2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
6.08 x 4.56mm

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.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

16g lighter.

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.

7. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
240shots

8. video recording

1.5x better video recording quality.

9. Has WiFi

11. pixel density

1.5x higher pixel density.
326ppi

12. width

2.7mm narrower.
61mm

13. has a built-in HDR mode

14. height

6mm shorter.

15. volume

1.59% less body volume.

16. resolution

2.01x higher resolution.

17. has built-in optical image stabilization

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.
