22 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

50% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 32 optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N (1x) and 22x bigger than the Sony FDRAX33 (10x). 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 Legria HF R806 has an image stabilizer (as do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony FDRAX33), 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.

36% Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a maximum aperture number of 4.5. That's 2.5 higher than the DJI Osmo+ and 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.

20fps Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a maximum frame rate of 50 (as does the Sony FDRAX33), but the Zoom Q2N is only a 30fps camcorder (20fps 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.

0.35m Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01 (as does the Sony FDRAX33), however the Zoom Q2N is a 0.36m closest focusing distance camcorder (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.

Face Detection

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a face detection (as does the Sony FDRAX33), whereas the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Built-in Flash

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in flash (as do the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony FDRAX33), whereas the DJI Osmo+ 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.

30% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3 screen size camcorder, and so does the Sony FDRAX33. 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.

Remote Operation

The Canon Legria HF R806 supports remote operation, and so do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony FDRAX33, but the Zoom Q2N does 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 Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Sony FDRAX33 and the Zoom Q2N, however the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 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 Canon Legria HF R806 supports HDMI (as do the Sony FDRAX33 and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 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!

A Lot Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a maximum battery life of 3.25, however the DJI Osmo+ is only a 2.25h battery life camcorder (1h shorter), the Sony FDRAX33 is only a 0.25h battery life camcorder (3h shorter) and the Zoom Q2N is only a 3h battery life camcorder (0.25h shorter). 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.

Night Mode

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a night mode, and so do the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony FDRAX33, but the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

A Lot Heavier

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a weight of 235, whereas the DJI Osmo+ is a 268g camcorder (33g heavier), the GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder (109g lighter), the Sony FDRAX33 is a 700g camcorder (465g heavier) 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 Legria HF R806 is a 3.28 camcorder. That's 8.72MP smaller than the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 (12MP), 17.32MP smaller than the Sony FDRAX33 (20.6MP) 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 Legria HF R806 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony FDRAX33 (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.

Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Canon Legria HF R806 is 32.5 minimum focal length. That's 5.7mm longer than the Sony FDRAX33 (26.8mm). 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.

8.23MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Legria HF R806 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.07, whereas the Sony FDRAX33 is a 10.3MP camcorder (8.23MP 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 Legria HF R806 is only 2.07 (movie mode). That's 6.22MP lower than the Sony FDRAX33 (8.29MP). 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon Legria HF R806 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), whereas the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO8 support a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Zoom Q2N support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Not Waterproof

The Canon Legria HF R806 is not waterproof (As does the the Sony FDRAX33), but the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO8 and the Zoom Q2N 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 Canon Legria HF R806 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the GoPro HERO8 scored 88.

More Expensive by £148

The Canon Legria HF R806 is £70 more expensive than the DJI Osmo+, £148 more expensive than the GoPro HERO8 and £57 more expensive than the Zoom Q2N.

Older by Over Two Years

The Canon Legria HF R806 is three years older than the GoPro HERO8. The Canon Legria HF R806 is the same age as the Zoom Q2N.

Five Less Awards

The Canon Legria HF R806 has only received 1 award, but the DJI Osmo+ has received 6 awards.

14 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 (as are the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony FDRAX33), but the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Image Stabilizer

The GoPro HERO8 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony FDRAX33, but 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.

34% Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The GoPro HERO8 is a 256 maximum memory card size camcorder, and so does the DJI Osmo+. That's 128GB larger than the Zoom Q2N (128GB). 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, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony FDRAX33, however the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N 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 HERO8 supports remote operation (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony FDRAX33), whereas the Zoom Q2N does 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 HERO8 has a GPS, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+, the Sony FDRAX33 and the Zoom Q2N do not. More ...

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

Higher Still Image Resolution

The GoPro HERO8 supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, and so does the DJI Osmo+, which is 6 times higher still image resolution as the Canon Legria HF R806 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)) and 39 times higher still image resolution as the Sony FDRAX33 (640 x 480). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Zoom Q2N support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Wi-Fi

The GoPro HERO8 features Wi-Fi, and so do the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony FDRAX33, however the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Bluetooth

The GoPro HERO8 supports bluetooth (as does the DJI Osmo+), however the Canon Legria HF R806, the Sony FDRAX33 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Waterproof

The GoPro HERO8 is waterproof, and so is the DJI Osmo+, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the Sony FDRAX33 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 88, however the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 87, the DJI Osmo+ scored 86, the Sony FDRAX33 scored 84 and the Zoom Q2N scored 82.

£78 Cheaper

The GoPro HERO8 costs £148.02 less than the Canon Legria HF R806, costs £78.03 less than the DJI Osmo+, costs £465.02 less than the Sony FDRAX33 and costs £91.45 less than the Zoom Q2N.

Three Years Newer

The GoPro HERO8 was released three years later than the Canon Legria HF R806, released three years later than the DJI Osmo+, released five years later than the Sony FDRAX33 and released three years later than the Zoom Q2N

User Reviews Are a Lot Better

Based on 2 user reviews, the average review score of the GoPro HERO8 is 100%, however the average rating of the Canon Legria HF R806 is 87% (based on 58 reviews), the average rating of the DJI Osmo+ is 78% (based on 334 reviews), the average rating of the Sony FDRAX33 is 90% (based on 458 reviews) and the average rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87% (based on 71 reviews).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO8

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The GoPro HERO8 has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N), however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (31x bigger) and the Sony FDRAX33 is a 10x optical zoom camcorder (9x 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.

23% Heavier

The GoPro HERO8 is a 126 camcorder. That's 109g lighter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (235g), 142g lighter than the DJI Osmo+ (268g), 574g lighter than the Sony FDRAX33 (700g) and 36g 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.

A Lot Smaller Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO8 has a total megapixels of 12 (as does the DJI Osmo+), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N are both 3MP camcorders (9MP smaller) and the Sony FDRAX33 is a 20.6MP camcorder (8.6MP 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.

Less Retailers

Only 14 shops sells the GoPro HERO8, whereas 21 sellers sell the Canon Legria HF R806 and 17 sellers sell the DJI Osmo+. 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.
Fewer Awards

Whilst the GoPro HERO8 has received 1 award, the DJI Osmo+ has received 6 awards.

A Little Lower Expert Review Score

The GoPro HERO8's average expert rating is 90%, however the Sony FDRAX33's is 92% (based on 4 reviews).

Worse Brand

GoPro camcorders have an average rating of only 91.4%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 93.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HERO8 in the UK is £20.97 and in total we found 14 prices for it.
