Vastly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10 fps
vs
2.4 fps
4.17x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

41
Significantly higher maximum light sensitivity
12800 ISO
vs
6400 ISO
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.

29
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yes
vs

The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
28
Has manual exposure
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the exposure.
anonymous
28
Longer maximum focal length
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.

A little less body volume
117.04 cm³
vs
123.35 cm³
5.39% less body volume
anonymous
27
Significantly longer exposure time
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.

26
Has an accelerometer
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.

Top Seven Reasons for the

Canon IXUS 255 HS

Compared to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150

anonymous
39
Measurably faster maximum shutter speed
0.0005 s
vs
0.000625 s
25% faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
anonymous
32
Has a BSI sensor
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.
anonymous
31
Has GPS
Yes
vs
No
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
anonymous
30
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Yes
vs
No
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
anonymous
30
Shorter minimum focal length
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.
anonymous
30
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
3
vs
3.3
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the 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
23
Has a hot shoe
Yes
vs
No
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
