Both the GoPros (Hero4 Silver) and pro cam (Canon Vixia HF-G20) record in 1080P HD quality. Both have a LCD screen so a user can see what they are recording. The GoPros do have some advantages:


- waterproof

- compact

- special photo modes - time lapse and burst


The lightweight, easy to use pro cam (Canon Vixia HF-G20) has the following advantages:

- optical zoom for crisp, clear close ups

- better sound recording

- external light

- high quality video in low light settings


Here is a video comparing our cameras:


GoPro sample with a drone. The scene you see at the very end of the first video (with the GoPro) is a good example of the low light capabilities of one camera versus the other. 




Pro camera sample:



The GoPros come with 32GB memory cards and can hold about 2 hours of video each. The pro cam holds 6 hours of video.
