Explicitly more megapixels (photo)
48.41% more megapixels (photo)
A little larger sensor
14.9 x 22.3 mm
14.7 x 22.2 mm
1.82% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Lower noise at high ISO
5.03% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Noticeably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
23.33% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Has a flip-out screen
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
Better image quality
3 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
Considerably higher maximum light sensitivity
2x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Appreciably better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
720 x 29.97 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
A tad better color depth
0.91% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
Distinctly higher pixel density
1.91x higher pixel density
Explicitly higher resolution
4.52x higher resolution
Wider dynamic range
4.55% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Sizably higher resolution (screen)
1040 k dots
230 k dots
810 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
A tad shorter
0.20 mm shorter
Slightly bigger screen size
11.11% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Has an eyepiece viewfinder included
Olympus charges extra for the viewfinder
350$ vs 600$
