Trusted Reviews Recommended

14 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic HCVX870EBK

16.62MP Bigger Total Megapixels

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a total megapixels of 18.91, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N are both only 3MP camcorders (15.91MP smaller), the GoPro HERO6 is only a 12MP camcorder (6.91MP smaller) and the Sony HDRPJ410 is only a 2.29MP camcorder (16.62MP 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the GoPro HERO6), but the Canon Legria HF R806, the Sony HDRPJ410 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410, but the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N do 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.

42% Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 7 camcorder. That's 4.71MP higher than the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410 (2.29MP). 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 Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is an 8.29 (movie mode) camcorder, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410 are both only 2.29MP (movie mode) camcorders (6MP lower). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a built-in flash, and so does the Canon Legria HF R806, however the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRPJ410 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a display diagonal of 3 (as does the Canon Legria HF R806), however the Sony HDRPJ410 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports remote operation (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410), whereas the GoPro HERO6 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.

7 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports a still image resolution of 4992 x 2808, which is 7 times higher still image resolution as the Canon Legria HF R806 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)). We do not know what type of still image resolution the GoPro HERO6 and 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.

HDMI

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports HDMI, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806, the Sony HDRPJ410 and the Zoom Q2N, however the GoPro HERO6 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!

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK features Wi-Fi, and so does the Sony HDRPJ410, however the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO6 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.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports Near Field Communication (NFC), and so does the Sony HDRPJ410, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N do not. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Night Mode

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a night mode (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410), whereas the GoPro HERO6 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 87, the GoPro HERO6 scored 88, the Sony HDRPJ410 scored 87 and the Zoom Q2N scored 87.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic HCVX870EBK

A Lot Smaller Optical Zoom

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has an optical zoom of 20, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 32x optical zoom camcorder (12x bigger), the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N are both 1x optical zoom camcorders (19x smaller) and the Sony HDRPJ410 is a 30x optical zoom camcorder (10x 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 353 camcorder. That's 118g heavier than the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410 (235g), 236g heavier than the GoPro HERO6 (117g) and 263g 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.

95% Smaller Digital Zoom

Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only 60 (digital). That's 1,080x smaller than the Canon Legria HF R806 (1,140x) and 290x smaller than the Sony HDRPJ410 (350x). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

Hugely Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only 1.8 maximum aperture value, but the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410 are both 4 maximum aperture value camcorders (2.2 higher) and the Zoom Q2N is a 2 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.2 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.

Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 64 maximum memory card size camcorder. That's 64GB smaller 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.

Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only 0.92 battery life. That's 2.08h shorter than the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N (3h) and 0.25h shorter than the Sony HDRPJ410 (1.17h). 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.

£263 More Expensive

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is more expensive than the Canon Legria HF R806 by £177, more expensive than the GoPro HERO6 by £112, more expensive than the Sony HDRPJ410 by £147 and more expensive than the Zoom Q2N by £263.

Less Retailers

Only 2 stores sells the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, whereas 23 retailers sell the Canon Legria HF R806, 6 retailers sell the GoPro HERO6, 5 shops sell the Sony HDRPJ410 and 6 retailers sell the Zoom Q2N. 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.
Eight Months Older

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is older than the Canon Legria HF R806 by eight months, older than the GoPro HERO6 by four months and older than the Zoom Q2N by eight months.

Less Popular

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Fewer Awards

9 Reasons For for Choosing the GoPro HERO6

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The GoPro HERO6 has a max video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Panasonic HCVX870EBK), but the Canon Legria HF R806, the Sony HDRPJ410 and the Zoom Q2N have a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. 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.

19% Heavier

The GoPro HERO6 is a 117 camcorder. That's 118g lighter than the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Sony HDRPJ410 (235g), 236g lighter than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (353g) and 27g heavier than the Zoom Q2N (90g). More ...

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

A Lot Smaller Total Megapixels

The GoPro HERO6 has a total megapixels of 12, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N are both 3MP camcorders (9MP smaller), the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 18.91MP camcorder (6.91MP bigger) and the Sony HDRPJ410 is a 2.29MP camcorder (9.71MP 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).

14 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRPJ410

Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDRPJ410 has an image stabilizer (as do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK), however the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

70% Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony HDRPJ410 is 10 minimum focal length. That's 22.5mm shorter than the Canon Legria HF R806 (32.5mm). 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.

0.35m Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Sony HDRPJ410 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01 (as does the Canon Legria HF R806), 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 Sony HDRPJ410 has a face detection (as does the Canon Legria HF R806), whereas the GoPro HERO6, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK 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.

Smile Detection

The Sony HDRPJ410 features smile detection, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO6, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Zoom Q2N do not feature this benefit. More ...

Smile detection is a system to automatically detect when people in the camcorder's shot are smiling, and pull focus towards them to make sure they're always in full focus.

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRPJ410 supports remote operation, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, but the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N do 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 Sony HDRPJ410 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N, however the GoPro HERO6 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK 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 Sony HDRPJ410 supports HDMI (as do the Canon Legria HF R806, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Zoom Q2N), whereas the GoPro HERO6 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!

Wi-Fi

The Sony HDRPJ410 features Wi-Fi (as does the Panasonic HCVX870EBK), whereas the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Sony HDRPJ410 supports Near Field Communication (NFC) (as does the Panasonic HCVX870EBK), however the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N do not support this feature. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Built-in Projector

The Sony HDRPJ410 has a built-in projector, but the Canon Legria HF R806, the GoPro HERO6, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Zoom Q2N do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-in Projector' denotes whether the camcorder has an internal projector or not.

A built-in projector allows you to easily show off the videos you've recorded, without having to hook the device up to a monitor or TV first.

Night Mode

The Sony HDRPJ410 has a night mode, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, but the GoPro HERO6 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.

More Reliable

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony HDRPJ410 was more reliable. More than 10 people thought that the Sony HDR-PJ410 was well made.

Better Well Executed Technical Features

The Sony HDRPJ410 reviewers thought the Sony HDRPJ410 was better well executed technical features. Over 30 people thought that the Sony HDR-PJ410 had very good features.

27 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRPJ410

7% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRPJ410 is a 30 optical zoom camcorder. That's 2x smaller than the Canon Legria HF R806 (32x), 29x bigger than the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N (1x) and 10x bigger than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (20x). 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 Sony HDRPJ410 has a weight of 235 (as does the Canon Legria HF R806), whereas the GoPro HERO6 is a 117g camcorder (118g lighter), the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 353g camcorder (118g 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 Sony HDRPJ410 is a 2.29 camcorder. That's 0.71MP smaller than the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N (3MP), 9.71MP smaller than the GoPro HERO6 (12MP) and 16.62MP smaller than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (18.91MP). 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 Sony HDRPJ410 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO6 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (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.

790x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony HDRPJ410 has a digital zoom of 350, however the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 1,140x (digital) camcorder (790x bigger) and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 60x (digital) camcorder (290x smaller). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

869mm Shorter Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

Sony HDRPJ410 is only 984 maximum focal length, but the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 1,853mm maximum focal length camcorder (869mm longer). 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 greater focal lengths mean that the camcorder has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camcorder is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

12% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRPJ410 has a maximum aperture number of 4. That's 0.5 lower than the Canon Legria HF R806 (4.5), 2.2 higher than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (1.8) and 2 higher than 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.

4.71MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRPJ410 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.29, whereas the Canon Legria HF R806 is a 2.07MP camcorder (0.22MP lower) and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 7MP camcorder (4.71MP 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)

Sony HDRPJ410 is only 2.29 (movie mode). That's 0.22MP higher than the Canon Legria HF R806 (2.07MP) and 6MP lower than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (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.

20 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 32 optical zoom camcorder. That's 31x bigger than the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N (1x), 12x bigger than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (20x) and 2x bigger than the Sony HDRPJ410 (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.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon Legria HF R806 has an image stabilizer (as do the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Sony HDRPJ410), but the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N 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.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

Canon Legria HF R806 is 4.5 maximum aperture value. That's 2.7 higher than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (1.8), 0.5 higher than the Sony HDRPJ410 (4) and 2.5 higher than 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.

A Lot Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a maximum frame rate of 50, whereas 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.

Hugely Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a closest focusing distance of 0.01 (as does the Sony HDRPJ410), but 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 HDRPJ410), however the GoPro HERO6, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK 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 does the Panasonic HCVX870EBK), however the GoPro HERO6, the Sony HDRPJ410 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a display diagonal of 3, and so does the Panasonic HCVX870EBK. That's 0.3" larger than the Sony HDRPJ410 (2.7") and 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Sony HDRPJ410, whereas the GoPro HERO6 and the Zoom Q2N do 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 HDRPJ410 and the Zoom Q2N, but the GoPro HERO6 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Sony HDRPJ410 and the Zoom Q2N), however the GoPro HERO6 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!

2.33h Longer Maximum Battery Life

Canon Legria HF R806 is 3.25 battery life, but the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only a 0.92h battery life camcorder (2.33h shorter), the Sony HDRPJ410 is only a 1.17h battery life camcorder (2.08h 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 Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Sony HDRPJ410, whereas the GoPro HERO6 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.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

More Popular

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

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

145g Heavier

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a weight of 235 (as does the Sony HDRPJ410), however the GoPro HERO6 is a 117g camcorder (118g lighter), the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 353g camcorder (118g 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.

83% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.28 camcorder. That's 8.72MP smaller than the GoPro HERO6 (12MP), 15.63MP smaller than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (18.91MP), 0.99MP bigger than the Sony HDRPJ410 (2.29MP) 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony HDRPJ410 and the Zoom Q2N, which is 4 times lower maximum video resolution as the GoPro HERO6 and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (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)

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 32.5 minimum focal length camcorder. That's 22.5mm longer than the Sony HDRPJ410 (10mm). 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.

Vastly Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon Legria HF R806 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.07, however the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 7MP camcorder (4.93MP higher) and the Sony HDRPJ410 is a 2.29MP camcorder (0.22MP 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.

76% Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 2.07 (movie mode) camcorder. That's 6.22MP lower than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (8.29MP) and 0.22MP lower than the Sony HDRPJ410 (2.29MP). 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.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon Legria HF R806 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), however the Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports a still image resolution of 4992 x 2808. We do not know what type of still image resolution the GoPro HERO6 and 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 HDRPJ410), whereas the GoPro HERO6, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK 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!
