3 Reasons For for Choosing the Coby CAM5005

Full HD

The Coby CAM5005 is Full HD, and so are the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Ricoh Theta M15 and the Rollei S30, however the Midland XTC100 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.

A Lot Larger Display Diagonal

The Coby CAM5005 is a 2.7" screen size camcorder, whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam is only a 2.4" screen size camcorder (0.3" smaller) and the Rollei S30 is only a 1.5" screen size camcorder (1.2" 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.

HDMI

The Coby CAM5005 supports HDMI, and so does the Rollei S30, whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Midland XTC100 and the Ricoh Theta M15 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!

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Coby CAM5005

Heavier

The Coby CAM5005 is an 82g camcorder. That's 32g heavier than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam (50g), 11g lighter than the Midland XTC100 (93g), 13g lighter than the Ricoh Theta M15 (95g) and 7g heavier than the Rollei S30 (75g). More ...

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

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

10MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Coby CAM5005 has a total megapixels of 5MP, but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam is an 8MP camcorder (3MP bigger), the Midland XTC100 is a 5.2MP camcorder (0.2MP bigger), the Ricoh Theta M15 is a 15MP camcorder (10MP bigger) and the Rollei S30 is a 2MP camcorder (3MP 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.

Half As High Maximum Video Resolution

The Coby CAM5005 has a max video resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels pixels (as is the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam), however the Ricoh Theta M15 and the Rollei S30 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.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Coby CAM5005 does not have an image stabilizer (As do the the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Ricoh Theta M15 and the Rollei S30), but the Midland XTC100 has 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Coby CAM5005 has only received a Kagoo Score of 65, whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam scored 78, the Midland XTC100 scored 75, the Ricoh Theta M15 scored 74 and the Rollei S30 scored 71.

£43 More Expensive

The Coby CAM5005 is more expensive than the Midland XTC100 by £43 and more expensive than the Rollei S30 by £7.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 seller sell the Coby CAM5005, but 3 retailers sell the Midland XTC100, 3 shops sell the Ricoh Theta M15 and 2 sellers sell the Rollei S30. More ...

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

The Coby CAM5005 is older than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam by seven months, older than the Midland XTC100 by one month, older than the Ricoh Theta M15 by three years and older than the Rollei S30 by 21 months.

Worse Brand

Coby camcorders have an average rating of only 55.5%, but Bushnell has an average rating of 70.6%, Midland has an average rating of 60.8%, Ricoh has an average rating of 86.6% and Rollei has an average rating of 59.6%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the CAM5005 in the UK is £72.74 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

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.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Rollei S30

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Rollei S30 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Ricoh Theta M15), but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Coby CAM5005 have a max video resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels and the Midland XTC100 only has a max video resolution of 640 x 480 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.

Full HD

The Rollei S30 is Full HD, and so are the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Coby CAM5005 and the Ricoh Theta M15, but the Midland XTC100 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.

34% Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Rollei S30 is a 60fps camcorder. That's 30fps faster than the Midland XTC100 (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.

Built-in Microphone

The Rollei S30 has a built-in microphone (as does the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam), but the Coby CAM5005, the Midland XTC100 and the Ricoh Theta M15 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 Rollei S30 supports HDMI, and so does the Coby CAM5005, however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Midland XTC100 and the Ricoh Theta M15 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 Rollei S30 features Wi-Fi, however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Coby CAM5005, the Midland XTC100 and the Ricoh Theta M15 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.

User Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 1 user review, the average review score of the Rollei S30 is 100%, however the average rating of the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam is 82% (based on 136 reviews).

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Rollei S30

25% Heavier

The Rollei S30 is a 75g camcorder. That's 25g heavier than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam (50g), 7g lighter than the Coby CAM5005 (82g), 18g lighter than the Midland XTC100 (93g) and 20g lighter than the Ricoh Theta M15 (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.

13MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Rollei S30 has a total megapixels of 2MP, whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam is an 8MP camcorder (6MP bigger), the Coby CAM5005 and the Midland XTC100 are both 5.2MP camcorders (3.2MP bigger) and the Ricoh Theta M15 is a 15MP camcorder (13MP 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.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Rollei S30 does not have an image stabilizer (As do the the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Coby CAM5005 and the Ricoh Theta M15), whereas the Midland XTC100 has 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Rollei S30 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Midland XTC100), but the Coby CAM5005 and the Ricoh Theta M15 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.

A Lot Smaller Display Diagonal

The Rollei S30 has a display diagonal of 1.5", however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Coby CAM5005 are both 2.7" screen size camcorders (1.2" 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 Rollei S30 has received a Kagoo Score of 71, however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam scored 78, the Midland XTC100 scored 75 and the Ricoh Theta M15 scored 74.

£36 More Expensive

The Rollei S30 is more expensive than the Midland XTC100 by £36.

Less Retailers

Only 2 stores sells the Rollei S30, whereas 3 stores sell the Midland XTC100 and 3 stores sell the Ricoh Theta M15. More ...

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

The Rollei S30 is older than the Ricoh Theta M15 by 10 months.

Worse Brand

Rollei camcorders have an average rating of only 59.6%, whereas Bushnell has an average rating of 70.6%, Midland has an average rating of 60.8% and Ricoh has an average rating of 86.6%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the S30 in the UK is £65.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh Theta M15

47% Bigger Total Megapixels

The Ricoh Theta M15 is a 15MP camcorder. That's 7MP bigger than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam (8MP), 9.8MP bigger than the Coby CAM5005 and the Midland XTC100 (5.2MP) and 13MP bigger than the Rollei S30 (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.

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Ricoh Theta M15 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Rollei S30, which is twice as high maximum video resolution as the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Coby CAM5005 (1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels) and 7 times higher maximum video resolution as the Midland XTC100 (640 x 480 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.

Full HD

The Ricoh Theta M15 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Coby CAM5005 and the Rollei S30), however the Midland XTC100 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.

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 10 Months

The Ricoh Theta M15 is two years newer than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, three years newer than the Coby CAM5005, three years newer than the Midland XTC100 and 10 months newer than the Rollei S30

Better Brand

Ricoh camcorders have an average rating of 86.6%, but Bushnell only has an average rating of 70.6%, Coby only has an average rating of 55.5%, Midland only has an average rating of 60.8% and Rollei only has an average rating of 59.6%.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh Theta M15

'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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Ricoh Theta M15 does not have a built-in display, whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Coby CAM5005, the Midland XTC100 and the Rollei S30 do. More ...

'Built-In Display' indicates whether the camcorder has a display built into the body of the device or not.

A built-in display is very helpful for checking the framing of the shot, or for quickly replaying your video to check everything recorded fine.

Does Not Support HDMI

The Ricoh Theta M15 does not support HDMI (As do the the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Midland XTC100), however the Coby CAM5005 and the Rollei S30 do. More ...
