Way more focus points
Comment

vs
23
2 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.

Has a 24p cinema mode
Comment
Yes
vs
No
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Considerably faster maximum shutter speed
Comment
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.

40
Has a two-stage shutter
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.

Is a system camera
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.

35
Plenty greater zoom range
Comment
4 x
vs
3.8 x
0.20 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.
anonymous
35
Has sensor shift stabilization
Comment
Yes
vs
No
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.

34
Has a BSI sensor
Comment
Yes
vs
No
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.

Appreciably longer maximum focal length
Comment
112 mm
vs
90 mm
22 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.

Can create panoramas in-camera
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
anonymous
32
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Comment
1.4
vs
1.8
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.
anonymous
30
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous

Explicitly longer exposure time
Comment
250 s
vs
30 s
220 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.

Has manual shutter speed
Comment
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.

Vastly shorter minimum focal length
Comment
24 mm
vs
28 mm
4 mm shorter minimum focal length. A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.

Comment
Yes
vs
No
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Comment
Yes
vs
No
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.

Every pixel has three subpixels
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
