16 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO8

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The GoPro HERO8 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 Ricoh THETA SC, the Sony HDRCX440B 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 GoPro HERO8 has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Sony HDRCX440B), but the Ricoh THETA SC 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.

Full HD

The GoPro HERO8 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Ricoh THETA SC 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.

128GB Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The GoPro HERO8 has a maximum memory card size of 256, whereas the Zoom Q2N is only a 128GB maximum memory card size camcorder (128GB smaller). 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.

Built-in Flash

The GoPro HERO8 has a built-in flash, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Ricoh THETA SC, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N do not 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.

Remote Operation

The GoPro HERO8 supports remote operation, and so does the Ricoh THETA SC, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800, 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.

GPS

The GoPro HERO8 has a GPS, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Ricoh THETA SC, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N do not have this feature. More ...

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

Wi-Fi

The GoPro HERO8 features Wi-Fi (as do the Ricoh THETA SC and the Sony HDRCX440B), however the Canon Vixia HF R800 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 GoPro HERO8 supports bluetooth, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Ricoh THETA SC, the Sony HDRCX440B 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 GoPro HERO8 is a waterproof camcorder, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the Ricoh THETA SC, the Sony HDRCX440B 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!

Better Kagoo Score

The GoPro HERO8 has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 scored 87, the Ricoh THETA SC scored only 80, the Sony HDRCX440B scored 88 and the Zoom Q2N scored 88.

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 Three Years

The GoPro HERO8 was released three years after the Canon Vixia HF R800, released three years after the Ricoh THETA SC, released three years after the Sony HDRCX440B and released three years after the Zoom Q2N

One More Award

The GoPro HERO8 has received 1 award from an expert review site, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 has received no awards, the Ricoh THETA SC has received no awards, the Sony HDRCX440B has received no awards and the Zoom Q2N has received no awards.

Much Better Expert Reviews

The GoPro HERO8 has an average expert review score of 90% based on 3 reviews, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average rating of 70% (based on 1 review) and the Ricoh THETA SC has an average rating of 77% (based on 6 reviews).

Much Better User Reviews

The GoPro HERO8 has an average user review score of 100% based on 2 reviews, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average rating of 89% (based on 25 reviews), the Ricoh THETA SC has an average rating of 87% (based on 27 reviews), the Sony HDRCX440B has an average rating of 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the Zoom Q2N has an average rating of 87% (based on 71 reviews).

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO8

Smaller Optical Zoom

The GoPro HERO8 is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the Ricoh THETA SC 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.

23% Heavier

The GoPro HERO8 has a weight of 126, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 235g camcorder (109g heavier), the Ricoh THETA SC is a 102g camcorder (24g lighter), the Sony HDRCX440B is a 190g camcorder (64g heavier) and the Zoom Q2N is a 90g camcorder (36g 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.

2MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO8 is a 12 camcorder. That's 9MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 2MP smaller than the Ricoh THETA SC (14MP) and 9.71MP 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.

More Expensive by $182

The GoPro HERO8 is $146 more expensive than the Canon Vixia HF R800, $119 more expensive than the Ricoh THETA SC, $156 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX440B and $182 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Worse Brand

GoPro camcorders have an average rating of only 92%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 94.9%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HERO8 in the US is $319.00 and in total we found 16 prices for it.

8 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), 36g lighter than the GoPro HERO8 (126g), 12g lighter than the Ricoh THETA SC (102g) 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 has a maximum aperture number of 2 (as does the Ricoh THETA SC), however 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 HERO8 and the Ricoh THETA SC, however 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 SC), however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO8 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 does the Canon Vixia HF R800, whereas the GoPro HERO8, the Ricoh THETA SC 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 has a maximum battery life of 3. That's 2h longer than the Ricoh THETA SC (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.

$26 Cheaper

The Zoom Q2N is $35.98 cheaper than the Canon Vixia HF R800, $181.99 cheaper than the GoPro HERO8, $62.94 cheaper than the Ricoh THETA SC and $25.94 cheaper than the Sony HDRCX440B.

Better Great Audio Quality

On average reviewers thought the Zoom Q2N was better great audio quality. Over 30 people thought that it had a great audio quality.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the GoPro HERO8 and the Ricoh THETA SC), whereas 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.

Hugely Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N has a total megapixels of 3, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is a 3.28MP camcorder (0.28MP bigger), the GoPro HERO8 is a 12MP camcorder (9MP bigger), the Ricoh THETA SC 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.

4 Times Lower Maximum Video 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 Ricoh THETA SC and the Sony HDRCX440B), however the GoPro HERO8 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 (As does the the Ricoh THETA SC), but the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO8 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 SC. 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.

50% Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Zoom Q2N is a 128 maximum memory card size camcorder. That's 128GB smaller than the GoPro HERO8 (256GB). 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.

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 SC (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 SC), however the GoPro HERO8 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

The Zoom Q2N is a 1.77 screen size camcorder, whereas 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the GoPro HERO8 scored 90.

Fewer Sellers

Only 7 sellers sells the Zoom Q2N, but 16 sellers sell the Canon Vixia HF R800 and 16 sellers sell the GoPro HERO8. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this camcorder, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over Two Years Older

The Zoom Q2N is older than the GoPro HERO8 by three years and older than the Sony HDRCX440B by one month. The Zoom Q2N is the same age as the Canon Vixia HF R800.

A Lot Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Canon Vixia HF R800 is 89% (based on 25 reviews), the GoPro HERO8 is 100% (based on 2 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440B is 90% (based on 122 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87%, whereas the average overall rating of the GoPro HERO8 is 94% (based on 5 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440B is 90% (based on 122 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 7.7% of 155 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N, but 14.6% of 48 customers recommend the Ricoh THETA SC and 61.6% of 164 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440B.

Worse Brand

Zoom camcorders have an average rating of only 82.5%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%, GoPro has an average rating of 92%, Ricoh has an average rating of 83% and Sony has an average rating of 94.9%.

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).

0.2 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX440B has a maximum aperture number of 1.8, however the Ricoh THETA SC 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.

10 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 HERO8, the Ricoh THETA SC 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 do the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX440B), whereas the Ricoh THETA SC 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, however the Ricoh THETA SC 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, but the Ricoh THETA SC 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, whereas the Ricoh THETA SC 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

Canon Vixia HF R800 is 3 screen size. 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 does the Zoom Q2N), but the GoPro HERO8, the Ricoh THETA SC 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 SC (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.

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%, however GoPro only has an average rating of 92%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 83%, Sony only has an average rating of 94.9% and Zoom only has an average rating of 82.5%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Vixia HF R800

A Lot Heavier

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has a weight of 235, but the GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder (109g lighter), the Ricoh THETA SC is a 102g camcorder (133g 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 8.72MP smaller than the GoPro HERO8 (12MP), 10.72MP smaller than the Ricoh THETA SC (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 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 Ricoh THETA SC, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO8 (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 a Built-in Flash

The Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Ricoh THETA SC and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO8 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the GoPro HERO8 scored 90, the Sony HDRCX440B scored 88 and the Zoom Q2N scored 88.

More Expensive by $36

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is $10 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX440B and $36 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Older by Over Two Years

The Canon Vixia HF R800 is three years older than the GoPro HERO8 and one month older than the Sony HDRCX440B. The Canon Vixia HF R800 is the same age as the Zoom Q2N.

Expert Review Rating is Hugely Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800 only has an average expert score of 70%, but the GoPro HERO8 has an average expert rating of 90% (based on 3 reviews) and the Ricoh THETA SC has an average expert rating of 77% (based on 6 reviews).

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user score of 89%, but the GoPro HERO8 has an average user rating of 100% (based on 2 reviews) and the Sony HDRCX440B has an average user rating of 90% (based on 122 reviews).

The cheapest price that we could find for the Vixia HF R800 in the US is $172.99 and in total we found 16 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh THETA SC

Bigger Total Megapixels

The Ricoh THETA SC is a 14 camcorder. That's 11MP bigger than the Canon Vixia HF R800 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 2MP bigger than the GoPro HERO8 (12MP) 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.

10% Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Ricoh THETA SC has a maximum aperture number of 2, 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 SC is a Full HD camcorder (as are the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N), however 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 SC supports remote operation, and so does the GoPro HERO8, but the Canon Vixia HF R800, 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 SC has a built-in microphone, and so does the Zoom Q2N, however the Canon Vixia HF R800, the GoPro HERO8 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.
