15 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO8

9.71MP Bigger Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO8 has a total megapixels of 12MP (as does the DJI Osmo+), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N4K are both only 3MP camcorders (9MP smaller) and the Sony HDRCX440B is only a 2.29MP camcorder (9.71MP 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 GoPro HERO8 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the DJI Osmo+), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N4K have a max video resolution of 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 GoPro HERO8 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony HDRCX440B, whereas 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.

Full HD

The GoPro HERO8 is Full HD, and so are the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N4K, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The GoPro HERO8 is a 256GB maximum memory card size camcorder, and so does the DJI Osmo+. That's 128GB larger than the Zoom Q2N4K (128GB). 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.

Built-in Flash

The GoPro HERO8 has a built-in flash, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N4K 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.

Remote Operation

The GoPro HERO8 supports remote operation (as does the DJI Osmo+), however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N4K do not support this feature. 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 GoPro HERO8 has a GPS, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+, the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Wi-Fi

The GoPro HERO8 features Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony HDRCX440B, but 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.

Bluetooth

The GoPro HERO8 supports bluetooth (as does the DJI Osmo+), but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N4K 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 GoPro HERO8 is waterproof, and so is the DJI Osmo+, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B 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!

Better Kagoo Score

The GoPro HERO8 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored only 72, the DJI Osmo+ scored 86, the Sony HDRCX440B scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N4K scored 87.

Three Years Newer

The GoPro HERO8 was released 15 months ago, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 was released four years ago, the DJI Osmo+ was released four years ago, the Sony HDRCX440B was released four years ago and the Zoom Q2N4K was released four years ago

Expert Reviews Are Moderately Better

The average expert review score of the GoPro HERO8 is 90% based on 3 reviews, but the average rating of the DJI Osmo+ is 86% (based on 104 reviews).

User Reviews Are Appreciably Better

The average user review score of the GoPro HERO8 is 100% based on 2 reviews, but the average rating of the DJI Osmo+ is 78% (based on 334 reviews), the average rating of the Sony HDRCX440B is 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the average rating of the Zoom Q2N4K is 87% (based on 71 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO8

Hugely Smaller Optical Zoom

The GoPro HERO8 has an optical zoom of 1x (as do the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N4K), but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (31x bigger) and the Sony HDRCX440B is a 30x optical zoom camcorder (29x bigger). 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.

Heavier

The GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder. That's 109g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 142g lighter than the DJI Osmo+ (268g), 64g lighter than the Sony HDRCX440B (190g) and 36g heavier than the Zoom Q2N4K (90g). More ...

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

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

$154 More Expensive

The GoPro HERO8 is more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ by $154, more expensive than the Sony HDRCX440B by $110 and more expensive than the Zoom Q2N4K by $89.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 10 retailers sells the GoPro HERO8, however 11 sellers sell the Zoom Q2N4K. 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.
Fewer Awards

Whilst the GoPro HERO8 has received 1 award, the DJI Osmo+ has received 6 awards.

Worse Brand

GoPro camcorders have an average rating of only 91.7%, however Sony has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HERO8 in the US is $249.00 and in total we found 10 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRCX440B

Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDRCX440B has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8), 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX440B

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRCX440B is a 30x optical zoom camcorder. That's 2x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x bigger than the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N4K (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.

100g Heavier

The Sony HDRCX440B has a weight of 190g, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (45g heavier), the DJI Osmo+ is a 268g camcorder (78g heavier), the GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder (64g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N4K is a 90g camcorder (100g 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.

81% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX440B is a 2.29MP camcorder. That's 0.71MP smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N4K (3MP) and 9.71MP smaller than the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 (12MP). 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 Sony HDRCX440B has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N4K, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 (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 Maximum Aperture Number

Sony HDRCX440B is only 1.8 maximum aperture value. That's 41.2 lower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (43) and 0.2 lower than the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N4K (2). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRCX440B has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the GoPro HERO8 scored 88.

More Expensive by $44

The Sony HDRCX440B is $44 more expensive than the DJI Osmo+.

Less Retailers

The Sony HDRCX440B is only stocked by 4 sellers, whereas the DJI Osmo+ is stocked by 8 stores, the GoPro HERO8 is stocked by 10 shops and the Zoom Q2N4K is stocked by 11 retailers. 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 Two Years

The Sony HDRCX440B is three years older than the GoPro HERO8. The Sony HDRCX440B is the same age as the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N4K.

User Review Rating is Much Worse

The Sony HDRCX440B's average user score is 90%, however the GoPro HERO8's is 100% (based on 2 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The Sony HDRCX440B's average overall score is 90%, however the GoPro HERO8's is 94% (based on 5 reviews).

Worse Well Executed Technical Features

The Sony HDRCX440B reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX440B was worse well executed technical features.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HDRCX440B in the US is $139.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Zoom Q2N4K

178g Lighter

The Zoom Q2N4K has a weight of 90g, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (145g heavier), the DJI Osmo+ is a 268g camcorder (178g heavier), the GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder (36g heavier) and the Sony HDRCX440B is a 190g camcorder (100g 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.

Full HD

The Zoom Q2N4K is a Full HD camcorder (as are the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8), but the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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 does the Canon Vixia HF R800), however the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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 Maximum Battery Life

Zoom Q2N4K is 3h battery life, but the DJI Osmo+ is only a 2.25h battery life camcorder (0.75h 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 Zoom Q2N4K has a night mode, and so does the DJI Osmo+, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

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.

Has a Better OK Noise Level

The Zoom Q2N4K reviewers thought the Zoom Q2N4K has a better OK noise level. More than 20 people thought that it was quiet.

Better Great Audio Quality

Our analysis of the Zoom Q2N4K reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Zoom Q2N4K was better great audio quality. More than 30 people thought that it had a great audio quality.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N4K

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N4K is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX440B (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.

75% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N4K is a 3MP camcorder. That's 0.28MP smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3.28MP), 9MP smaller than the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 (12MP) and 0.71MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440B (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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels 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 and the Sony HDRCX440B, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 (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, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Zoom Q2N4K is only 2 maximum aperture value. That's 41 lower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (43), 0.8 lower than the DJI Osmo+ (2.8) and 0.2 higher than the Sony HDRCX440B (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.

A Lot Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N4K has a maximum frame rate of 30fps, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the DJI Osmo+ 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.

128GB Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Zoom Q2N4K has a maximum memory card size of 128GB, whereas the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 are both 256GB maximum memory card size camcorders (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.

A Lot Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Zoom Q2N4K has a closest focusing distance of 0.36m, but 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), but the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Zoom Q2N4K has a display diagonal of 1.77". 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.

The Zoom Q2N4K has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the GoPro HERO8 scored 88.

14 Reasons For for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

Bigger Total Megapixels

The DJI Osmo+ is a 12MP camcorder, and so does the GoPro HERO8. That's 9MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N4K (3MP) and 9.71MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440B (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.

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The DJI Osmo+ has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so is the GoPro HERO8, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B 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 HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B), however 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 are the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N4K), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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 DJI Osmo+ has a maximum frame rate of 60fps (as does the Canon Vixia HF R800), but the Zoom Q2N4K 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 Maximum Memory Card Size

The DJI Osmo+ has a maximum memory card size of 256GB (as does the GoPro HERO8), but 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.

Remote Operation

The DJI Osmo+ supports remote operation, and so does the GoPro HERO8, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Wi-Fi

The DJI Osmo+ features Wi-Fi (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B), whereas 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.

Bluetooth

The DJI Osmo+ supports bluetooth, and so does the GoPro HERO8, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Night Mode

The DJI Osmo+ has a night mode, and so does the Zoom Q2N4K, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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 HERO8), however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B 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 $44

The DJI Osmo+ is $154 cheaper than the GoPro HERO8, $44 cheaper than the Sony HDRCX440B and $64.99 cheaper than the Zoom Q2N4K.

Six More Awards

The DJI Osmo+ has received 6 awards from expert review sites, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has received no awards, the GoPro HERO8 has received 1 award, the Sony HDRCX440B has received no awards and the Zoom Q2N4K has received no awards.

Better Well Executed Technical Features

The DJI Osmo+ reviewers thought the DJI Osmo+ was better well executed technical features. More than 10 people thought that it had good features.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The DJI Osmo+ is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N4K. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX440B (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 DJI Osmo+ has a weight of 268g, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (33g lighter), the GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder (142g lighter), the Sony HDRCX440B is a 190g camcorder (78g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N4K is a 90g camcorder (178g 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.

94% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The DJI Osmo+ has a maximum aperture number of 2.8. That's 40.2 lower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (43), 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX440B (1.8) and 0.8 higher than the Zoom Q2N4K (2). 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.

Significantly Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The DJI Osmo+ has an internal storage capacity of 1GB, whereas 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.

25% Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The DJI Osmo+ has a maximum battery life of 2.25h, however the Zoom Q2N4K is a 3h battery life camcorder (0.75h 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 DJI Osmo+ has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the GoPro HERO8 scored 88, the Sony HDRCX440B scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N4K scored 87.

Fewer Sellers

The DJI Osmo+ is only stocked by 8 stores, but the GoPro HERO8 is stocked by 10 stores and the Zoom Q2N4K is stocked by 11 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over Two Years

The DJI Osmo+ is two months older than the Canon Vixia HF R800, three years older than the GoPro HERO8, two months older than the Sony HDRCX440B and two months older than the Zoom Q2N4K.

Expert Review Rating is a Bit Worse

The average expert rating of the DJI Osmo+ is 86%, whereas the average expert rating of the GoPro HERO8 is 90% (based on 3 reviews).

User Review Rating is Significantly Worse

The average user rating of the DJI Osmo+ is only 78%, whereas the average user rating of the GoPro HERO8 is 100% (based on 2 reviews), the Sony HDRCX440B is 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the Zoom Q2N4K is 87% (based on 71 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 10.5% of 459 customers recommend the DJI Osmo+, but 57.7% of 175 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440B.
