6 Reasons For for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

Full HD

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is Full HD, and so are the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936, whereas the Cisco Flip UltraHD is 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 Legria HF R700 (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, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936 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 Flash

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a built-in flash, and so does the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, but the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936 do not. 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, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Garmin Virb X 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10 supports HDMI, and so do the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Cisco Flip UltraHD, but the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936 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!

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Toshiba Camileo BW10

22x Smaller Optical Zoom

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has an optical zoom of 10x, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (22x bigger) and the Cisco Flip UltraHD, the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936 are all 1x optical zoom camcorders (9x 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.

33% Heavier

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder. That's 141.5g lighter than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (240g), 151.5g lighter than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (250g), 52.5g lighter than the Garmin Virb X (151g) and 48.5g heavier than the Vivitar DVR936 (50g). More ...

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

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

Vastly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a total megapixels of 5MP, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 3.28MP camcorder (1.72MP smaller), the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1.6MP camcorder (3.4MP smaller), the Garmin Virb X is a 12MP camcorder (7MP bigger) and the Vivitar DVR936 is an 8MP camcorder (3MP 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 Toshiba Camileo BW10 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Garmin Virb X), whereas the Vivitar DVR936 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.

1,130x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 10x (digital) camcorder. That's 1,130x smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (1,140x) and 7x bigger than the Vivitar DVR936 (3x). 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.

Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 30fps camcorder. That's 30fps slower than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Cisco Flip UltraHD (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.

1" Smaller Display Diagonal

Toshiba Camileo BW10 is only 2" screen size, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 3" screen size camcorder (1" larger). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

43% Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 1.16h battery life camcorder. That's 0.84h shorter than the Garmin Virb X (2h) and 0.16h longer than the Vivitar DVR936 (1h). 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.

A Lot Shorter Video Recording Time

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

Worse Kagoo Score

The Toshiba Camileo BW10 has only received a Kagoo Score of 72, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 scored 80, the Cisco Flip UltraHD scored 74, the Garmin Virb X scored 82 and the Vivitar DVR936 scored 79.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Vivitar DVR936

200g Lighter

The Vivitar DVR936 has a weight of 50g, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 240g camcorder (190g heavier), the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 250g camcorder (200g heavier), the Garmin Virb X is a 151g camcorder (101g heavier) and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder (48.5g 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Vivitar DVR936 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Garmin Virb X and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 9 times higher maximum video resolution as the Cisco Flip UltraHD (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.

Full HD

The Vivitar DVR936 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Garmin Virb X and the Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the Cisco Flip UltraHD is 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.

Cheaper by $111

The Vivitar DVR936 costs $110.95 less than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and costs $210.94 less than the Garmin Virb X.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Vivitar DVR936

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Vivitar DVR936 is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the Cisco Flip UltraHD and the Garmin Virb X. That's 31x smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (32x) and 9x smaller 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.

34% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Vivitar DVR936 is an 8MP camcorder. That's 4.72MP bigger than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (3.28MP), 6.4MP bigger than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (1.6MP), 4MP smaller than the Garmin Virb X (12MP) and 3MP 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

Vivitar DVR936 is only 3x (digital), but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 1,140x (digital) camcorder (1,137x bigger) and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 10x (digital) camcorder (7x bigger). 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.

1h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Vivitar DVR936 is only 1h battery life, but the Garmin Virb X is a 2h battery life camcorder (1h longer) and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 1.16h battery life camcorder (0.16h 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 Vivitar DVR936 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 scored 80 and the Garmin Virb X scored 82.

Less Retailers

The Vivitar DVR936 is only stocked by 2 retailers, whereas the Garmin Virb X is stocked by 3 shops. 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 Over Three Years

The Vivitar DVR936 is three years older than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, six months older than the Cisco Flip UltraHD and two years older than the Garmin Virb X.

User Review Rating is Vastly Worse

The Vivitar DVR936's average user score is only 73%, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700's is 85% (based on 45 reviews) and the Garmin Virb X's is 100% (based on 2 reviews).

Worse Brand

Vivitar camcorders have an average rating of only 51.6%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 79.3% and Toshiba has an average rating of 52.4%.

The cheapest price that we found for the DVR936 in the United States is $89.05 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700

45% Heavier

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 240g camcorder. That's 10g lighter than the Cisco Flip UltraHD (250g), 89g heavier than the Garmin Virb X (151g), 141.5g heavier than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (98.5g) and 190g heavier than the Vivitar DVR936 (50g). More ...

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

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

Significantly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has a total megapixels of 3.28MP, whereas the Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1.6MP camcorder (1.68MP smaller), the Garmin Virb X is a 12MP camcorder (8.72MP bigger), the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 5MP camcorder (1.72MP bigger) and the Vivitar DVR936 is an 8MP camcorder (4.72MP 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Garmin Virb X and the Toshiba Camileo BW10), but the Vivitar DVR936 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.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 2.07MP camcorder. That's 2.93MP lower than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (5MP). 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, however the Garmin Virb X scored 82.

$111 More Expensive

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is more expensive than the Vivitar DVR936 by $111.

Less Retailers

Only 1 retailer sell the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, whereas 3 retailers sell the Garmin Virb X and 2 shops sell the Vivitar DVR936. More ...

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

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700's average user rating is 85%, however the Garmin Virb X's is 100% (based on 2 reviews).

A Bit Lower Overall Review Score

The Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700's average overall rating is 85%, however the Garmin Virb X's is 86% (based on 7 reviews).

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Cisco Flip UltraHD

30fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

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

HDMI

The Cisco Flip UltraHD supports HDMI (as do the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 and the Toshiba Camileo BW10), whereas the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936 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!

Longer Video Recording Time

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 2h video recording time camcorder. That's 0.84h 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.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Cisco Flip UltraHD

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the Garmin Virb X and the Vivitar DVR936. That's 31x smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (32x) and 9x smaller 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 Heavier

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has a weight of 250g, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 240g camcorder (10g lighter), the Garmin Virb X is a 151g camcorder (99g lighter), the Toshiba Camileo BW10 is a 98.5g camcorder (151.5g lighter) and the Vivitar DVR936 is a 50g camcorder (200g 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 Cisco Flip UltraHD is a 1.6MP camcorder. That's 1.68MP smaller than the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 (3.28MP), 10.4MP smaller than the Garmin Virb X (12MP), 3.4MP smaller than the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (5MP) and 6.4MP smaller than 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.

9 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has a max video resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels pixels, which is half as high maximum video resolution as the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Garmin Virb X and the Toshiba Camileo BW10 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 9 times lower maximum video resolution as 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.

Not Full HD

The Cisco Flip UltraHD is not Full HD, but the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Garmin Virb X, 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.

Significantly Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The Cisco Flip UltraHD has an internal storage capacity of 8GB, whereas the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700 is a 32GB internal storage capacity camcorder (24GB 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Cisco Flip UltraHD does not have a built-in flash, however the Canon VIXIA Legria HF R700, the Garmin Virb X, the Toshiba Camileo BW10 and the Vivitar DVR936 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.
