A 24.3MP sensor, 2.4 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder, GPS, 19 autofocus points, 12 frames-per-second full-resolution shooting and translucent mirror tech — unlike traditional DSLR cameras, there’s no need to raise and lower the mirror, and it’s this that allows such speedy continuous shooting.
