19 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 Zoom Q2N are all only 1x optical zoom camcorders (31x smaller) and the Sony HDR-CX240 is only a 27x optical zoom camcorder (5x 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 HDR-CX240, however 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.

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 Zoom Q2N 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. That's 20fps faster than the Zoom Q2N (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.

98% Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 0.01 closest focusing distance camcorder, and so does the GoPro HERO7. That's 0.35m smaller than the Zoom Q2N (0.36m). 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, and so do the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony HDR-CX240, whereas the DJI Osmo+ and the Zoom Q2N 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 does the GoPro HERO7, whereas the DJI Osmo+, the Sony HDR-CX240 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.

A Lot Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3 screen size camcorder, whereas the Sony HDR-CX240 is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.3" smaller) and the Zoom Q2N is only a 1.77" screen size camcorder (1.23" 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.

Remote Operation

The Canon Legria HF R806 supports remote operation (as do the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO7), but the Sony HDR-CX240 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in microphone (as do the Sony HDR-CX240 and the Zoom Q2N), however the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO7 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, the Sony HDR-CX240 and the Zoom Q2N, whereas the DJI Osmo+ does 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!

24% 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) and 0.25h longer than the Zoom Q2N (3h). 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+ and the GoPro HERO7), but the Sony HDR-CX240 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon Legria HF R806 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the Sony HDR-CX240 scored 82.

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 69.2%, GoPro only has an average rating of 90.4%, Sony only has an average rating of 92.9% and Zoom only has an average rating of 79.2%.

Has a Better Price

On average reviewers thought the Canon Legria HF R806 has a better price.

Better in Terms of Size

Comparing the product reviews on average people 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.

16 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), 45g heavier than the Sony HDR-CX240 (190g) and 145g 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.

8.72MP 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 Sony HDR-CX240 is a 9.2MP camcorder (5.92MP bigger) and the Zoom Q2N is a 3MP camcorder (0.28MP 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.

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 are the GoPro HERO7, the Sony HDR-CX240 and the Zoom Q2N), however the DJI Osmo+ has a max video resolution of 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.

78% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 2.07 camcorder. That's 7.13MP lower than the Sony HDR-CX240 (9.2MP). 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 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 4 times lower still image resolution as the Sony HDR-CX240 (4032 x 2272). 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, but the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7, the Sony HDR-CX240 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!

£145 More Expensive

The Canon Legria HF R806 is more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ by £97, more expensive than the GoPro HERO7 by £145, more expensive than the Sony HDR-CX240 by £15 and more expensive than the Zoom Q2N by £86.

Three Months Older

The Canon Legria HF R806 is older than the GoPro HERO7 by three months. The Canon Legria HF R806 is the same age as the Zoom Q2N.

Less Popular

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Fewer Awards

The average expert rating of the Canon Legria HF R806 is 80%, whereas the average expert rating of the DJI Osmo+ is 86% (based on 104 reviews) and the GoPro HERO7 is 88% (based on 99 reviews).

A Little Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Canon Legria HF R806 is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Sony HDR-CX240 is 89% (based on 359 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 32.9% of 82 customers recommend the Canon Legria HF R806, but 62.3% of 448 customers recommend the Sony HDR-CX240.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

Lighter

The Zoom Q2N is a 90 camcorder. That's 145g lighter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (235g), 178g lighter than the DJI Osmo+ (268g), 2g lighter than the GoPro HERO7 (92g) and 100g lighter than the Sony HDR-CX240 (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.

Built-in Microphone

The Zoom Q2N has a built-in microphone (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDR-CX240), however the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO7 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 Zoom Q2N supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony HDR-CX240, whereas the DJI Osmo+ does 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!

Better Kagoo Score

The Zoom Q2N has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the Sony HDR-CX240 scored 82.

Has a Better Acceptable Noise Level

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Zoom Q2N has a better acceptable noise level. Over 20 people thought that it was quiet.

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zoom Q2N

Significantly Smaller Optical Zoom

The Zoom Q2N has an optical zoom of 1 (as do the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO7), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (31x bigger) and the Sony HDR-CX240 is a 27x optical zoom camcorder (26x 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.

9MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The Zoom Q2N has a total megapixels of 3, but the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.28MP camcorder (0.28MP bigger), the DJI Osmo+ is a 12MP camcorder (9MP bigger), the GoPro HERO7 is a 10MP camcorder (7MP bigger) and the Sony HDR-CX240 is a 9.2MP camcorder (6.2MP 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 Zoom Q2N has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony HDR-CX240), however the DJI Osmo+ has a max video resolution of 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.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Zoom Q2N does not have an image stabilizer, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+, the GoPro HERO7 and the Sony HDR-CX240 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Zoom Q2N has a maximum aperture number of 2, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 4.5 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.5 higher) and the DJI Osmo+ is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.8 higher). 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.

40% Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Zoom Q2N is a 30 camcorder. That's 20fps slower than the Canon Legria HF R806 (50fps). 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.

Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Zoom Q2N is a 128 maximum memory card size camcorder. That's 128GB smaller than the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO7 (256GB). 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.

50% Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Zoom Q2N is a 0.36 closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.35m bigger than the Canon Legria HF R806 and the GoPro HERO7 (0.01m). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Zoom Q2N does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Sony HDR-CX240), however the Canon Legria HF R806, the DJI Osmo+ and the GoPro HERO7 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 Zoom Q2N is a 1.77 screen size camcorder, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3" screen size camcorder (1.23" larger) and the Sony HDR-CX240 is a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.93" 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.

Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Zoom Q2N has a maximum battery life of 3. That's 0.25h shorter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (3.25h) and 0.75h longer than the DJI Osmo+ (2.25h). 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.

£59 More Expensive

The Zoom Q2N is more expensive than the DJI Osmo+ by £11 and more expensive than the GoPro HERO7 by £59.

Fewer Sellers

Only 6 stores sells the Zoom Q2N, but 23 stores sell the Canon Legria HF R806, 20 retailers sell the DJI Osmo+ and 18 retailers sell the GoPro HERO7. More ...

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

The Zoom Q2N is older than the GoPro HERO7 by three months. The Zoom Q2N is the same age as the Canon Legria HF R806.

Marginally Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Sony HDR-CX240 is 89% (based on 359 reviews).

Marginally Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Zoom Q2N is 87%, whereas the average overall rating of the GoPro HERO7 is 90% (based on 316 reviews) and the Sony HDR-CX240 is 89% (based on 360 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 7.9% of 151 customers recommend the Zoom Q2N, but 32.9% of 82 customers recommend the Canon Legria HF R806, 10.4% of 461 customers recommend the DJI Osmo+, 28.1% of 392 customers recommend the GoPro HERO7 and 62.3% of 448 customers recommend the Sony HDR-CX240.

Worse Brand

Zoom camcorders have an average rating of only 79.2%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%, GoPro has an average rating of 90.4% and Sony has an average rating of 92.9%.
