Distinctly more megapixels (photo)
16.13% more megapixels (photo)
A tad lower noise at high ISO
2.71% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Sizably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
47.06% 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.
Distinctly 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.
Significantly better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
1080 x 20 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
Clearly longer battery life
40 shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
A bit higher pixel density
6.37% higher pixel density
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Substantially higher resolution
13.18% higher resolution
Noticeably higher resolution (screen)
1040 k dots
920 k dots
120 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Has a touch screen
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
Vastly more microphone(s)
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Measurably more cross-type focus points
3.40 more cross-type focus points. Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
Newer DIGIC version
Newer DIGIC version. Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.
