3. focus points

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.

6. maximum light sensitivity

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.

28. more viewfinder coverage

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

29. has an optical viewfinder

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

33. shoots raw

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.

35. flash sync speed

Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
