34% Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 60fps camcorder, and so does the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700. That's 30fps faster than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (30fps). 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.

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!

0.84h Longer Video Recording Time

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has a video recording time of 2h, whereas the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only a 1.16h video recording time camcorder (0.84h shorter). 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.

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.

Not Full HD

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is not Full HD, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Nikon Keymission 170, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 are. 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.

Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is an 8GB internal storage capacity camcorder. That's 24GB smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (32GB). More ...

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

Full HD

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Vivitar DVR936), however the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

2.93MP Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has an effective megapixels (image) of 5MP, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is only a 2.07MP camcorder (2.93MP lower). 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, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not have this feature. 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 Flash

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a built-in flash (as does the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700), whereas the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a built-in microphone, and so does the Nikon Keymission 170, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Vivitar DVR936 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.

HDMI

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 supports HDMI (as do the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Nikon Keymission 170), whereas the Vivitar DVR936 does 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!

13% Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a maximum battery life of 1.16h, however the Vivitar DVR936 is only a 1h battery life camcorder (0.16h 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.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

69% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 10x optical zoom camcorder. That's 22x smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (32x) and 9x bigger than the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 (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.

A Lot Heavier

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a weight of 98.5g, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 240g camcorder (141.5g heavier), the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 250g camcorder (151.5g heavier), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (36g heavier) and the Vivitar DVR936 is a 50g camcorder (48.5g 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 5MP camcorder. That's 1.72MP bigger than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (3.28MP), 3.4MP bigger than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (1.6MP) and 3MP smaller than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 (8MP). 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 (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.

Vastly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a digital zoom of 10x, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 1,140x (digital) camcorder (1,130x bigger) and the Vivitar DVR936 is a 3x (digital) camcorder (7x smaller). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

30fps Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a maximum frame rate of 30fps, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Cisco Flip UltraHD are both 60fps camcorders (30fps faster). 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.

34% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 2" screen size camcorder. That's 1" smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (3") and 0.5" larger than the Nikon Keymission 170 (1.5"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

Shorter Video Recording Time

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 1.16h video recording time camcorder. That's 0.84h shorter than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (2h). More ...

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

14 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700

50% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 (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.

Full HD

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936), whereas the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

30fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has a maximum frame rate of 60fps (as does the Cisco Flip UltraHD), 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.

A Lot Larger Internal Storage Capacity

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has an internal storage capacity of 32GB, but the Cisco Flip UltraHD is only an 8GB internal storage capacity camcorder (24GB smaller). More ...

'Internal Storage Capacity' denotes how much storage space comes pre-installed on the camcorder.

A larger internal storage means you will be able to record more video before needing to use a memory card to increase the storage capacity.

0.39m Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 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.

Built-in Flash

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has a built-in flash (as does the Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not 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.

34% Larger Display Diagonal

Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 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 Legria HF R700 supports HDMI (as do the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the Vivitar DVR936 does 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!

Considerably Better User Reviews

Based on 45 reviews, the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has an average user review score of 85%, but the Nikon Keymission 170 has an average rating of 75% (based on 24 reviews), the Toshiba Camileo BW10 has an average rating of 63% (based on 15 reviews) and the Vivitar DVR936 has an average rating of 73% (based on 3 reviews).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700

A Lot Heavier

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has a weight of 240g, but the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 250g camcorder (10g heavier), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (105.5g lighter), the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder (141.5g lighter) and the Vivitar DVR936 is a 50g camcorder (190g 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 Legria HF R700 is a 3.28MP camcorder. That's 1.68MP bigger than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (1.6MP), 4.72MP smaller than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 (8MP) 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 Legria HF R700 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Toshiba Camileo BW10, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Vivitar DVR936 (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.

2.93MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Nikon Keymission 170 scored 85 and the Vivitar DVR936 scored 82.

More Expensive by $130

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is $52 more expensive than the Nikon Keymission 170 and $130 more expensive than the Vivitar DVR936.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is only stocked by 1 shop, however the Nikon Keymission 170 is stocked by 11 sellers and the Vivitar DVR936 is stocked by 2 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.

The cheapest price that we found for the VIXIA Legria HF R700 in the United States is $200.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Keymission 170

A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a total megapixels of 8.3MP, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is only a 3.28MP camcorder (5.02MP smaller), the Cisco Flip UltraHD is only a 1.6MP camcorder (6.7MP smaller), the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only a 5MP camcorder (3.3MP smaller) and the Vivitar DVR936 is only an 8MP camcorder (0.3MP smaller). 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Vivitar DVR936), but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 have a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the Cisco Flip UltraHD only has a max video resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD Ready) 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a built-in microphone (as does the Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Vivitar DVR936 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 Nikon Keymission 170 supports HDMI, and so do the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Toshiba Camileo BW10, however the Vivitar DVR936 does 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!

Wi-Fi

The Nikon Keymission 170 features Wi-Fi, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not. More ...

Bluetooth

The Nikon Keymission 170 supports bluetooth, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 do not support this feature. More ...

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

Waterproof

The Nikon Keymission 170 is waterproof, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 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!

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon Keymission 170 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 scored 80, the Cisco Flip UltraHD scored only 74, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 scored only 72 and the Vivitar DVR936 scored 82.
