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 (as do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), but the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is only a 20x optical zoom camcorder (12x 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.

Lighter

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 235 camcorder, and so do the Canon Legria HF R606 and the Canon Legria HFR706. That's 645g lighter than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (880g) and 5g lighter than the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 (240g). More ...

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

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

0.19MP Bigger Total Megapixels

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a total megapixels of 3.28 (as do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is only a 3.09MP camcorder (0.19MP 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.

A Lot Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 4.5 maximum aperture value camcorder (as do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), whereas the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is only a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.7 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.

24% Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 50 camcorder, and so does the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 15fps faster than the Canon Legria HFR706 (35fps). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a built-in flash, and so does the Canon LEGRIA HF R86, but the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R606 and the Canon Legria HFR706 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, however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706 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 Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), whereas the Canon Legria HF R606 does 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.

Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Canon Legria HF R806 is a 3.25 battery life camcorder, and so does the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 0.09h longer than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (3.16h) and 0.32h longer than the Canon Legria HF R606 and the Canon Legria HFR706 (2.93h). 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 Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), however the Canon Legria HF R606 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 87, but the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 scored 82, the Canon Legria HF R606 scored 84, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 scored 84 and the Canon Legria HFR706 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.

More Popular

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

One More Award

The Canon Legria HF R806 has received 1 award, however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 has received no awards, the Canon Legria HF R606 has received no awards, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 has received no awards and the Canon Legria HFR706 has received no awards.

User Reviews Are a Bit Better

The average user review score of the Canon Legria HF R806 is 87% based on 58 reviews, but the average rating of the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is 20% (based on 2 reviews), the average rating of the Canon Legria HF R606 is 86% (based on 76 reviews) and the average rating of the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 is 68% (based on 5 reviews).

More Customers Recommend it

32.9% of 82 customers recommend the Canon Legria HF R806, however only 10% of 10 customers recommend the Canon LEGRIA HF R86.

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

Has Better Technical Features

On average reviewers thought the Canon Legria HF R806 has better technical features. More than 10 people thought that it had excellent features.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Legria HF R806

A Lot Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

The Canon Legria HF R806 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 32.5 (as do the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is a 10mm minimum focal length camcorder (22.5mm 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.

0.84MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon Legria HF R806 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 2.07 (as do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706), however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is a 2.91MP (movie mode) camcorder (0.84MP 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.

Not Waterproof

The Canon Legria HF R806 is not waterproof, however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 and the Canon Legria HFR706 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!

£46 More Expensive

The Canon Legria HF R806 is more expensive than the Canon Legria HF R606 by £30 and more expensive than the Canon Legria HFR706 by £46.

Over One Year Older

The Canon Legria HF R806 is older than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 by 13 months. The Canon Legria HF R806 is the same age as the Canon LEGRIA HF R86.

A Bit Lower Overall Review Score

The Canon Legria HF R806 has an average overall rating of 83%, but the Canon Legria HF R606 has an average overall rating of 86% (based on 76 reviews).

A Worse Size

The Canon Legria HF R806 reviewers thought the Canon Legria HF R806 was a worse size.

Worse Great Video Quality

Our analysis of the Canon Legria HF R806 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon Legria HF R806 was worse great video quality.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Legria HFR706

Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon Legria HFR706 is a 32 optical zoom camcorder, and so do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 12x bigger than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (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.

645g Lighter

The Canon Legria HFR706 has a weight of 235 (as do the Canon Legria HF R606 and the Canon Legria HF R806), but the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is an 880g camcorder (645g heavier) and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 is a 240g camcorder (5g heavier). More ...

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

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

6% Bigger Total Megapixels

The Canon Legria HFR706 is a 3.28 camcorder, and so do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 0.19MP bigger than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (3.09MP). 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.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Canon Legria HFR706 is a 4.5 maximum aperture value camcorder, and so do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 1.7 higher than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (2.8). 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.

Built-in Microphone

The Canon Legria HFR706 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86, whereas the Canon Legria HF R606 does 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.

Night Mode

The Canon Legria HFR706 has a night mode, and so do the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86, however the Canon Legria HF R606 does 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.

Cheaper by £16

The Canon Legria HFR706 costs £149.00, whereas the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is £779.00, the Canon Legria HF R606 is £164.99, the Canon Legria HF R806 is £194.99 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 is £200.00.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Legria HFR706

Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)

The Canon Legria HFR706 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 32.5, and so do the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 22.5mm longer than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (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.

A Lot Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon Legria HFR706 has a maximum frame rate of 35, however the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 are both 50fps camcorders (15fps faster). 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.

29% Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon Legria HFR706 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 2.07, and so do the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86. That's 0.84MP lower than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 (2.91MP). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon Legria HFR706 does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Canon LEGRIA HF G26), whereas the Canon Legria HF R606, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 do. 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.

Does Not Feature Wi-Fi

The Canon Legria HFR706 does not feature Wi-Fi (As does the the Canon Legria HF R606), whereas the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 do. 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.

0.32h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

The Canon Legria HFR706 is a 2.93 battery life camcorder, whereas the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, the Canon Legria HF R806 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 are all 3.25h battery life camcorders (0.32h longer) and the Canon Legria HF R606 is a 2.16h battery life camcorder (0.77h 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 Canon Legria HFR706 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Canon Legria HF R606 scored 84, the Canon Legria HF R806 scored 87 and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 scored 84.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon Legria HFR706 is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Canon LEGRIA HF G26 is stocked by 7 sellers, the Canon Legria HF R806 is stocked by 23 sellers and the Canon LEGRIA HF R86 is stocked by 21 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.
Older by Over One Year

The Canon Legria HFR706 is 22 months older than the Canon LEGRIA HF G26, nine months older than the Canon Legria HF R806 and nine months older than the Canon LEGRIA HF R86.

Less Popular

The Canon Legria HFR706 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.
