Distinctly longer battery life
Comment
1100 shots

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

67
Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.

×

66
Has a 24p cinema mode
Comment
Yes
vs
No
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

59
Explicitly faster maximum shutter speed
Comment
0.000125 s
vs
0.00025 s
2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

×

55
Is dustproof and water resistant
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Dustproof / water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1m.

×

54
Has a microphone in
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.

×

53
Somewhat higher resolution (screen)
Comment
1040 k dots
vs
1037 k dots
3 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

×

44
Weather sealed
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

×

41
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.

Clearly faster flash X-sync
Comment
0.004 s
vs
0.005 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.

×

36
A tad more viewfinder coverage
Comment
96 %
vs
95 %
1 % 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.
