Substantially faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
15% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Considerably higher maximum light sensitivity
1.94x 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.
A little more battery power
1.60% more battery power
Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
Distinctly greater zoom range
4 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
Has manual shutter speed
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
Appreciably longer maximum focal length
120 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
Has an accelerometer
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes from a vertical to a horizontal position.
