Compared to Sony Cyber-shot WX200

anonymous
39
Significantly 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
36
A little bit higher resolution
784x588 px
vs
905x509 px
0.08% higher resolution
anonymous
34
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yes
vs
No
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
anonymous
33
Significantly more microphone(s)
2
vs
1
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
anonymous
32
Has AF tracking
Yes
vs
No
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
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
29
A little bit bigger screen size
3 "
vs
2.7 "
11.11% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
anonymous
27
Distinctly longer exposure time
15 s
vs
4 s
11 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.
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.
