11 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 is the DJI Osmo+), but the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405 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 GoPro HERO8 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony HDRCX405, but 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.

Built-in Flash

The GoPro HERO8 has a built-in flash, and so does the Canon Legria HF R806, however the DJI Osmo+, 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 HERO8 supports remote operation (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+ and the Sony HDRCX405), whereas 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.

GPS

The GoPro HERO8 has a GPS, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+, 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.

Wi-Fi

The GoPro HERO8 features Wi-Fi, and so do the DJI Osmo+ and the Ricoh Theta V, however the Canon Legria HF R806 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.

Bluetooth

The GoPro HERO8 supports bluetooth (as do the DJI Osmo+ and the Ricoh Theta V), however the Canon Legria HF R806 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.

Waterproof

The GoPro HERO8 is waterproof, and so is the DJI Osmo+, but 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!

Two 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 two years later than the Ricoh Theta V and released five years later than the Sony HDRCX405

Expert Reviews Are a Little Better

Based on 3 expert reviews, the average review score of the GoPro HERO8 is 90%, however the average rating of the Canon Legria HF R806 is 80% (based on 1 review), the average rating of the DJI Osmo+ is 86% (based on 104 reviews) and the average rating of the Ricoh Theta V is 75% (based on 32 reviews).

User Reviews Are Appreciably 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 Ricoh Theta V is 90% (based on 47 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony HDRCX405 is 88% (based on 723 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the GoPro HERO8

Vastly Smaller Optical Zoom

The GoPro HERO8 has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the DJI Osmo+ and the Ricoh Theta V), however 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.

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), 1g heavier than the Ricoh Theta V (125g) and 64g 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.

2MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO8 has a total megapixels of 12 (as does the DJI Osmo+), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.28MP camcorder (8.72MP smaller), the Ricoh Theta V is a 14MP camcorder (2MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX405 is a 9.2MP camcorder (2.8MP 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The GoPro HERO8 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, however the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 90.

£175 More Expensive

The GoPro HERO8 is more expensive than the Canon Legria HF R806 by £80, more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ by £175 and more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 by £120.

Less Retailers

Only 18 shops sells the GoPro HERO8, whereas 23 stores sell the Canon Legria HF R806 and 22 retailers sell the DJI Osmo+. 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.
Fewer Awards

Whilst the GoPro HERO8 has received 1 award, the DJI Osmo+ has received 6 awards and the Ricoh Theta V has received 2 awards.

Worse Brand

GoPro camcorders have an average rating of only 92.2%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 94.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HERO8 in the UK is £259.99 and in total we found 18 prices for it.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The DJI Osmo+ has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so is the GoPro HERO8, which is 4 times higher maximum video resolution as the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405 (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 DJI Osmo+ has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX405), whereas 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.

Remote Operation

The DJI Osmo+ supports remote operation, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO8 and the Sony HDRCX405, however the Ricoh Theta V 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.

Wi-Fi

The DJI Osmo+ features Wi-Fi (as do the GoPro HERO8 and the Ricoh Theta V), but the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405 do not feature this benefit. 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, and so do the GoPro HERO8 and the Ricoh Theta V, but the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405 do not. 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, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRCX405, however the GoPro HERO8 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.

25 Reasons Against for Choosing the DJI Osmo+

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The DJI Osmo+ is a 1 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the GoPro HERO8 and the Ricoh Theta V. That's 31x smaller than the Canon Legria HF R806 (32x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX405 (30x). 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.

A Lot Heavier

The DJI Osmo+ has a weight of 268, but the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 235g camcorder (33g lighter), the GoPro HERO8 is a 126g camcorder (142g lighter), the Ricoh Theta V is a 125g camcorder (143g lighter) and the Sony HDRCX405 is a 190g camcorder (78g 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.

15% Smaller Total Megapixels

The DJI Osmo+ is a 12 camcorder, and so does the GoPro HERO8. That's 8.72MP bigger than the Canon Legria HF R806 (3.28MP), 2MP smaller than the Ricoh Theta V (14MP) and 2.8MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX405 (9.2MP). 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.

38% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The DJI Osmo+ is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder. That's 1.7 lower than the Canon Legria HF R806 (4.5), 0.8 higher than the Ricoh Theta V (2) and 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX405 (1.8). 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.

Only 4000 X 3000 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.

A Lot Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The DJI Osmo+ is a 2.25 battery life camcorder, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.25h battery life camcorder (1h longer), the Ricoh Theta V is a 1.33h battery life camcorder (0.92h shorter) and the Sony HDRCX405 is a 0.92h battery life camcorder (1.33h 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The DJI Osmo+ has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 90.

Not As Many Stockists

The DJI Osmo+ is only stocked by 22 retailers, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is stocked by 23 stores. More ...
