More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
19.Clearly 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.
20.Substantially shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
