What are the features and how will they benefit you?
GUI Menu (Graphical User Interface) - the menu is easy to understand and find your way through because it uses pictures, not just words
High Capacity Battery
- spare batteries are available in higher capacity so they last longer.  Also, you can reduce charge time by 25% using the optional fast charger
(ACVQH10)
Super Steady Shot (Image Stabilisation) - helps eliminate blur due to shaky hands which is very important at full zoom (a small movement of the hand can cause a lot of movement at the other end)
