Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6
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
Nikon Z6
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

675g

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
Nikon Z6
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
Nikon Z6
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

35.9 x 23.9mm

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
Nikon Z6
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 built-in optical image stabilization
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6
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.
5.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
6.shoots raw
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6
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.

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 phase-detection autofocus for videos

3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

4.Has timelapse function

Nikon Z6
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.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6

6.supports slow-motion video recording
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Nikon Z6
