2008 Camcorder vs. 2016 Gopro how do they compare?

I bought a fairly good HDD camcorder back in 2008. Sony HDR-Sr12. It was between $1500-2000 at the time.

How does it hold up to the new Gopro hero 5? I know the sound wont be as good on the go pro but I'm thinking technology may make the video look as good or even better.

I'm currently using a Canon 60D for photo/video btw but I'm found my old camcorder buried in my office and it got me wondering if this 9 year old camera compares to the miniature action cams of today.

About the HRD-SR12:

Record 1920 x 1080 Full HD video
10.2-megapixel still image capture
Face Detection technology for video and still images
ClearVid CMOS sensor with Exmor technology
