7 Reasons For for Choosing the Zoom Q2N4K

Full HD

The Zoom Q2N4K is a Full HD camcorder (as is the DJI Osmo+), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 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 Q2N4K has a built-in microphone, and so does the GoPro HERO5, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony HDRCX440 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 Zoom Q2N4K supports HDMI (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX440), but the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO5 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!

Night Mode

The Zoom Q2N4K has a night mode, and so does the DJI Osmo+, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 do not. More ...

'Night Mode' denotes whether the camcorder has a special mode for shooting video at night - it does this by upping the light taken in by the lens of the camcorder, leading to a brighter recorded image.

Camcorders usually struggle to record video in low-light conditions - a specially designed night mode fixes that.

Better Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N4K has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 83, the DJI Osmo+ scored 86, the GoPro HERO5 scored 86 and the Sony HDRCX440 scored 87.

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.

Has a Better Acceptable Noise Level

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Zoom Q2N4K has a better acceptable noise level. More than 20 people thought that it was quiet.

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N4K

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N4K is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO5. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX440 (30x). 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 Zoom Q2N4K has a weight of 124g, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (111g heavier), the DJI Osmo+ is a 268g camcorder (144g heavier), the GoPro HERO5 is a 74g camcorder (50g lighter) and the Sony HDRCX440 is a 190g camcorder (66g heavier). 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 Zoom Q2N4K is a 2MP camcorder. That's 1.28MP smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3.28MP), 10MP smaller than the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO5 (12MP) and 0.29MP smaller than the Sony HDRCX440 (2.29MP). 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 Q2N4K has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the DJI Osmo+ (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 Q2N4K does not have an image stabilizer, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 do. 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.

94% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Zoom Q2N4K is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder, and so does the DJI Osmo+. That's 40.2 lower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (43) and 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX440 (1.8). 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.

210fps Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N4K has a maximum frame rate of 30fps, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 60fps camcorder (30fps faster) and the DJI Osmo+ is a 240fps camcorder (210fps 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.

A Lot Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Zoom Q2N4K has a maximum memory card size of 128GB, however the DJI Osmo+ is a 256GB maximum memory card size camcorder (128GB larger). More ...

Using memory cards in addition to the camcorder's internal storage increases the time the camcorder can record video.

Using a larger memory card allows the user to record video for longer and at higher resolution.

0.35m Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Zoom Q2N4K has a closest focusing distance of 0.36m, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 0.01m closest focusing distance camcorder (0.35m smaller). 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 Q2N4K does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Canon Vixia HF R800), whereas the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 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.

41% Smaller Display Diagonal

Zoom Q2N4K is only 1.77" screen size. That's 1.23" smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

0.25h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Zoom Q2N4K is a 2h battery life camcorder, whereas the DJI Osmo+ is a 2.25h battery life camcorder (0.25h 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.

More Expensive by $61

The Zoom Q2N4K is $61 more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ and $5 more expensive than the GoPro HERO5.

Older by One Month

The Zoom Q2N4K is one month older than the Sony HDRCX440. The Zoom Q2N4K is the same age as the Canon Vixia HF R800.

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Zoom Q2N4K has an average user score of 83%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 127 reviews), the DJI Osmo+ has an average user rating of 89% (based on 699 reviews), the GoPro HERO5 has an average user rating of 94% (based on 422 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440 has an average user rating of 88% (based on 234 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The Zoom Q2N4K has an average overall score of 83%, but the DJI Osmo+ has an average overall rating of 91% (based on 778 reviews), the GoPro HERO5 has an average overall rating of 91% (based on 437 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440 has an average overall rating of 88% (based on 234 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 5.5% of 218 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N4K, however 57.9% of 786 customers recommend the DJI Osmo+, 83.2% of 446 customers recommend the GoPro HERO5 and 56.7% of 293 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440.

Worse Brand

Zoom camcorders have an average rating of only 78%, however Canon has an average rating of 92.8%, GoPro has an average rating of 93.3% and Sony has an average rating of 95%.

18 Reasons For for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

46% Bigger Total Megapixels

The DJI Osmo+ is a 12MP camcorder, and so does the GoPro HERO5. That's 8.72MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3.28MP) and 10MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K (2MP). 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 DJI Osmo+ has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K (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 DJI Osmo+ has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440), but the Zoom Q2N4K does 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.

Full HD

The DJI Osmo+ is a Full HD camcorder (as is the Zoom Q2N4K), but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 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.

A Lot Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The DJI Osmo+ has a maximum frame rate of 240fps, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is only a 60fps camcorder (180fps slower) and the Zoom Q2N4K is only a 30fps camcorder (210fps 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.

128GB Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The DJI Osmo+ has a maximum memory card size of 256GB, whereas the Zoom Q2N4K is only a 128GB maximum memory card size camcorder (128GB smaller). More ...

Using memory cards in addition to the camcorder's internal storage increases the time the camcorder can record video.

Using a larger memory card allows the user to record video for longer and at higher resolution.

3D

The DJI Osmo+ is a 3D camcorder (as is the Canon Vixia HF R800), however the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K are not. More ...

'3D' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of recording video in 3D or not.

3D videos have the ability to be far more immersive and captivating than standard 2D videos. However be aware that displaying them requires a monitor or TV that is capable of displaying 3D videos, and a set of glasses to allow you to view them properly.

Remote Operation

The DJI Osmo+ supports remote operation, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K 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.

GPS

The DJI Osmo+ has a GPS (as does the Canon Vixia HF R800), but the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K 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.

Wi-Fi

The DJI Osmo+ features Wi-Fi (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440), however the Zoom Q2N4K does 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.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The DJI Osmo+ supports Near Field Communication (NFC) (as does the Canon Vixia HF R800), but the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K do not support this feature. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Bluetooth

The DJI Osmo+ supports bluetooth, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K do not. More ...

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

0.25h Longer Maximum Battery Life

DJI Osmo+ is 2.25h battery life, but the Zoom Q2N4K is only a 2h battery life camcorder (0.25h 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.

Night Mode

The DJI Osmo+ has a night mode, and so does the Zoom Q2N4K, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 do not. More ...

'Night Mode' denotes whether the camcorder has a special mode for shooting video at night - it does this by upping the light taken in by the lens of the camcorder, leading to a brighter recorded image.

Camcorders usually struggle to record video in low-light conditions - a specially designed night mode fixes that.

Waterproof

The DJI Osmo+ is a waterproof camcorder (as is the GoPro HERO5), but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K 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!

Cheaper by $56

The DJI Osmo+ costs $140.95 less than the Canon Vixia HF R800, costs $56 less than the GoPro HERO5, costs $81 less than the Sony HDRCX440 and costs $60.99 less than the Zoom Q2N4K.

10 More Awards

The DJI Osmo+ has received 10 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 has received no awards, the GoPro HERO5 has received no awards, the Sony HDRCX440 has received no awards and the Zoom Q2N4K has received no awards.

A Little Better Overall Reviews

The DJI Osmo+ has an average overall review score of 91% based on 778 reviews, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average rating of 81% (based on 130 reviews), the Sony HDRCX440 has an average rating of 88% (based on 234 reviews) and the Zoom Q2N4K has an average rating of 83% (based on 114 reviews).

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

Smaller Optical Zoom

The DJI Osmo+ is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO5 and the Zoom Q2N4K. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX440 (30x). 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.

194g Heavier

The DJI Osmo+ has a weight of 268g, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (33g lighter), the GoPro HERO5 is a 74g camcorder (194g lighter), the Sony HDRCX440 is a 190g camcorder (78g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N4K is a 124g camcorder (144g 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.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

DJI Osmo+ is only 2.8 maximum aperture value, and so does the Zoom Q2N4K. That's 40.2 lower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (43) and 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX440 (1.8). 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.

31GB Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The DJI Osmo+ has an internal storage capacity of 1GB, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32GB internal storage capacity camcorder (31GB larger). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The DJI Osmo+ has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the Sony HDRCX440 scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N4K scored 89.

Less Retailers

The DJI Osmo+ is only stocked by 7 retailers, whereas the Zoom Q2N4K is stocked by 10 stores. More ...

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

The DJI Osmo+ is two months older than the Canon Vixia HF R800, three months older than the Sony HDRCX440 and two months older than the Zoom Q2N4K.

Expert Review Rating is a Little Worse

The DJI Osmo+'s average expert score is 87%, however the GoPro HERO5's is 89% (based on 15 reviews).

User Review Rating is Worse

The DJI Osmo+'s average user score is 89%, however the GoPro HERO5's is 94% (based on 422 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 57.9% of 786 customers recommend the DJI Osmo+, whereas 83.2% of 446 customers recommend the GoPro HERO5.

Worse Brand

DJI camcorders have an average rating of only 69%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 92.8%, GoPro has an average rating of 93.3%, Sony has an average rating of 95% and Zoom has an average rating of 78%.

16 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO5

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

A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO5 has a total megapixels of 12MP (as does the DJI Osmo+), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is only a 3.28MP camcorder (8.72MP smaller) and the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K are both only 2MP camcorders (10MP 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.

'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

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

A Lot Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an optical zoom of 32x, however the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO5 and the Zoom Q2N4K are all only 1x optical zoom camcorders (31x smaller) and the Sony HDRCX440 is only a 30x optical zoom camcorder (2x smaller). 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, and so do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440, but the Zoom Q2N4K does not. 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.

A Lot Higher Maximum Aperture Number

Canon Vixia HF R800 is 43 maximum aperture value, but the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N4K are both only 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorders (40.2 lower) and the Sony HDRCX440 is only a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (41.2 lower). 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.

Larger Internal Storage Capacity

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32GB internal storage capacity camcorder. That's 31GB larger than the DJI Osmo+ (1GB). 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.

98% Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 0.01m closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.35m smaller than the Zoom Q2N4K (0.36m). 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.

A Lot Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a display diagonal of 3", however the Zoom Q2N4K is only a 1.77" screen size camcorder (1.23" 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.

3D

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is 3D, and so is the DJI Osmo+, however the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K are not. More ...

'3D' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of recording video in 3D or not.

3D videos have the ability to be far more immersive and captivating than standard 2D videos. However be aware that displaying them requires a monitor or TV that is capable of displaying 3D videos, and a set of glasses to allow you to view them properly.

GPS

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a GPS, and so does the DJI Osmo+, but the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K do not. More ...

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

HDMI

The Canon Vixia HF R800 supports HDMI, and so do the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K, however the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO5 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!

Wi-Fi

The Canon Vixia HF R800 features Wi-Fi, and so do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440, however the Zoom Q2N4K does not. 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.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Canon Vixia HF R800 supports Near Field Communication (NFC), and so does the DJI Osmo+, but the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K do not. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder. That's 33g lighter than the DJI Osmo+ (268g), 161g heavier than the GoPro HERO5 (74g), 45g heavier than the Sony HDRCX440 (190g) and 111g heavier than the Zoom Q2N4K (124g). More ...

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

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

8.72MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a total megapixels of 3.28MP, whereas the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO5 are both 12MP camcorders (8.72MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K are both 2MP camcorders (1.28MP 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.

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 (as are the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Zoom Q2N4K), but the DJI Osmo+ has 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.

75% Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 60fps camcorder. That's 180fps slower than the DJI Osmo+ (240fps) and 30fps faster than the Zoom Q2N4K (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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Zoom Q2N4K), but the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX440 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, however the DJI Osmo+ scored 86, the GoPro HERO5 scored 86, the Sony HDRCX440 scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N4K scored 89.

$141 More Expensive

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ by $141, more expensive than the GoPro HERO5 by $85, more expensive than the Sony HDRCX440 by $60 and more expensive than the Zoom Q2N4K by $80.

Less Retailers

Only 7 stores sells the Canon Vixia HF R800, whereas 10 shops sell the Zoom Q2N4K. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
One Month Older

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is older than the Sony HDRCX440 by one month. The Canon Vixia HF R800 is the same age as the Zoom Q2N4K.
