Distinctly longer exposure time
Comment
30 s
vs
15 s
15 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.

Longer maximum focal length
Comment
250 mm
vs
240 mm
10 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 GPS
Comment
Yes
vs
No
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.

Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Comment
3
vs
3.3
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
Shorter minimum focal length
Comment
24 mm
vs
25 mm
1 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.

Has a hot shoe
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.
