Cheap alternatives

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weight

570g

76g

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.
3.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
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.
4.Has a hot shoe
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
5.resolution

1250 x 833px

1249 x 833px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
6.screen resolution

1040k dots

1040k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

Optics

1.sensor size

22.3 x 14.9mm

14.9 x 22.3mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.
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.
4.maximum light sensitivity

12800 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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

1080 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.
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.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.has stereo speakers
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

440shots

230shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EOS M2
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.battery power

1120mAh

875mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
