Hey @google-fc0f1a8b96d4ec398896b3c7138b09fd:disqus , thanks for your comment. Snapsort uses true resolution which is based on the cameras sensor size and not the artificially high number of MP that a camera manufacture says a camera has.
Looks like you are right about the continuous shooting, we will update that soon.

Specs for the Canon SX260 are wrong: It's has a 12.1 MPixel sensor (not 9.7), shoots at 10.3 fps (not 3.2). I think this should tilt the scale a bit.
