Supports AVCHD format
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.
Reasonably higher pixel density
29.41% higher pixel density
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Appreciably wider aperture
42.86% wider aperture. Aperture sizes are expressed in f-stops. The smaller the number, the wider the aperture. This means the sensor captures more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling you to use a faster shutter speed. In addition, a wide aperture provides a narrow depth of field enabling you to focus on the subject and blur the background.
Has AF tracking
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
Noticeably shorter minimum focal length
4 mm shorter minimum focal length. Lenses with a shorter focal length allow you to capture a wider field of view. Anything below 20mm is considered a wide angle lens. These are ideal for landscape or architectural photography.
A little bigger screen size
7.14% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
Has manual shutter speed
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
Sizably longer exposure time
220 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.
Significantly less body volume
43.98% less body volume
2.50 mm narrower
11.20 mm thinner
