10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the Garmin Virb X, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W (1x) and 22x bigger than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (10x). 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.

A Lot Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a maximum frame rate of 60fps, however the Toshiba Camileo BW10 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.

Significantly Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01m, whereas the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 0.4m closest focusing distance camcorder (0.39m 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Canon Vixia HF R800 is 3" screen size. That's 1.5" larger than the Nikon Keymission 170 (1.5") and 1" larger than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (2"). 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the Garmin Virb X 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!

49% Longer Video Recording Time

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 17.33h video recording time camcorder. That's 16.17h longer than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (1.16h). More ...

'Video Recording Time' is how long the camcorder can record uninterrupted footage before the battery needs charging or changing.

A longer video recording time means that you can record more video in a single session, and need to recharge the battery less.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Garmin Virb X scored 82, the Nikon Keymission 170 scored 83, the Sony HDRAS300W scored 87 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 scored only 72.

Cheaper by $110

The Canon Vixia HF R800 costs $37.95, whereas the Garmin Virb X is $299.99, the Nikon Keymission 170 is $147.99 and the Sony HDRAS300W is $238.49.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers 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 three years ago, but the Garmin Virb X was released four years ago, the Nikon Keymission 170 was released three years ago, the Sony HDRAS300W was released three years ago and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 was released eight years ago

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

136.5g Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a weight of 235g, but the Garmin Virb X is a 151g camcorder (84g lighter), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (100.5g lighter), the Sony HDRAS300W is a 107g camcorder (128g lighter) and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder (136.5g 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.

73% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28MP camcorder. That's 8.72MP smaller than the Garmin Virb X (12MP), 5.29MP smaller than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W (8.57MP) and 1.72MP smaller than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (5MP). 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 Canon Vixia HF R800 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Garmin Virb X, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Toshiba Camileo BW10, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as 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.

Hugely Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.07MP, but the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 5MP camcorder (2.93MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images 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. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have a built-in flash, whereas the Garmin Virb X, the Nikon Keymission 170, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 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.

User Review Rating is Much Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user score of 89%, but the Garmin Virb X has an average user rating of 100% (based on 2 reviews) and the Sony HDRAS300W has an average user rating of 93% (based on 12 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average overall score of 89%, but the Sony HDRAS300W has an average overall rating of 93% (based on 18 reviews).

Worse Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of only 79.3%, however Sony has an average rating of 84.5%.

The cheapest price that we found for the Vixia HF R800 in the United States is $37.95 and in total we found 18 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRAS300W supports remote operation, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Garmin Virb X, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Garmin Virb X 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), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Garmin Virb X and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 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 do the Garmin Virb X and the Nikon Keymission 170, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 do not. More ...

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

A Lot Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Sony HDRAS300W has a maximum battery life of 2h (as does the Garmin Virb X), however the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only a 1.16h battery life camcorder (0.84h shorter). 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.

Waterproof

The Sony HDRAS300W is a waterproof camcorder (as are the Garmin Virb X and the Nikon Keymission 170), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 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!

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

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.

A Bit Heavier

The Sony HDRAS300W has a weight of 107g, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (128g heavier), the Garmin Virb X is a 151g camcorder (44g heavier), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (27.5g heavier) and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder (8.5g lighter). More ...

The Sony HDRAS300W is an 8.57MP camcorder. That's 5.29MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3.28MP), 3.43MP smaller than the Garmin Virb X (12MP), 0.27MP bigger than the Nikon Keymission 170 (8.3MP) and 3.57MP bigger than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (5MP). 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.

4 Times 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, the Garmin Virb X and the Toshiba Camileo BW10, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as 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.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony HDRAS300W is only stocked by 5 shops, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 18 sellers and the Nikon Keymission 170 is stocked by 11 shops. More ...

User Review Rating is Worse

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Garmin Virb X

Bigger Total Megapixels

The Garmin Virb X is a 12MP camcorder. That's 8.72MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3.28MP), 3.43MP bigger than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W (8.57MP) and 7MP bigger than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (5MP). 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.

Full HD

The Garmin Virb X is a Full HD camcorder (as is the Toshiba Camileo BW10), however 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.

GPS

The Garmin Virb X has a GPS, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Nikon Keymission 170, the Sony HDRAS300W and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 do not have this feature. More ...

GPS denotes whether the camcorder has a GPS system built in, allowing it to record precisely where the video was taken.

Bluetooth

The Garmin Virb X supports bluetooth, and so do the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 do not. More ...

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

A Lot Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Garmin Virb X has a maximum battery life of 2h (as does the Sony HDRAS300W), however the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only a 1.16h battery life camcorder (0.84h shorter). 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.

Waterproof

The Garmin Virb X is a waterproof camcorder (as are the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 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!

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

59% Lighter

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder. That's 136.5g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 52.5g lighter than the Garmin Virb X (151g), 36g lighter than the Nikon Keymission 170 (134.5g) and 8.5g 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10 is Full HD, and so is the Garmin Virb X, but 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.

Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 5MP camcorder. That's 2.93MP higher than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (2.07MP). More ...

The resolution of the images 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. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Face Detection

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a face detection, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Garmin Virb X, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W do not. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Built-in Microphone

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a built-in microphone (as do the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRAS300W), but the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Garmin Virb X 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10 supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Nikon Keymission 170, however the Garmin Virb X 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!
