6 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

Image Stabilizer

The Polaroid Cube has an image stabilizer, and so does the GoPro HERO7, whereas the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Full HD

The Polaroid Cube is Full HD, and so are the GoPro HERO7, the KitVision Escape HD5W and the Vivitar DVR794HD, whereas the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Waterproof

The Polaroid Cube is waterproof, and so are the GoPro HERO7, the KitVision Escape HD5W and the Vivitar DVR794HD, whereas the Xiaomi Yi 4K is 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 GoPro HERO7 scored 81 and the Vivitar DVR794HD scored 81.

$7 Cheaper

The Polaroid Cube costs $27.99, whereas the GoPro HERO7 is $49.99, the KitVision Escape HD5W is $44.92, the Vivitar DVR794HD is $34.99 and the Xiaomi Yi 4K is $45.99.

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.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

2% Heavier

The Polaroid Cube is a 59g camcorder. That's 33g lighter than the GoPro HERO7 (92g), 1g heavier than the KitVision Escape HD5W (58g), 9g lighter than the Vivitar DVR794HD (68g) and 36g lighter than the Xiaomi Yi 4K (95g). More ...

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

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

A Lot Smaller Total Megapixels

The Polaroid Cube has a total megapixels of 8MP, however the GoPro HERO7 is a 10MP camcorder (2MP bigger) and the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K are all 12MP camcorders (4MP 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.

Over One Year Older

The Polaroid Cube is older than the GoPro HERO7 by 19 months, older than the KitVision Escape HD5W by 13 months and older than the Xiaomi Yi 4K by 13 months.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Polaroid Cube has received 1 award, the Xiaomi Yi 4K has received 5 awards.

Hugely Lower User Review Score

The Polaroid Cube only has an average user rating of 76%, but the KitVision Escape HD5W has an average user rating of 95% (based on 4 reviews) and the Xiaomi Yi 4K has an average user rating of 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Polaroid camcorders have an average rating of only 70.6%, however GoPro has an average rating of 86.3%, KitVision has an average rating of 72.6% and Vivitar has an average rating of 78.6%.

6 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Xiaomi Yi 4K

Bigger Total Megapixels

The Xiaomi Yi 4K has a total megapixels of 12MP (as do the KitVision Escape HD5W and the Vivitar DVR794HD), but the GoPro HERO7 is only a 10MP camcorder (2MP smaller) and the Polaroid Cube is only an 8MP camcorder (4MP 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.

4 Times Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Xiaomi Yi 4K has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, however the GoPro HERO7, the KitVision Escape HD5W and the Vivitar DVR794HD 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Xiaomi Yi 4K has a built-in microphone (as does the GoPro HERO7), however the KitVision Escape HD5W, 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Xiaomi Yi 4K has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the GoPro HERO7 scored 81 and the Vivitar DVR794HD scored 81.

Five More Awards

The Xiaomi Yi 4K has received 5 awards, but the GoPro HERO7 has received no awards, the KitVision Escape HD5W has received 1 award, the Polaroid Cube has received 1 award and the Vivitar DVR794HD has received no awards.

Overall Reviews Are Marginally Better

Based on 98 reviews, the average overall review score of the Xiaomi Yi 4K is 90%, whereas the average rating of the KitVision Escape HD5W is 89% (based on 7 reviews), the average rating of the Polaroid Cube is 72% (based on 114 reviews) and the average rating of the Vivitar DVR794HD is 63% (based on 12 reviews).

16 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO7

Image Stabilizer

The GoPro HERO7 has an image stabilizer, and so does the Polaroid Cube, however the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Full HD

The GoPro HERO7 is Full HD, and so are the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD, however the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The GoPro HERO7 is a 0.01m closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.49m 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 GoPro HERO7 has a face detection, whereas the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Smile Detection

The GoPro HERO7 features smile detection, whereas the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K do not. 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.

Built-in Flash

The GoPro HERO7 has a built-in flash, whereas the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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 HERO7 supports remote operation, but the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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 HERO7 has a GPS, however the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K do not. More ...

GPS denotes whether the camcorder has a GPS system built in, allowing it to record precisely where the video was taken.

Built-in Microphone

The GoPro HERO7 has a built-in microphone (as does the Xiaomi Yi 4K), however the KitVision Escape HD5W, 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 GoPro HERO7 supports HDMI, and so does the KitVision Escape HD5W, whereas the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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 GoPro HERO7 features Wi-Fi, and so do the KitVision Escape HD5W and the Vivitar DVR794HD, whereas the Polaroid Cube and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Bluetooth

The GoPro HERO7 supports bluetooth, whereas the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Night Mode

The GoPro HERO7 has a night mode, but the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube, the Vivitar DVR794HD and the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.

Waterproof

The GoPro HERO7 is waterproof, and so are the KitVision Escape HD5W, the Polaroid Cube and the Vivitar DVR794HD, however the Xiaomi Yi 4K is 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!

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

GoPro camcorders have an average rating of 86.3%, but KitVision only has an average rating of 72.6%, Polaroid only has an average rating of 70.6%, Vivitar only has an average rating of 78.6% and Xiaomi only has an average rating of 66.4%.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO7

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

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

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 GoPro HERO7 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the KitVision Escape HD5W and the Vivitar DVR794HD), however the Xiaomi Yi 4K 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.
