10 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

301g Lighter

The Polaroid Cube has a weight of 59, but the Canon Legria HF M52 is a 360g camcorder (301g heavier), the GE DV1CO is a 145g camcorder (86g heavier), the ION DashCam is a 110g camcorder (51g heavier) and the Vivitar DVR794HD is a 68g camcorder (9g heavier). More ...

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

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

Image Stabilizer

The Polaroid Cube has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Legria HF M52, the GE DV1CO and the ION DashCam), whereas the Vivitar DVR794HD 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.

Waterproof

The Polaroid Cube is a waterproof camcorder (as are the GE DV1CO and the Vivitar DVR794HD), whereas the Canon Legria HF M52 and the ION DashCam are not. More ...

'Waterproof' denotes whether the camcorder is resistant against liquid - so can be safely immersed in water without causing problems.

Waterproof cameras allow you to safely take your camera out on a boat or to the beach without worrying about damage. It also allows for some visually stunning underwater videos!

Better Kagoo Score

The Polaroid Cube has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Canon Legria HF M52 scored 80, the GE DV1CO scored 80, the ION DashCam scored 77 and the Vivitar DVR794HD scored 80.

Cheaper by $4

The Polaroid Cube costs $26.50, whereas the Canon Legria HF M52 is $49.95, the GE DV1CO is $30.56, the ION DashCam is $50.00 and the Vivitar DVR794HD is $35.20.

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.

Newer by Two Years

The Polaroid Cube was released five years ago, but the Canon Legria HF M52 was released nine years ago, the GE DV1CO was released eight years ago, the ION DashCam was released seven years ago and the Vivitar DVR794HD was released eight years ago

Better Manufacturer's Guarantee by One Year

The Polaroid Cube comes with a two year guarantee from the manufacturer, but the ION DashCam has a one year guarantee.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

CNET.com.au and CNET.com both gave the Polaroid Cube a better review score. More ...

CNET.com.au: Polaroid Cube = 70% vs Canon Legria HF M52 = 68%

CNET.com: Polaroid Cube = 70% vs GE DV1CO = 58%
Better Great Video Quality

The Polaroid Cube reviewers thought the Polaroid Cube was better great video quality. Over 80 people thought that it had a good video quality and over 30 people thought that it also had a great picture quality. Analysis of the reviews also revealed that seven people thought that it had a great recording quality.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Polaroid Cube is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GE DV1CO, the ION DashCam and the Vivitar DVR794HD. That's 9x smaller than the Canon Legria HF M52 (10x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

34% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Polaroid Cube is an 8 camcorder. That's 5.63MP bigger than the Canon Legria HF M52 (2.37MP), 2.92MP bigger than the GE DV1CO (5.08MP), 5MP bigger than the ION DashCam (3MP) and 4MP smaller than the Vivitar DVR794HD (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.

Three Less Awards

The Polaroid Cube has only received 1 award, however the Canon Legria HF M52 has received 4 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Much Worse

The Polaroid Cube only has an average expert score of 68%, but the Canon Legria HF M52 has an average expert rating of 80% (based on 19 reviews).

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The Polaroid Cube only has an average user score of 79%, but the GE DV1CO has an average user rating of 81% (based on 85 reviews).

Worse Brand

Polaroid camcorders have an average rating of only 69.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, ION has an average rating of 75.6% and Vivitar has an average rating of 81.4%.

4 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Digitaltrends.com, Les Numeriques.com, Lydogbillede.dk and Lydogbilde.no all gave the Polaroid Cube a lower review score. More ...

Digitaltrends.com: Polaroid Cube = 70% vs Canon Legria HF M52 = 80%

Les Numeriques.com: Polaroid Cube = 20% vs Canon Legria HF M52 = 60%

Lydogbillede.dk: Polaroid Cube = 50% vs GE DV1CO = 83%

19 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Legria HF M52

A Lot Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Legria HF M52 has an optical zoom of 10, but the GE DV1CO, the ION DashCam, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD are all only 1x optical zoom camcorders (9x smaller). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

50% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Canon Legria HF M52 is a 200 (digital) camcorder. That's 196x bigger than the GE DV1CO (4x). 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon Legria HF M52 has an image stabilizer, and so do the GE DV1CO, the ION DashCam and the Polaroid Cube, whereas the Vivitar DVR794HD 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.

A Lot Lower Minimum Aperture Number

The Canon Legria HF M52 is a 1.8 minimum aperture camcorder, whereas the GE DV1CO is a 2.8 minimum aperture camcorder (1 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 smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the device to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Canon Legria HF M52 is a 64 maximum memory card size camcorder. That's 32GB larger than the GE DV1CO (32GB). 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.

94% Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Legria HF M52 is a 0.1 closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 1.4m smaller than the GE DV1CO (1.5m) and 0.4m smaller than the Vivitar DVR794HD (0.5m). 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 Canon Legria HF M52 has a face detection, and so does the GE DV1CO, but the ION DashCam, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD do not. More ...

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

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

Built-in Flash

The Canon Legria HF M52 has a built-in flash, but the GE DV1CO, the ION DashCam, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Canon Legria HF M52 is 3 screen size, but the GE DV1CO and the ION DashCam are both only 2.72" screen size camcorders (0.28" 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Canon Legria HF M52 has a built-in microphone (as does the GE DV1CO), whereas the ION DashCam, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD 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 Canon Legria HF M52 supports HDMI, and so do the GE DV1CO and the ION DashCam, but the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD 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!

Wi-Fi

The Canon Legria HF M52 features Wi-Fi, and so does the Vivitar DVR794HD, but the GE DV1CO, the ION DashCam and the Polaroid Cube do 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.

10.75h Longer Video Recording Time

The Canon Legria HF M52 has a video recording time of 12.25, however the GE DV1CO is only a 1.5h video recording time camcorder (10.75h 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.

Night Mode

The Canon Legria HF M52 has a night mode, however the GE DV1CO, the ION DashCam, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD do not have this feature. 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.

Four More Awards

The Canon Legria HF M52 has received 4 awards, however the GE DV1CO has received 1 award, the ION DashCam has received no awards, the Polaroid Cube has received 1 award and the Vivitar DVR794HD has received no awards.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Legria HF M52

Heavier

The Canon Legria HF M52 is a 360 camcorder. That's 215g heavier than the GE DV1CO (145g), 250g heavier than the ION DashCam (110g), 301g heavier than the Polaroid Cube (59g) and 292g heavier than the Vivitar DVR794HD (68g). More ...

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

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

9.63MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Legria HF M52 has a total megapixels of 2.37, however the GE DV1CO is a 5.08MP camcorder (2.71MP bigger), the ION DashCam is a 3MP camcorder (0.63MP bigger), the Polaroid Cube is an 8MP camcorder (5.63MP bigger) and the Vivitar DVR794HD is a 12MP camcorder (9.63MP bigger). More ...

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

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

59% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Legria HF M52 is a 2.07 camcorder. That's 2.96MP lower than the GE DV1CO (5.03MP). 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.

9.93MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon Legria HF M52 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 2.07, however the Vivitar DVR794HD is a 12MP (movie mode) camcorder (9.93MP higher). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon Legria HF M52 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Polaroid Cube scored 83.

$23 More Expensive

The Canon Legria HF M52 is more expensive than the GE DV1CO by $19, more expensive than the Polaroid Cube by $23 and more expensive than the Vivitar DVR794HD by $15.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 seller sell the Canon Legria HF M52, however 8 shops sell the Polaroid Cube and 4 shops sell the Vivitar DVR794HD. More ...

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

The Canon Legria HF M52 is older than the GE DV1CO by one month, older than the ION DashCam by 17 months, older than the Polaroid Cube by four years and older than the Vivitar DVR794HD by nine months.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

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).
