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

4.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

5.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

6.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

Optics

1.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.

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

4.maximum light sensitivity

102400 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.

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

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 timelapse function

Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
