Cheap alternatives

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark 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
Canon EOS 5D Mark 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

355g

890g

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.is dustproof and water-resistant
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark 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.

Optics

1.sensor size

12.48 x 7.02mm

36 x 24mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.has AF tracking
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark 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.
4.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
5.shoots raw
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
6.Has a two-stage shutter
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
A two-stage shutter can help you take photos like a pro: just slightly press the button for the lens to focus, and then push it fully to capture the photograph.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

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 continuous autofocus when recording movies
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.Has timelapse function
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
5.supports slow-motion video recording
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Canon EOS 5D Mark 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. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
6.supports AVCHD format
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
