Significantly more megapixels (photo)
1.67x more megapixels (photo)
Slightly larger sensor
15.6 x 23.5 mm
15.4 x 23.1 mm
3.05% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Notably more focus points
28 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.
Distinctly lower noise at high ISO
39.72% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Explicitly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
1.67x 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 better image quality
17 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
Significantly 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 60 fps
1080 x 24 fps
2.50x better video recording quality
Lots better color depth
7.56% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
Has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
A shade more battery power
3% more battery power
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Considerably higher resolution
4x higher resolution
Appreciably wider dynamic range
23.01% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
Notably higher resolution (screen)
921 k dots
230 k dots
691 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 timelapse function
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
Newer EXPEED version
Newer EXPEED 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.
