9 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

Significantly Lighter

The Polaroid Cube has a weight of 59g, whereas the Kodak Super 8 is a 1kg camcorder (941g heavier), the Vivitar DVR786HD is a 544g camcorder (485g heavier), the Vivitar DVR794HD is a 68g camcorder (9g heavier) and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is a 240g camcorder (181g 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Polaroid Cube has an image stabilizer, however the Kodak Super 8, the Vivitar DVR786HD, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 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.

Full HD

The Polaroid Cube is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Vivitar DVR786HD and the Vivitar DVR794HD), however the Kodak Super 8 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 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.

Waterproof

The Polaroid Cube is a waterproof camcorder (as are the Vivitar DVR786HD and the Vivitar DVR794HD), however the Kodak Super 8 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 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 Polaroid Cube has received a Kagoo Score of 85, whereas the Kodak Super 8 scored only 67, the Vivitar DVR786HD scored 79, the Vivitar DVR794HD scored 82 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 scored only 66.

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.

Better Manufacturer's Guarantee by One Year

The Polaroid Cube comes with a two year guarantee from the manufacturer, whereas the Vivitar DVR786HD has a one year guarantee.

One More Award

The Polaroid Cube has received 1 award from an expert review site, but the Kodak Super 8 has received no awards, the Vivitar DVR786HD has received no awards, the Vivitar DVR794HD has received no awards and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 has received no awards.

Considerably Better User Reviews

Based on 57 user reviews, the Polaroid Cube has an average review score of 76%, whereas the Vivitar DVR794HD has an average rating of 63% (based on 12 reviews).

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

Smaller Total Megapixels

The Polaroid Cube is an 8MP camcorder. That's 4MP smaller than the Vivitar DVR786HD and the Vivitar DVR794HD (12MP) and 7.7MP bigger than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 (0.3MP). 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.

Older by Over One Year

The Polaroid Cube is 17 months older than the Kodak Super 8 and 15 months older than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180.

Worse Brand

Polaroid camcorders have an average rating of only 73.3%, but Vivitar has an average rating of 78.2%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Cube in the US is $27.99 and in total we found 7 prices for it.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180

Heavier

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is a 240g camcorder. That's 760g lighter than the Kodak Super 8 (1kg), 181g heavier than the Polaroid Cube (59g), 304g lighter than the Vivitar DVR786HD (544g) and 172g heavier than the Vivitar DVR794HD (68g). More ...

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

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

11.8MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 has a total megapixels of 0.3MP, however the Polaroid Cube is an 8MP camcorder (7.7MP bigger) and the Vivitar DVR786HD and the Vivitar DVR794HD are both 12MP camcorders (11.7MP 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 VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 has a max video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, whereas the Vivitar DVR786HD has a max video resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels and the Vivitar DVR794HD has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. We do not know what type of max video resolution the Kodak Super 8 have. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 has only received a Kagoo Score of 66, but the Kodak Super 8 scored 67, the Polaroid Cube scored 85, the Vivitar DVR786HD scored 79 and the Vivitar DVR794HD scored 82.

$24 More Expensive

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is more expensive than the Kodak Super 8 by $20, more expensive than the Polaroid Cube by $22, more expensive than the Vivitar DVR786HD by $20 and more expensive than the Vivitar DVR794HD by $24.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 retailers sells the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180, however 7 stores sell the Polaroid Cube, 6 stores sell the Vivitar DVR786HD and 4 retailers sell the Vivitar DVR794HD. More ...

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

The VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is older than the Kodak Super 8 by two months.

Worse Brand

VTech camcorders have an average rating of only 58.1%, however Kodak has an average rating of 61.5%, Polaroid has an average rating of 73.3% and Vivitar has an average rating of 78.2%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Kidizoom Action Cam 180 in the US is $50.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
