Polaroid Snap: 81.2 x 25.4mm
3. 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.

6. 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.
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
