Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
4.weight

898g

665g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.has an optical viewfinder
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
6.Has a hot shoe
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Optics

1.sensor size

23.1 x 12.99mm

35.7 x 23.8mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.megapixels (main camera)

21.2MP

61MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
3.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

102800 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
4.has AF tracking
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
5.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

3456 x 50fps

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV

4.Has timelapse function
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV

5.has a 24p cinema mode
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
6.supports slow-motion video recording
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
Sony a7R IV
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
