Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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

495g

380g

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
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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.focus points

9

9

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
2.megapixels (main camera)

12.6MP

16.1MP

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

6400 ISO

25600 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.continuous shooting at high resolution

3fps

8.6fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

720 x 29.97fps

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
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
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.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.number of microphones

1

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.Has a zoom microphone
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
6.has stereo speakers
Canon Canon EOS Rebel T3
Olympus PEN E-PL10
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
