Logically for lower resolutions you can record video to more FPS, like Full HD to 60 FPS without going further. It is also compatible with HDR (high dynamic range) that improves the image in poor ambient light conditions, has 5x zoom, auto focus and a rather interesting aspect is that it allows the user to select the angle of vision in which he wants to capture the Image between 65, 78 and 90 degrees.
