7 Reasons For for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

62% Lighter

The Zoom Q2N is a 90 camcorder. That's 145g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 73g lighter than the GoPro HERO3 (163g), 35g lighter than the Ricoh Theta S (125g) and 100g lighter than the Sony HDRCX440B (190g). More ...

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

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

0.2 Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Zoom Q2N is a 2 maximum aperture value camcorder (as does the Ricoh Theta S), whereas the Sony HDRCX440B is only a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.2 lower). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Full HD

The Zoom Q2N is Full HD, and so are the GoPro HERO3 and the Ricoh Theta S, 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Zoom Q2N has a built-in microphone (as does the Ricoh Theta S), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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 Zoom Q2N supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Ricoh Theta S, but the GoPro HERO3 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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!

40% Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Zoom Q2N is a 3 battery life camcorder. That's 2h longer than the Ricoh Theta S (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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the GoPro HERO3 scored 85 and the Ricoh Theta S scored 86.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the GoPro HERO3 and the Ricoh Theta S), 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.

Vastly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N has a total megapixels of 3, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28MP camcorder (0.28MP bigger), the GoPro HERO3 is a 5MP camcorder (2MP bigger), the Ricoh Theta S is a 14MP camcorder (11MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX440B is a 2.29MP camcorder (0.71MP 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.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Zoom Q2N does not have an image stabilizer (As does the the Ricoh Theta S), however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3 and the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N is a 30 camcorder, and so does the Ricoh Theta S. That's 30fps slower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (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.

Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Zoom Q2N is a 0.36 closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.26m bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Ricoh Theta S (0.1m). 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 and the Ricoh Theta S), whereas the GoPro HERO3 and the Sony HDRCX440B have this feature. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

1.23" Smaller Display Diagonal

Zoom Q2N is only 1.77 screen size, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3" screen size camcorder (1.23" 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.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 8 retailers sells the Zoom Q2N, however 19 stores sell the Canon Vixia HF R800 and 10 shops sell the Ricoh Theta S. More ...

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

The Zoom Q2N is older than the Sony HDRCX440B by one month. The Zoom Q2N is the same age as the Canon Vixia HF R800.

Lower User Review Score

The Zoom Q2N has an average user rating of 87%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO3 has an average user rating of 92% (based on 58 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440B has an average user rating of 90% (based on 122 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 7.9% of 152 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N, however 23.7% of 396 customers recommend the Ricoh Theta S and 61.6% of 164 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440B.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO3

Full HD

The GoPro HERO3 is Full HD, and so are the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N, 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.

A Lot Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The GoPro HERO3 is a 5 (movie mode) camcorder, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is only a 2.07MP (movie mode) camcorder (2.93MP lower). 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.

Twice As High Still Image Resolution

The GoPro HERO3 supports a still image resolution of 2592 x 1944, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Ricoh Theta S (2048 x 1024). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

User Reviews Are Moderately Better

Based on 58 user reviews, the average review score of the GoPro HERO3 is 92%, however the average rating of the Canon Vixia HF R800 is 89% (based on 25 reviews), the average rating of the Ricoh Theta S is 84% (based on 256 reviews), the average rating of the Sony HDRCX440B is 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the average rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87% (based on 71 reviews).

Overall Reviews Are Moderately Better

Based on 58 reviews, the average review score of the GoPro HERO3 is 92%, however the average rating of the Canon Vixia HF R800 is 76% (based on 26 reviews), the average rating of the Ricoh Theta S is 79% (based on 327 reviews), the average rating of the Sony HDRCX440B is 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the average rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87% (based on 71 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO3

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The GoPro HERO3 has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N), however 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.

31% Heavier

The GoPro HERO3 is a 163 camcorder. That's 72g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 38g heavier than the Ricoh Theta S (125g), 27g lighter than the Sony HDRCX440B (190g) and 73g 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 GoPro HERO3 has a total megapixels of 5, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N are both 3MP camcorders (2MP smaller), the Ricoh Theta S is a 14MP camcorder (9MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX440B is a 2.29MP camcorder (2.71MP 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The GoPro HERO3 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 87, the Ricoh Theta S scored 86, the Sony HDRCX440B scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N scored 87.

$10 More Expensive

The GoPro HERO3 is more expensive than the Canon Vixia HF R800 by $5, more expensive than the Ricoh Theta S by $10 and more expensive than the Zoom Q2N by $8.

Less Retailers

Only 4 shops sells the GoPro HERO3, whereas 19 sellers sell the Canon Vixia HF R800, 10 shops sell the Ricoh Theta S, 6 sellers sell the Sony HDRCX440B and 8 sellers sell the Zoom Q2N. 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.
Over Four Years Older

The GoPro HERO3 is older than the Canon Vixia HF R800 by four years, older than the Ricoh Theta S by three years, older than the Sony HDRCX440B by four years and older than the Zoom Q2N by four years.

Worse Brand

GoPro camcorders have an average rating of only 91.9%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HERO3 in the US is $139.99 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

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.

0.2 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX440B is a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder, whereas the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N are both 2 maximum aperture value camcorders (0.2 higher). 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.

$57 More Expensive

The Sony HDRCX440B is more expensive than the Canon Vixia HF R800 by $52, more expensive than the GoPro HERO3 by $47, more expensive than the Ricoh Theta S by $57 and more expensive than the Zoom Q2N by $55.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 6 stores sells the Sony HDRCX440B, however 19 sellers sell the Canon Vixia HF R800, 10 sellers sell the Ricoh Theta S and 8 retailers sell the Zoom Q2N. More ...

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

The Sony HDRCX440B has an average user rating of 90%, but the GoPro HERO3 has an average user rating of 92% (based on 58 reviews).

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

50% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32 optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the GoPro HERO3, the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N (1x) and 2x bigger 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an image stabilizer (as does the Sony HDRCX440B), but the GoPro HERO3, the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N 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.

30fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a maximum frame rate of 60, whereas the Ricoh Theta S 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.

A Lot Larger Internal Storage Capacity

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an internal storage capacity of 32, however the Ricoh Theta S is only an 8GB internal storage capacity camcorder (24GB smaller). 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.

0.35m Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01, but the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N are both 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorders (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.

30% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a display diagonal of 3. That's 1.23" 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.

HDMI

The Canon Vixia HF R800 supports HDMI (as do the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N), however the GoPro HERO3 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 Video Recording Time

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 17.33 video recording time camcorder. That's 14.43h longer than the Ricoh Theta S (2.9h). 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 87, however the GoPro HERO3 scored 85 and the Ricoh Theta S scored 86.

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 Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of 95%, whereas GoPro only has an average rating of 91.9%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 82.2% and Zoom only has an average rating of 82.6%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

A Lot Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a weight of 235, however the GoPro HERO3 is a 163g camcorder (72g lighter), the Ricoh Theta S is a 125g camcorder (110g lighter), the Sony HDRCX440B is a 190g camcorder (45g lighter) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (145g 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 Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28 camcorder. That's 1.72MP smaller than the GoPro HERO3 (5MP), 10.72MP smaller than the Ricoh Theta S (14MP), 0.99MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440B (2.29MP) and 0.28MP bigger than the Zoom Q2N (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.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 2.07 (movie mode) camcorder. That's 2.93MP lower than the GoPro HERO3 (5MP). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Ricoh Theta S and the Zoom Q2N), but the GoPro HERO3 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.

More Expensive by $5

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is $5 more expensive than the Ricoh Theta S.

Older by One Month

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is one month older than the Sony HDRCX440B. The Canon Vixia HF R800 is the same age as the Zoom Q2N.

Expert Review Rating is a Little Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800's average expert score is only 70%, however the Ricoh Theta S's is 73% (based on 71 reviews).

User Review Rating is a Little Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800's average user score is 89%, however the GoPro HERO3's is 92% (based on 58 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440B's is 90% (based on 122 reviews).

The cheapest price that we could find for the Vixia HF R800 in the US is $135.00 and in total we found 19 prices for it.

RICOH THETA S - REVIEW - [GERMAN/DEUTSCH - FullHD]

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh Theta S

46% Bigger Total Megapixels

The Ricoh Theta S is a 14 camcorder. That's 11MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 9MP bigger than the GoPro HERO3 (5MP) and 11.71MP 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 Aperture Number

The Ricoh Theta S is a 2 maximum aperture value camcorder, and so does the Zoom Q2N. That's 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.

Full HD

The Ricoh Theta S is a Full HD camcorder (as are the GoPro HERO3 and the Zoom Q2N), 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.

Remote Operation

The Ricoh Theta S supports remote operation, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3, the Sony HDRCX440B 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 Ricoh Theta S has a built-in microphone, and so does the Zoom Q2N, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3 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 Ricoh Theta S supports HDMI (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N), but the GoPro HERO3 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!

Wi-Fi

The Ricoh Theta S features Wi-Fi (as does the Sony HDRCX440B), but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3 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.

Cheaper by $5

The Ricoh Theta S costs $129.75, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is $135.00, the GoPro HERO3 is $139.99 and the Sony HDRCX440B is $187.08.

Five More Awards

The Ricoh Theta S has received 5 awards from expert review sites, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 has received no awards, the GoPro HERO3 has received no awards, the Sony HDRCX440B has received no awards and the Zoom Q2N has received no awards.

Moderately Better Expert Reviews

Based on 71 reviews, the Ricoh Theta S has an average expert review score of 73%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average rating of 70% (based on 1 review).

Better in Terms of Size

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Ricoh Theta S was better in terms of size. Several people thought that it was very compact and was easy to carry around.

Easier to Use

On average reviewers thought the Ricoh Theta S was easier to use. Over 30 people thought that it was really easy to use and several people thought that it also had excellent controls, was comfortable and easy to hold and was very easy to setup.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh Theta S

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Ricoh Theta S is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO3 and the Zoom Q2N. 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.

Heavier

The Ricoh Theta S has a weight of 125, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (110g heavier), the GoPro HERO3 is a 163g camcorder (38g heavier), the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Ricoh Theta S does not have an image stabilizer (As does the the Zoom Q2N), however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3 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.

A Lot Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Ricoh Theta S has a maximum frame rate of 30 (as does the Zoom Q2N), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 60fps camcorder (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.

24GB Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The Ricoh Theta S has an internal storage capacity of 8, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 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.

A Lot Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Ricoh Theta S has a closest focusing distance of 0.1, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N are both 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorders (0.26m 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Ricoh Theta S does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO3 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Ricoh Theta S does not have a built-in display, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO3, the Sony HDRCX440B 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.

Only 2048 X 1024 Still Image Resolution

The Ricoh Theta S supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1024, but the GoPro HERO3 supports a still image resolution of 2592 x 1944. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

2h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Ricoh Theta S is a 1 battery life camcorder, whereas the Zoom Q2N is a 3h battery life camcorder (2h 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.

84% Shorter Video Recording Time

The Ricoh Theta S is a 2.9 video recording time camcorder. That's 14.43h 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 S has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 87, the Sony HDRCX440B scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N scored 87.

Not As Many Stockists

The Ricoh Theta S is only stocked by 10 retailers, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 19 retailers. 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 Over One Year

The Ricoh Theta S is 15 months older than the Canon Vixia HF R800, 16 months older than the Sony HDRCX440B and 15 months older than the Zoom Q2N.

User Review Rating is Worse

The Ricoh Theta S has an average user score of 84%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO3 has an average user rating of 92% (based on 58 reviews), the Sony HDRCX440B has an average user rating of 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the Zoom Q2N has an average user rating of 87% (based on 71 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 23.7% of 396 customers recommend the Ricoh Theta S, however 61.6% of 164 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440B.
