23 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO7

Image Stabilizer

The GoPro HERO7 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube and the Sony HDRCX405, whereas the Ricoh Theta V 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.

Face Detection

The GoPro HERO7 has a face detection, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405, but the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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, and so does the Sony HDRCX405, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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, and so does the Canon Legria HF R806, but the Polaroid Cube, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405 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 (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405), however the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405 do not. More ...

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

HDMI

The GoPro HERO7 supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405, but the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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 does the Ricoh Theta V, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube and the Sony HDRCX405 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.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The GoPro HERO7 supports Near Field Communication (NFC), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405 do not. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Bluetooth

The GoPro HERO7 supports bluetooth (as does the Ricoh Theta V), but the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube and the Sony HDRCX405 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 (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405), however the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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 is the Polaroid Cube, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony HDRCX405 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 HERO7 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Polaroid Cube scored 86, the Ricoh Theta V scored 86 and the Sony HDRCX405 scored 85.

More Popular

The GoPro HERO7 is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

10 More Awards

The GoPro HERO7 has received 10 awards, however the Canon Legria HF R806 has received 1 award, the Polaroid Cube has received 1 award, the Ricoh Theta V has received 2 awards and the Sony HDRCX405 has received no awards.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO7

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The GoPro HERO7 has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V), but the Canon Legria HF R806 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.

The GoPro HERO7 is a 92 camcorder. That's 143g lighter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (235g), 33g heavier than the Polaroid Cube (59g), 33g lighter than the Ricoh Theta V (125g) and 98g 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.

A Lot Smaller Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO7 has a total megapixels of 10, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.28MP camcorder (6.72MP smaller), the Polaroid Cube is an 8MP camcorder (2MP smaller), the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (4MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX405 is a 9.2MP camcorder (0.8MP 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 GoPro HERO7 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405), whereas the Ricoh Theta V has a max video resolution of 3840 x 1920 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.

£10 More Expensive

The GoPro HERO7 is more expensive than the Polaroid Cube by £10.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 18 stores sells the GoPro HERO7, however 23 shops sell the Canon Legria HF R806. 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.

13 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRCX405

Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDRCX405 has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Polaroid Cube), however the Ricoh Theta V 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.

Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony HDRCX405 is 10 minimum focal length. That's 22.5mm shorter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (32.5mm). More ...

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camcorder can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

A Lot Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Sony HDRCX405 has a maximum frame rate of 60, but the Canon Legria HF R806 is only a 50fps camcorder (10fps slower) and the Ricoh Theta V 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.

9% Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Sony HDRCX405 is 2.29 (movie mode). That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Legria HF R806 (2.07MP). 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.

Face Detection

The Sony HDRCX405 has a face detection (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7), whereas the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V do not have this feature. 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 Sony HDRCX405 features smile detection (as does the GoPro HERO7), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V do not feature this benefit. 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.

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRCX405 supports remote operation, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7, but the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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 Sony HDRCX405 has a built-in microphone, and so does the Canon Legria HF R806, however the GoPro HERO7, the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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.

HDMI

The Sony HDRCX405 supports HDMI (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7), whereas the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V 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!

Night Mode

The Sony HDRCX405 has a night mode, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7, but the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V do not. 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.

More Customers Recommend it

64.6% of 703 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX405, but only 32.9% of 82 customers recommend the Canon Legria HF R806, only 28.2% of 390 customers recommend the GoPro HERO7, only 2.5% of 443 customers recommend the Polaroid Cube and only 16.2% of 130 customers recommend the Ricoh Theta V.

Has a Better Battery That Lasted a Long Time

On average reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX405 has a better battery that lasted a long time. Over 10 people thought that it had a brilliant battery life and five people thought that it was also quick to charge.

Has a Better Acceptable Noise Level

On average reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX405 has a better acceptable noise level. More than 10 people thought that it was very quiet and four people thought that it also wasn't noisy.

29 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX405

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 30 optical zoom camcorder. That's 2x smaller than the Canon Legria HF R806 (32x) and 29x bigger than the GoPro HERO7, the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V (1x). 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.

131g Heavier

The Sony HDRCX405 has a weight of 190, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 235g camcorder (45g heavier), the GoPro HERO7 is a 92g camcorder (98g lighter), the Polaroid Cube is a 59g camcorder (131g lighter) and the Ricoh Theta V is a 125g camcorder (65g 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.

35% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 9.2 camcorder. That's 5.92MP bigger than the Canon Legria HF R806 (3.28MP), 0.8MP smaller than the GoPro HERO7 (10MP), 1.2MP bigger than the Polaroid Cube (8MP) and 4.8MP smaller than the Ricoh Theta V (14MP). 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 Sony HDRCX405 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the Ricoh Theta V (3840 x 1920 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.

Vastly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony HDRCX405 has a digital zoom of 350, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 1,140x (digital) camcorder (790x bigger). 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.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX405 has a maximum aperture number of 1.8. That's 2.7 lower than the Canon Legria HF R806 (4.5) and 0.2 lower than the Ricoh Theta V (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.

Significantly Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRCX405 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.29, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 2.07MP camcorder (0.22MP lower) and the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (11.71MP 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Sony HDRCX405 does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Ricoh Theta V), however the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Polaroid Cube 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.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 2.7 screen size camcorder. That's 0.3" smaller than the Canon Legria HF R806 (3"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

2.33h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Sony HDRCX405 has a maximum battery life of 0.92, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.25h battery life camcorder (2.33h longer) and the Ricoh Theta V is a 1.33h battery life camcorder (0.41h longer). 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.

Not Waterproof

The Sony HDRCX405 is not waterproof (As does the the Canon Legria HF R806), but the GoPro HERO7, the Polaroid Cube and the Ricoh Theta V are. 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!

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRCX405 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 87, the GoPro HERO7 scored 87, the Polaroid Cube scored 86 and the Ricoh Theta V scored 86.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony HDRCX405 is only stocked by 10 retailers, but the Canon Legria HF R806 is stocked by 23 shops and the GoPro HERO7 is stocked by 18 shops. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
