Considerably more megapixels (photo)
1.92x more megapixels (photo)
Substantially 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.
Clearly lower noise at high ISO
31.42% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Considerably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
11.11% 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.
Appreciably better image quality
11 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
65 g lighter
Notably higher maximum light sensitivity
4x 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.
Sizably better video recording quality
1080 x 60 fps
720 x 24 fps
3.75x better video recording quality
Lots better color depth
6.61% 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.
Measurably wider dynamic range
11.20% 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 a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Marginally less body volume
6.08% less body volume
5 mm shorter
Slightly higher resolution (screen)
921 k dots
920 k dots
1 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
3 mm narrower
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.
