Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2.Weather sealed
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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

3.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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.

4. more viewfinder coverage

98%

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.

5.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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 a silent focus motor built into the lens
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

Optics

1.sensor size

36 x 24mm

35.9 x 23.9mm

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

2.focus points

45

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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

102400 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.

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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.

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

2160 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.

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Nikon D850

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
