11 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

31x Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an optical zoom of 32, however the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N are all only 1x optical zoom camcorders (31x smaller) and the Sony HDRCX405 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 does the Sony HDRCX405, but the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N do 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.

Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 60 camcorder, and so does the Sony HDRCX405. That's 30fps faster than the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N (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.

29% Larger Internal Storage Capacity

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32 internal storage capacity camcorder. That's 13GB larger than the Ricoh Theta V (19GB). 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.

Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 0.01 closest focusing distance camcorder, and so does the Sony HDRCX405. That's 0.35m smaller than the Zoom Q2N (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.

1.23" Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a display diagonal of 3, however the Sony HDRCX405 is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.3" smaller) and the Zoom Q2N 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.

HDMI

The Canon Vixia HF R800 supports HDMI, and so do the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N, however the GoPro HERO6 and the Ricoh Theta V 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!

A Lot Longer Video Recording Time

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a video recording time of 17.33, whereas the Ricoh Theta V is only a 1.33h video recording time camcorder (16h shorter). More ...

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

A longer video recording time means that you can record more video in a single session, and need to recharge the battery less.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Ricoh Theta V scored 86.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Better Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of 95%, whereas GoPro only has an average rating of 92.1%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 82.7% and Zoom only has an average rating of 83.1%.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

39% Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235 camcorder. That's 118g heavier than the GoPro HERO6 (117g), 110g heavier than the Ricoh Theta V (125g), 45g heavier than the Sony HDRCX405 (190g) and 145g heavier than the Zoom Q2N (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.

Significantly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a total megapixels of 3.28, whereas the GoPro HERO6 is a 12MP camcorder (8.72MP bigger), the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (10.72MP bigger), the Sony HDRCX405 is a 9.2MP camcorder (5.92MP bigger) and the Zoom Q2N is a 3MP camcorder (0.28MP 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 Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N), but the GoPro HERO6 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels and the Ricoh Theta V has a max video resolution of 3840 x 1920 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 HF R800 is a 2.07 camcorder. That's 11.93MP lower than the Ricoh Theta V (14MP) and 0.22MP lower than the Sony HDRCX405 (2.29MP). 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.

Slightly Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

145g Lighter

The Zoom Q2N has a weight of 90, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (145g heavier), the GoPro HERO6 is a 117g camcorder (27g heavier), the Ricoh Theta V is a 125g camcorder (35g heavier) and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Zoom Q2N is a 2 maximum aperture value camcorder, and so does the Ricoh Theta V. That's 0.2 higher than the Sony HDRCX405 (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.

Full HD

The Zoom Q2N is a Full HD camcorder (as are the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Zoom Q2N has a built-in microphone, and so does the Sony HDRCX405, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6 and the Ricoh Theta V 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 Q2N supports HDMI (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405), but the GoPro HERO6 and the Ricoh Theta V 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!

2.08h Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Zoom Q2N is a 3 battery life camcorder, whereas the Ricoh Theta V is only a 1.33h battery life camcorder (1.67h shorter) and the Sony HDRCX405 is only a 0.92h battery life camcorder (2.08h 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Ricoh Theta V scored 86.

Cheaper by $14

The Zoom Q2N costs $136.31, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is $172.99, the GoPro HERO6 is $249.99, the Ricoh Theta V is $282.85 and the Sony HDRCX405 is $149.95.

Has a Better OK Noise Level

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Zoom Q2N has a better OK noise level. More than 20 people thought that it was quiet.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO6 and the Ricoh Theta V. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (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.

79% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N is a 3 camcorder. That's 0.28MP smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3.28MP), 9MP smaller than the GoPro HERO6 (12MP), 11MP smaller than the Ricoh Theta V (14MP) and 6.2MP smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (9.2MP). 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.

Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Zoom Q2N has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO6 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels) and 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Ricoh Theta V (3840 x 1920 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 Q2N does not have an image stabilizer, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

A Lot Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N has a maximum frame rate of 30 (as does the Ricoh Theta V), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

A Lot Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Zoom Q2N has a closest focusing distance of 0.36, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405 are both 0.01m closest focusing distance camcorders (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 Q2N does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405), whereas the GoPro HERO6 does. 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

Zoom Q2N is only 1.77 screen size. That's 1.23" smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3") and 0.93" smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (2.7"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

Not As Many Stockists

The Zoom Q2N is only stocked by 8 stores, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 20 retailers and the GoPro HERO6 is stocked by 10 shops. More ...

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

The Zoom Q2N is eight months older than the Ricoh Theta V. The Zoom Q2N is the same age as the Canon Vixia HF R800.

User Review Rating is Worse

The Zoom Q2N has an average user score of 87%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO6 has an average user rating of 93% (based on 592 reviews), the Ricoh Theta V has an average user rating of 90% (based on 47 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX405 has an average user rating of 88% (based on 723 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The Zoom Q2N has an average overall score of 87%, but the GoPro HERO6 has an average overall rating of 92% (based on 626 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX405 has an average overall rating of 88% (based on 723 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 7.9% of 152 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N, however 76.1% of 673 customers recommend the GoPro HERO6, 15.7% of 134 customers recommend the Ricoh Theta V and 65.5% of 725 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX405.

Worse Brand

Zoom camcorders have an average rating of only 83.1%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, GoPro has an average rating of 92.1% and Sony has an average rating of 95%.

The Sony HDRCX405 has a maximum frame rate of 60 (as does the Canon Vixia HF R800), but the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N are both only 30fps camcorders (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.

9% Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Sony HDRCX405 is 2.29 (movie mode). That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (2.07MP). More ...

The resolution of the videos 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.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

Vastly Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Sony HDRCX405 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01 (as does the Canon Vixia HF R800), however the Zoom Q2N is a 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorder (0.35m bigger). More ...

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Face Detection

The Sony HDRCX405 has a face detection, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N do not have this feature. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Smile Detection

The Sony HDRCX405 features smile detection, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N do not feature this benefit. More ...

Smile detection is a system to automatically detect when people in the camcorder's shot are smiling, and pull focus towards them to make sure they're always in full focus.

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRCX405 supports remote operation, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Sony HDRCX405 has a built-in microphone, and so does the Zoom Q2N, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6 and the Ricoh Theta V 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 Sony HDRCX405 supports HDMI (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO6 and the Ricoh Theta V 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 Sony HDRCX405 has a night mode, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N 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 Sony HDRCX405 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Ricoh Theta V scored 86.

Better Brand

Sony camcorders have an average rating of 95%, but GoPro only has an average rating of 92.1%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 82.7% and Zoom only has an average rating of 83.1%.

26 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX405

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 30 optical zoom camcorder. That's 2x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x bigger than the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N (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 HDRCX405 has a weight of 190, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (45g heavier), the GoPro HERO6 is a 117g camcorder (73g lighter), the Ricoh Theta V is a 125g camcorder (65g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N 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.

35% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 9.2 camcorder. That's 6.2MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 2.8MP smaller than the GoPro HERO6 (12MP) and 4.8MP smaller than the Ricoh Theta V (14MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

4 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Sony HDRCX405 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO6 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels) and 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Ricoh Theta V (3840 x 1920 pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Vastly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony HDRCX405 has a digital zoom of 350, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 1,140x (digital) camcorder (790x 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.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX405 has a maximum aperture number of 1.8. That's 0.2 lower than the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N (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 Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRCX405 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.29, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 2.07MP camcorder (0.22MP lower) and the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (11.71MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Sony HDRCX405 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N), however the GoPro HERO6 does. 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 Sony HDRCX405 is a 2.7 screen size camcorder. That's 0.3" smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3") and 0.93" larger than the Zoom Q2N (1.77"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

2.08h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Sony HDRCX405 has a maximum battery life of 0.92, however the Ricoh Theta V is a 1.33h battery life camcorder (0.41h longer) and the Zoom Q2N is a 3h battery life camcorder (2.08h 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.

Not Waterproof

The Sony HDRCX405 is not waterproof, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Ricoh Theta V and the Zoom Q2N are. 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!

More Expensive by $14

The Sony HDRCX405 is $14 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony HDRCX405 is only stocked by 8 shops, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 20 stores and the GoPro HERO6 is stocked by 10 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh Theta V

44% Bigger Total Megapixels

The Ricoh Theta V is a 14 camcorder. That's 11MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 2MP bigger than the GoPro HERO6 (12MP) and 4.8MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX405 (9.2MP). 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.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Ricoh Theta V has a maximum aperture number of 2, and so does the Zoom Q2N. That's 0.2 higher than the Sony HDRCX405 (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.

Full HD

The Ricoh Theta V is a Full HD camcorder (as are the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 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.

A Lot Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Ricoh Theta V has an effective megapixels (image) of 14, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405 are both only 2.29MP camcorders (11.71MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Wi-Fi

The Ricoh Theta V features Wi-Fi, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N do 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 Ricoh Theta V supports bluetooth, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N do not. More ...

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

Easier to Use

On average reviewers thought the Ricoh Theta V was easier to use. Over 10 people thought that it was very easy to use and three people thought that it was also very easy to setup.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh Theta V

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Ricoh Theta V is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (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.

35g Heavier

The Ricoh Theta V has a weight of 125, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (110g heavier), the GoPro HERO6 is a 117g camcorder (8g lighter), the Sony HDRCX405 is a 190g camcorder (65g heavier) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (35g 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 Video Resolution

The Ricoh Theta V has a max video resolution of 3840 x 1920 pixels pixels, however the GoPro HERO6 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.

A Lot Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Ricoh Theta V has a maximum frame rate of 30 (as does the Zoom Q2N), but the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

13GB Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The Ricoh Theta V has an internal storage capacity of 19, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32GB internal storage capacity camcorder (13GB 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 Ricoh Theta V does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N), however the GoPro HERO6 does. 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Ricoh Theta V does not have a built-in display, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N do. More ...

'Built-In Display' indicates whether the camcorder has a display built into the body of the device or not.

A built-in display is very helpful for checking the framing of the shot, or for quickly replaying your video to check everything recorded fine.

Does Not Support HDMI

The Ricoh Theta V does not support HDMI, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N do. 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!

1.67h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Ricoh Theta V has a maximum battery life of 1.33, however the Sony HDRCX405 is a 0.92h battery life camcorder (0.41h shorter) and the Zoom Q2N is a 3h battery life camcorder (1.67h 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.

93% Shorter Video Recording Time

The Ricoh Theta V is a 1.33 video recording time camcorder. That's 16h shorter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (17.33h). 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 Ricoh Theta V has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 88, the GoPro HERO6 scored 88, the Sony HDRCX405 scored 88 and the Zoom Q2N scored 88.

More Expensive by $147

The Ricoh Theta V is $110 more expensive than the Canon Vixia HF R800, $33 more expensive than the GoPro HERO6, $133 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 and $147 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Fewer Sellers

The Ricoh Theta V is only stocked by 7 sellers, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 20 stores, the GoPro HERO6 is stocked by 10 sellers, the Sony HDRCX405 is stocked by 8 shops and the Zoom Q2N is stocked by 8 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
