Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS

2.Weather sealed
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

3.Is dustproof and water resistant
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

4.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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.

5. more viewfinder coverage

100%

100%

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.

6.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.

For example

Optics

1.focus points

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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.

5.maximum light sensitivity

102400 ISO

3200 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.

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

2.Has a metal mount
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.

4.Front element doesn't rotate
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

5.Has full-time manual focus
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

6.Can focus to infinity
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.
