Cameras with longer battery life can take more photos before exhausting their batteries.
Special note: The measurement standard for battery life stipulates that if a camera has an internal flash, it must be used for 50% of photos taken. For this reason, comparisons of one camera with an internal flash to another without will not be comparable
Smaller, lighter body than flagship X-T1; Plenty of external controls; Bright and high-res electronic viewfinder; Great still image quality even at high sensitivity; Good all-around performance; Capable Wi-Fi remote control; Good kit-lens options
Handgrip is rather shallow; Movie button is hard to press; JPEGs have limited dynamic range by default; Indoor white balance tends rather warm; Limited burst depth even for JPEG; Penalizes early shutter button press; Movie image quality lags the competition
Very good image quality; Better RAW high ISO performance than predecessor; Improved buffer depth; Very fast AF; Dual Pixel CMOS AF is excellent; f/8 AF support; 1080/60p video; Headphone jack; Very good battery life.
