24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
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.

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
It allows you to shoot a panorama 360° in every direction, by stitching together multiple shots that you take while turning on the spot. This creates a spherical 360° panorama, which allows you to look around in all directions instead of just horizontally.
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
A compass is useful in games, map and navigation software.
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.
