40
Distinctly faster maximum shutter speed
0.000125 s

2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
anonymous
38
Has a 24p cinema mode

Yes
vs
No
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
anonymous
34
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yes
vs
No
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

32
Considerably faster flash X-sync
0.004 s
vs
0.005 s
25% faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
anonymous
32
Has a microphone in
Yes
vs
No
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
anonymous
29
Has touch autofocus
Yes
vs
No
