Has an optical viewfinder
Comment
Yes
vs
No
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

Bigger screen size
Comment

Significantly faster flash X-sync
Comment
0.005 s
vs
0.00625 s
25% faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.

Distinctly more cross-type focus points
Comment
5.6
vs
3
2.60 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.

Has manual shutter speed
Comment
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.

Appreciably larger sensor
Comment
23.5 x 15.6 mm
vs
14.9 x 22.3 mm
10.33% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

Explicitly more focus points
Comment
15
vs
9
6 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

Appreciably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
Comment
7 fps
vs
3.7 fps
1.89x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
anonymous
81
Notably higher maximum light sensitivity
Comment
25600 ISO
vs
12800 ISO
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.

Has a stereo microphone
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
anonymous
50
Has a built-in HDR mode
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
anonymous
47
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

Vastly longer battery life
Comment
500 shots
vs
440 shots
60 shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

Clearly narrower
Comment
92 mm
vs
133.1 mm
41.10 mm narrower

Vastly more microphone(s)
Comment
2
vs
1
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Supports AVCHD format
Comment
Yes
vs
No
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
anonymous
38
Has sensor shift stabilization
Comment
Yes
vs
No
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
anonymous
37
Can create panoramas in-camera
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
anonymous
34
Has an electronic viewfinder
Comment
Yes
vs
No
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
anonymous
31
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
31
Amply more viewfinder coverage
Comment
100 %
vs
95 %
5 % more viewfinder coverage. With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

Wireless charging
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
