Significantly lower noise at high ISO
1167 ISO vs 722 ISO—1.62x lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
Appreciably larger sensor
15.6 x 23.6 mm
14.9 x 22.3 mm
15.6 x 23.6 mm vs 14.9 x 22.3 mm—10.80% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
Considerably more battery power
1900 mAh vs 1120 mAh—1.70x more battery power
Vastly better image quality
80 vs 62 —18 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Measurably less startup delay
0.13 s vs 0.15 s—0.02 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
Reasonably better color depth
23.5 bits vs 21.7 bits—8.29% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
Clearly 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.
Considerably wider dynamic range
13.9 EV vs 11.2 EV—24.11% 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.
A bit less body volume
1046 cm³ vs 1046.7 cm³—0.07% less body volume
Notably faster maximum shutter speed
0.000125 s vs 0.00025 s—2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
The device can connect to WiFi.
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
Has a built-in focus motor
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.
A little bit narrower
132 mm vs 133.1 mm—1.10 mm narrower
77 mm vs 78.8 mm—1.80 mm thinner
Substantially faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
6 fps vs 5 fps—20% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Distinctly more focus points
39 vs 9 —30 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.
