24. 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.

26. 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.

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.
