6.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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.

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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

51200 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.

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

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.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

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 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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

3.Is a telephoto lens
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

A telephoto lens allows you to zoom in on far away objects. This is particularly useful when you need to photograph a subject from a distance, such as wildlife photography, or even in some cases street photography where you can’t get near the subject.

4.Has full-time manual focus
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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.

5.Can focus to infinity
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Nikon D800E

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.
