the Zoom Q2N (2). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Nikon Keymission 170 is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO4, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Zoom Q2N. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

25% Heavier

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a weight of 134.5, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (100.5g heavier), the GoPro HERO4 is a 110g camcorder (24.5g lighter), the Sony HDRAS300W is a 107g camcorder (27.5g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (44.5g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Smaller Total Megapixels

The Nikon Keymission 170 is an 8.3 camcorder. That's 5.3MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 3.7MP smaller than the GoPro HERO4 (12MP) and 0.27MP smaller than the Sony HDRAS300W (8.57MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

0.39m Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a closest focusing distance of 0.4, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N are both 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorders (0.04m smaller). More ...

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

50% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a display diagonal of 1.5. That's 1.5" smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3") and 0.27" smaller than the Zoom Q2N (1.77"). More ...
