Significantly larger sensor
4.8 x 6.4 mm
4.55 x 6.17 mm
9.43% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Significantly more megapixels (photo)
33.33% more megapixels (photo)
Distinctly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
2.40x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Somewhat more battery power
8.11% more battery power
Significantly higher maximum light sensitivity
2x 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.
Has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
Appreciably higher optical zoom
10 x higher optical zoom. Optical zoom allows taking close-ups of far away objects easily without interfering with the photographed subject. High optical zoom is often found in high-end pocket cameras and tele-lenses for DSLRs.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Significantly wider aperture
11.43% wider aperture. Aperture sizes are expressed in f-stops. The smaller the number, the wider the aperture. This means the sensor captures more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling you to use a faster shutter speed. In addition, a wide aperture provides a narrow depth of field enabling you to focus on the subject and blur the background.
Sizably longer maximum focal length
220 mm longer maximum focal length. Long focal lengths (>100 mm) let you take close up pictures of things far away from you. These are called telephoto lenses and are good for things like wildlife photography.
Distinctly shorter minimum focal length
4 mm shorter minimum focal length. Lenses with a shorter focal length allow you to capture a wider field of view. Anything below 20mm is considered a wide angle lens. These are ideal for landscape or architectural photography.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Considerably longer exposure time
4 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
