compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon 1100D compared to mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it has higher quality type of viewfinder (pentamirror vs none), slightly larger viewfinder (0.54x vs 0.46x), much more lenses available (220 lenses vs 55 lenses), has a significantly longer battery life (700 shots vs 330 shots) and focuses automatically (phase detection vs contrast detection).

However, on average it records lower quality movies (720p @ 30fps vs 1080p @ 30fps), has a much smaller screen (2.7" vs 3"), has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 614k dots), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs lens) and takes slightly lower resolution photos (12.2 MP vs 20.1 MP).
