10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

50% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N (1x) and 2x bigger 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an image stabilizer (as do the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRCX405), however the Zoom Q2N 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.

30fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a maximum frame rate of 60fps (as does the Sony HDRCX405), but the Zoom Q2N is only a 30fps camcorder (30fps slower). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

0.39m Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01m (as does the Sony HDRCX405), however the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

34% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3" screen size camcorder. That's 1.23" larger than the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N (1.77") and 0.3" larger 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.

HDMI

The Canon Vixia HF R800 supports HDMI (as do the Nikon Keymission 170, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO5 does 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!

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has received a Kagoo Score of 90, whereas the GoPro HERO5 scored 86, the Nikon Keymission 170 scored 86, the Sony HDRCX405 scored 88 and the Zoom Q2N scored 88.

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.

Newer by Four Months

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is 16 months newer than the GoPro HERO5, four months newer than the Nikon Keymission 170 and two years newer than the Sony HDRCX405

Better Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of 95%, but GoPro only has an average rating of 88.4%, Nikon only has an average rating of 75.8%, Sony only has an average rating of 93.8% and Zoom only has an average rating of 81.6%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

A Lot Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a weight of 235g, whereas the GoPro HERO5 is a 74g camcorder (161g lighter), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 134.5g camcorder (100.5g lighter), the Sony HDRCX405 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 3.28MP camcorder. That's 8.72MP smaller than the GoPro HERO5 (12MP), 5.02MP smaller than the Nikon Keymission 170 (8.3MP), 5.92MP smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (9.2MP) 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.

4 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Nikon Keymission 170 (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.

0.22MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.07MP, whereas the Sony HDRCX405 is a 2.29MP camcorder (0.22MP 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.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Canon Vixia HF R800 is only 2.07MP (movie mode). That's 0.22MP lower than the Sony HDRCX405 (2.29MP). 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 Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N), however the GoPro HERO5 and the Nikon Keymission 170 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 $60

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is $35 more expensive than the GoPro HERO5, $25 more expensive than the Nikon Keymission 170, $58 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 and $60 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

User Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The average user rating of the Canon Vixia HF R800 is 89%, whereas the average user rating of the GoPro HERO5 is 92% (based on 88 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Moderately Worse

16 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRCX405

Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDRCX405 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Nikon Keymission 170, whereas the Zoom Q2N does not. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Full HD

The Sony HDRCX405 is Full HD, and so is the Zoom Q2N, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

Faster Maximum Frame Rate

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

Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 2.29MP camcorder. That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (2.07MP). 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.

Marginally Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Sony HDRCX405 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 2.29MP, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is only a 2.07MP (movie mode) camcorder (0.22MP 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.

Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 0.01m closest focusing distance camcorder, and so does the Canon Vixia HF R800. That's 0.35m smaller than the Nikon Keymission 170 and 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.

Face Detection

The Sony HDRCX405 has a face detection, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRCX405 supports remote operation, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Sony HDRCX405 has a built-in microphone (as do the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 does 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 Sony HDRCX405 supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N, but the GoPro HERO5 does 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!

Night Mode

The Sony HDRCX405 has a night mode, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Expert Reviews Are a Lot Better

The average expert review score of the Sony HDRCX405 is 90% based on 1 review, but the average rating of the Nikon Keymission 170 is 74% (based on 19 reviews).

More Customers Recommend it

65.5% of 719 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX405, however only 41.7% of 187 customers recommend the GoPro HERO5, only 11% of 82 customers recommend the Nikon Keymission 170 and only 8.2% of 146 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N.

The Sony HDRCX405 reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX405 has a better price. Four people thought that it really wasn't expensive.

Has a Better Lens

The Sony HDRCX405 reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX405 has a better lens. Over 40 people thought that it had a good zoom and several people thought that it also had a brilliant lens, image stabiliser and had a good autofocus.

Better Great Audio Quality

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony HDRCX405 was better great audio quality. More than 10 people thought that it had a great audio quality.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX405

2x Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRCX405 has an optical zoom of 30x, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (2x bigger) and the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N are all 1x optical zoom camcorders (29x 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.

38% Heavier

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 190g camcorder. That's 45g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 116g heavier than the GoPro HERO5 (74g), 55.5g heavier than the Nikon Keymission 170 (134.5g) and 100g 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.

24% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX405 has a total megapixels of 9.2MP, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N are both 3MP camcorders (6.2MP smaller), the GoPro HERO5 is a 12MP camcorder (2.8MP bigger) and the Nikon Keymission 170 is an 8.3MP camcorder (0.9MP 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.

Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Sony HDRCX405 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 350x (digital) camcorder. That's 790x smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (1,140x). 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.

1 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder, whereas the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

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 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO5 and the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

0.3" Smaller Display Diagonal

Sony HDRCX405 is only 2.7" screen size, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3" screen size camcorder (0.3" larger) and the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Zoom Q2N are both 1.77" screen size camcorders (0.93" 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.

70% Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 0.92h battery life camcorder. That's 2.08h shorter than the Zoom Q2N (3h). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRCX405 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 90.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 8 retailers sells the Sony HDRCX405, however 16 shops sell the Canon Vixia HF R800 and 11 shops sell the Nikon Keymission 170. 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.
Over Two Years Older

The Sony HDRCX405 is older than the Canon Vixia HF R800 by two years, older than the GoPro HERO5 by nine months, older than the Nikon Keymission 170 by 21 months and older than the Zoom Q2N by two years.

A Bit Lower User Review Score

The Sony HDRCX405 has an average user rating of 88%, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews) and the GoPro HERO5 has an average user rating of 92% (based on 88 reviews).

A Bit Lower Overall Review Score

The Zoom Q2N costs $60 less than the Canon Vixia HF R800, costs $25 less than the GoPro HERO5 and costs $35.01 less than the Nikon Keymission 170.

Has a Better OK Noise Level

On average reviewers thought the Zoom Q2N has a better OK noise level. More than 20 people thought that it was quiet.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N has an optical zoom of 1x (as do the GoPro HERO5 and the Nikon Keymission 170), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (31x bigger) and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

16% Heavier

The Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder. That's 145g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g), 16g heavier than the GoPro HERO5 (74g), 44.5g lighter than the Nikon Keymission 170 (134.5g) and 100g lighter than the Sony HDRCX405 (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.

Significantly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N has a total megapixels of 3MP, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28MP camcorder (0.28MP bigger), the GoPro HERO5 is a 12MP camcorder (9MP bigger), the Nikon Keymission 170 is an 8.3MP camcorder (5.3MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX405 is a 9.2MP camcorder (6.2MP 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Zoom Q2N has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX405), but the Nikon Keymission 170 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.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Zoom Q2N does not have an image stabilizer, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

0.8 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Zoom Q2N is only 2 maximum aperture value, but the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.8 higher) and the Sony HDRCX405 is 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.

Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N is a 30fps camcorder. That's 30fps slower than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX405 (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 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.35m bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRCX405 (0.01m). 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 Sony HDRCX405), but the GoPro HERO5 and the Nikon Keymission 170 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

The Zoom Q2N has a display diagonal of 1.77", however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3" screen size camcorder (1.23" larger), the Nikon Keymission 170 is a 1.5" screen size camcorder (0.27" smaller) and the Sony HDRCX405 is a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.93" 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 90.

Less Retailers

Only 8 stores sells the Zoom Q2N, whereas 16 shops sell the Canon Vixia HF R800 and 11 shops sell the Nikon Keymission 170. 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.
Lower User Review Score

The Zoom Q2N's average user rating is 87%, however the Canon Vixia HF R800's is 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO5's is 92% (based on 88 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX405's is 88% (based on 716 reviews).

The Zoom Q2N's average overall rating is 87%, however the Canon Vixia HF R800's is 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO5's is 92% (based on 88 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX405's is 89% (based on 717 reviews).

9 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO5

161g Lighter

43% Bigger Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO5 is a 12MP camcorder. That's 9MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 3.7MP bigger than the Nikon Keymission 170 (8.3MP) and 2.8MP 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.

Image Stabilizer

The GoPro HERO5 has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Nikon Keymission 170 and the Sony HDRCX405), however the Zoom Q2N does not have this feature. More ...

The GoPro HERO5 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Nikon Keymission 170, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 does 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.

Wi-Fi

The GoPro HERO5 features Wi-Fi (as does the Nikon Keymission 170), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, 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.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO5

Smaller Optical Zoom

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.

4 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The GoPro HERO5 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Nikon Keymission 170 (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.

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The GoPro HERO5 is 16 months older than the Canon Vixia HF R800, one year older than the Nikon Keymission 170 and 16 months older than the Zoom Q2N.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Keymission 170

4 Times Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

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

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

Image Stabilizer

The Nikon Keymission 170 has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5 and the Sony HDRCX405), however the Zoom Q2N 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.

27% Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a maximum aperture number of 2.8. That's 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX405 (1.8) and 0.8 higher than 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a built-in microphone, and so do the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 does 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 Nikon Keymission 170 supports HDMI (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO5 does 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 Nikon Keymission 170 features Wi-Fi (as does the GoPro HERO5), whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, 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 Nikon Keymission 170 supports bluetooth, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, 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.

Waterproof

The Nikon Keymission 170 is a waterproof camcorder, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO5, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N 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!

One More Award

The Nikon Keymission 170 has received 1 award from an expert review site, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 has received no awards, the GoPro HERO5 has received no awards, the Sony HDRCX405 has received no awards and the Zoom Q2N has received no awards.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Keymission 170

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Nikon Keymission 170 is a 1x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO5 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.

A Lot Heavier

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a weight of 134.5g, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (100.5g heavier), the GoPro HERO5 is a 74g camcorder (60.5g lighter), the Sony HDRCX405 is a 190g camcorder (55.5g heavier) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (44.5g 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 Nikon Keymission 170 is an 8.3MP camcorder. That's 5.3MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 3.7MP smaller than the GoPro HERO5 (12MP) and 0.9MP 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.

0.39m Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Nikon Keymission 170 has a closest focusing distance of 0.4m, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Zoom Q2N are all 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorders (0.04m 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.

50% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon Keymission 170 is a 1.5" screen size camcorder. That's 1.5" smaller than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (3"), 1.2" smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (2.7") and 0.27" smaller 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon Keymission 170 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 90, the Sony HDRCX405 scored 88 and the Zoom Q2N scored 88.

More Expensive by $35

The Nikon Keymission 170 is $10 more expensive than the GoPro HERO5, $33 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 and $35 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Fewer Sellers

The Nikon Keymission 170 is only stocked by 11 shops, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is stocked by 16 shops. More ...

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

The Nikon Keymission 170 is four months older than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and four months older than the Zoom Q2N.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The average expert rating of the Nikon Keymission 170 is only 74%, whereas the average expert rating of the Sony HDRCX405 is 90% (based on 1 review).
