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

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

HDMI

'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!

Waterproof

The KitVision Escape HD5 is waterproof, and so are the ACTIVEON CCA10W and the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder, however the Polaroid ID1880 and the Sony MHSPM5 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 KitVision Escape HD5 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the ACTIVEON CCA10W scored 75, the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder scored 82, the Polaroid ID1880 scored 79 and the Sony MHSPM5 scored 80.

Overall Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 76 reviews, the average overall review score of the KitVision Escape HD5 is 93%, whereas the average rating of the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder is 82% (based on 4 reviews) and the average rating of the Polaroid ID1880 is 52% (based on 13 reviews).

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the KitVision Escape HD5

6MP Smaller Total Megapixels

The KitVision Escape HD5 has a total megapixels of 12MP, but the ACTIVEON CCA10W is a 4MP camcorder (8MP smaller), the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder and the Sony MHSPM5 are both 5MP camcorders (7MP smaller) and the Polaroid ID1880 is an 18MP camcorder (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.

6 Times Lower Maximum Video Resolution

The KitVision Escape HD5 has a max video resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels pixels, however the ACTIVEON CCA10W has a max video resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels, the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder has a max video resolution of 2560 x 1960 pixels and the Polaroid ID1880 and the Sony MHSPM5 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.

Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the KitVision Escape HD5 is 95%, whereas the average user rating of the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder is 100% (based on 2 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 8% of 87 customers recommend the KitVision Escape HD5, but 50% of 4 customers recommend the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder.

Worse Brand

KitVision camcorders have an average rating of only 75.8%, but Sony has an average rating of 94.3%.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony MHSPM5

Image Stabilizer

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid ID1880

44% Bigger Total Megapixels

The Polaroid ID1880 is an 18MP camcorder. That's 14MP bigger than the ACTIVEON CCA10W (4MP), 13MP bigger than the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder and the Sony MHSPM5 (5MP) and 6MP bigger than the KitVision Escape HD5 (12MP). 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.

Image Stabilizer

The Polaroid ID1880 has an image stabilizer (as do the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder and the Sony MHSPM5), but the ACTIVEON CCA10W and the KitVision Escape HD5 do 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.

Full HD

The Polaroid ID1880 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the ACTIVEON CCA10W, the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder and the Sony MHSPM5), but the KitVision Escape HD5 is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid ID1880 has a built-in flash, however the ACTIVEON CCA10W, the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder, the KitVision Escape HD5 and the Sony MHSPM5 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.

11% Larger Display Diagonal

The Polaroid ID1880 has a display diagonal of 2.7". That's 0.3" larger than the Sony MHSPM5 (2.4"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

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

HDMI

The Polaroid ID1880 supports HDMI (as do the ACTIVEON CCA10W, the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder and the KitVision Escape HD5), however the Sony MHSPM5 does 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!

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid ID1880

32g Heavier

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Polaroid ID1880 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Sony MHSPM5, which is half as high maximum video resolution as the ACTIVEON CCA10W (2560 x 1920 pixels) and half as high maximum video resolution as the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder (2560 x 1960 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.

1.5h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Polaroid ID1880 is only 1h battery life, but the ACTIVEON CCA10W and the Kaiser Baas X80 Action Camcorder are both 2.5h battery life camcorders (1.5h longer) and the Sony MHSPM5 is a 1.58h battery life camcorder (0.58h longer). More ...
