A shade larger sensor
15.6 x 23.5 mm
15.4 x 23.2 mm
2.61% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Clearly 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.
Appreciably lower noise at high ISO
13.53% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Measurably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
25% 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.
Better image quality
3 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
Explicitly 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.
Distinctly better video recording quality
1080 x 60 fps
1080 x 30 fps
2x better video recording quality
Somewhat better color depth
0.41% 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.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Way wider dynamic range
5.30% 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.
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.
