Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

Read more Read less | Edit
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 Two Years
The Canon Vixia HF R800 was released two years after the Sony HDRCX405
Marginally Better User Reviews
The Canon Vixia HF R800 has an average user review score of 89% based on 25 reviews, however the Sony HDRCX405 has an average rating of 88% (based on 711 reviews).
13 Reasons For
45g Lighter
The Sony HDRCX405 is a 190 camcorder. That's 45g lighter than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (235g).

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

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

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels
The Sony HDRCX405 has a total megapixels of 9.2, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is only a 3.28MP camcorder (5.92MP smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Full HD
The Sony HDRCX405 is Full HD, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 is not.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)
The Sony HDRCX405 is a 2.29 camcorder. That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Vixia HF R800 (2.07MP).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Slightly Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)
Sony HDRCX405 is 2.29 (movie mode), but the Canon Vixia HF R800 is only a 2.07MP (movie mode) camcorder (0.22MP lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Face Detection
The Sony HDRCX405 has a face detection, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 does not.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Smile Detection
The Sony HDRCX405 features smile detection, whereas the Canon Vixia HF R800 does not.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Remote Operation
The Sony HDRCX405 supports remote operation, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 does not support this feature.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-in Microphone
The Sony HDRCX405 has a built-in microphone, however the Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have this feature.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Night Mode
The Sony HDRCX405 has a night mode, but the Canon Vixia HF R800 does not have this feature.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
$95 Cheaper
The Sony HDRCX405 is $95.16 cheaper than the Canon Vixia HF R800.
