53
Appreciably more focus points
15
vs
9
6 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.

Appreciably larger sensor
23.5 x 15.6 mm
vs
14.9 x 22.3 mm
10.33% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

44
Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
12 fps
vs
5 fps
2.40x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
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.

33
Supports AVCHD format
Yes
vs
No
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

33
Noticeably 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.

32
Has a microphone in
Yes
vs
No
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
anonymous
31
Has a built-in focus motor
Yes
vs
No
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.
anonymous
31
Can create panoramas in-camera
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
30
Has sensor shift stabilization
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.
anonymous
29
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
26
Wireless charging
Yes
vs
No
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.

Noticeably more megapixels (photo)
18.5 MP
vs
16.1 MP
14.91% more megapixels (photo)
anonymous
42
Noticeably higher maximum light sensitivity
25600 ISO
vs
16000 ISO
1.60x 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.

A little higher pixel density
501 ppi
vs
471 ppi
6.37% higher pixel density

Vastly higher resolution
1250x833 px

32
Noticeably faster flash X-sync
0.005 s
vs
0.00625 s
25% faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.

29
Has touch autofocus
Yes
vs
No
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.

Has manual shutter speed
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
anonymous
27
Considerably more cross-type focus points
9
vs
3
6 more cross-type focus points. Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.

27
Has a touch screen
Yes
vs
No
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
