179
Substantially larger sensor
Comment
23.8 x 35.8mm
vs
15.6 x 23.5mm
2.32x larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

95
Appreciably higher maximum light sensitivity
Comment
25600ISO
vs
16000ISO
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.

71
Considerably longer battery life
Comment
500shots
vs
430shots
70shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

67
Higher pixel density
Comment
544ppi
vs
471ppi
15.50% higher pixel density

62
Vastly faster maximum shutter speed
Comment
0.000125s
vs
0.00025s
2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

60
Vastly higher resolution
Comment
1358x905px
vs
1176x784px
33.30% higher resolution

55
Significantly higher resolution (screen)
Comment
1229k dots
vs
921k dots
308k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

51
Amply narrower
Comment
111.2mm
vs
120mm
8.80mm narrower

×

47
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.

×

46
Has GPS
Comment
Yes
vs
No
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.

×

46
Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.

×

45
Weather sealed
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

×

43
Has an optical viewfinder
Comment
Yes
vs
No
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

37
Noticeably faster flash X-sync
Comment
0.004s
vs
0.00625s
1.56x 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.

×

32
Has dual card slots
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
