Has a built-in focus motor
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.

Has a BSI sensor
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

36
Distinctly greater zoom range
Comment
50 x
vs
24 x
26 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

A little bit thinner
Comment
105.5 mm
vs
110.2 mm
4.70 mm thinner

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.

32
Notably longer maximum focal length
Comment
1200 mm
vs
600 mm
600 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
anonymous

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

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

Shorter minimum focal length
Comment
24 mm
vs
25 mm
1 mm shorter minimum focal length. A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.

29
Has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

Noticeably more focus points
Comment
23
vs
9
14 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
12 fps
vs
2.2 fps
5.45x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

vs
0.0005 s
10x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

Has a built-in HDR mode
Comment
Yes

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

Noticeably 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.

38
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.

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
37
A shade bigger screen size
Comment
3 "
vs
2.8 "
7.14% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
anonymous
35
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Comment
2.8
vs
3.4
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
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
Explicitly longer exposure time
Comment
60 s
vs
15 s
45 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
