Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
12.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
13.A shade bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))

Yesvs No (85% don't have it)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
15.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
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.
16.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
17.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
18.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
19.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
20.Has 802.11n WiFi connection

21.Vastly wider aperture at minimum focal length
2vs 3 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
22.Vastly shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
23.Has a compass
Yesvs No (98% don't have it)
A compass is useful in games, map and navigation software.
