Has timelapse function
Comment
Yes

36
Significantly faster flash X-sync
Comment
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.

×

32
Has dual card slots
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.

Considerably more focus points
Comment
61

Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
Comment
6 fps
vs

92
Clearly higher maximum light sensitivity
Comment
102400 ISO
vs
25600 ISO
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.

34
Clearly more cross-type focus points
Comment
41
