17 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

A Lot Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Legria HF R806 has an optical zoom of 32, whereas the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7 and the Ricoh Theta V are all only 1x optical zoom camcorders (31x smaller) and the Sony FDRAX33 is only a 10x optical zoom camcorder (22x smaller). 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, and so do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33, however 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.

A Lot Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a maximum aperture number of 4.5, however the DJI Osmo+ and the Ricoh Theta V are both only 2 maximum aperture value camcorders (2.5 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.

29% Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 50 camcorder, and so does the Sony FDRAX33. That's 20fps faster than the Ricoh Theta V (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.

Face Detection

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a face detection, and so do the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33, whereas the DJI Osmo+ 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.

Built-in Flash

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in flash, and so do the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33, whereas the DJI Osmo+ and the Ricoh Theta V 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 Canon Legria HF R806 supports remote operation (as do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33), but the Ricoh Theta V 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in microphone (as does the Sony FDRAX33), however the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7 and the Ricoh Theta V 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 Canon Legria HF R806 supports HDMI, and so do the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33, whereas the DJI Osmo+ 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!

Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a maximum battery life of 3.25. That's 1h longer than the DJI Osmo+ (2.25h), 1.92h longer than the Ricoh Theta V (1.33h) and 3h longer than the Sony FDRAX33 (0.25h). 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 (as do the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33), but the Ricoh Theta V does 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon Legria HF R806 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the DJI Osmo+ scored 87, the GoPro HERO7 scored 87, the Ricoh Theta V scored 86 and the Sony FDRAX33 scored 87.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Better Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of 95%, but DJI only has an average rating of 69.4%, GoPro only has an average rating of 89.5%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 83.4% and Sony only has an average rating of 93.8%.

More Reasonably Priced

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon Legria HF R806 was more reasonably priced.

Better in Terms of Size

Our analysis of the Canon Legria HF R806 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon Legria HF R806 was better in terms of size. Several people thought that it was very lightweight and was compact.

Easier to Use

Our analysis of the Canon Legria HF R806 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon Legria HF R806 was easier to use. Over 40 people thought that it was very easy to use and two people thought that it was also easy to setup.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

Heavier

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 235 camcorder. That's 33g lighter than the DJI Osmo+ (268g), 143g heavier than the GoPro HERO7 (92g), 110g heavier than the Ricoh Theta V (125g) and 465g lighter than the Sony FDRAX33 (700g). More ...

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

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

17.32MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a total megapixels of 3.28, but the DJI Osmo+ is a 12MP camcorder (8.72MP bigger), the GoPro HERO7 is a 10MP camcorder (6.72MP bigger), the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (10.72MP bigger) and the Sony FDRAX33 is a 20.6MP camcorder (17.32MP 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.

4 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the GoPro HERO7), however the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony FDRAX33 have a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels and 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.

Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Canon Legria HF R806 is 32.5 minimum focal length, but the Sony FDRAX33 is a 26.8mm minimum focal length camcorder (5.7mm shorter). 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.

86% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 2.07 camcorder. That's 11.93MP lower than the Ricoh Theta V (14MP) and 8.23MP lower than the Sony FDRAX33 (10.3MP). 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.

6.22MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Canon Legria HF R806 is only 2.07 (movie mode), but the Sony FDRAX33 is an 8.29MP (movie mode) camcorder (6.22MP higher). 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), which is 6 times lower still image resolution as the DJI Osmo+ (4000 x 3000) and 7 times lower still image resolution as the Ricoh Theta V (5376 x 2688). 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 HERO7 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!

£149 More Expensive

The Canon Legria HF R806 is more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ by £101 and more expensive than the GoPro HERO7 by £149.

Eight Months Older

The Canon Legria HF R806 is older than the GoPro HERO7 by three months and older than the Ricoh Theta V by eight months.

Fewer Awards

Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

A Bit Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Canon Legria HF R806 is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Ricoh Theta V is 90% (based on 47 reviews) and the Sony FDRAX33 is 90% (based on 462 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 33.3% of 81 customers recommend the Canon Legria HF R806, but 80% of 470 customers recommend the Sony FDRAX33.

Worse Nice Technical Features

9 Reasons For for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The DJI Osmo+ has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Sony FDRAX33), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7 have a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the Ricoh Theta V only 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.

Image Stabilizer

The DJI Osmo+ has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33, 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.

Remote Operation

The DJI Osmo+ supports remote operation (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33), however the Ricoh Theta V 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.

Wi-Fi

The DJI Osmo+ features Wi-Fi, and so do the GoPro HERO7, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony FDRAX33, but the Canon Legria HF R806 does 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 DJI Osmo+ supports bluetooth (as do the GoPro HERO7 and the Ricoh Theta V), but the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony FDRAX33 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 DJI Osmo+ has a night mode (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony FDRAX33), however the Ricoh Theta V does 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 DJI Osmo+ is waterproof, and so is the GoPro HERO7, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the Ricoh Theta V and the Sony FDRAX33 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!

Has a Better Long Battery Life

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the DJI Osmo+ has a better long battery life. Several people thought that it had a bad battery life and wasn't quick to charge.

27 Reasons Against for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

31x Smaller Optical Zoom

The DJI Osmo+ has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the GoPro HERO7 and the Ricoh Theta V), but 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.

40% Heavier

The DJI Osmo+ is a 268 camcorder. That's 33g heavier than the Canon Legria HF R806 (235g), 176g heavier than the GoPro HERO7 (92g), 143g heavier than the Ricoh Theta V (125g) and 432g lighter than the Sony FDRAX33 (700g). 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 DJI Osmo+ has a total megapixels of 12, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.28MP camcorder (8.72MP smaller), the GoPro HERO7 is a 10MP camcorder (2MP smaller), the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (2MP bigger) 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.

1.7 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The DJI Osmo+ is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 4.5 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.7 higher) and the Ricoh Theta V is a 2 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.8 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The DJI Osmo+ supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, but the Ricoh Theta V supports a still image resolution of 5376 x 2688. 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.

31% Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The DJI Osmo+ is a 2.25 battery life camcorder. That's 1h shorter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (3.25h), 0.92h longer than the Ricoh Theta V (1.33h) and 2h longer than the Sony FDRAX33 (0.25h). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The DJI Osmo+ has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 88.

£48 More Expensive

The DJI Osmo+ is more expensive than the GoPro HERO7 by £48.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 20 sellers sells the DJI Osmo+, however 23 retailers 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.
