The aperture of any camera is the hole behind the lens through that allows light to reach the sensor. In other words, the larger it is, the more light is able to reach the sensor.

It also has a large 1/2.55” sensor that has 1.4µm pixels which are among the largest in the industry. Larger sensors and pixels also contribute to increasing the camera’s light sensitivity.
