Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2.Weather sealed

Sony Alpha a7 III

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

3.Is dustproof and water resistant
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

4. more viewfinder coverage

95%

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 an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.

For example

Canon EOS 200D

Optics

1.focus points

45

693

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.

Best

Canon EOS R

2.sensor size

22.3 x 14.9mm

35.8 x 23.8mm

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

Best

Polaroid Snap

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.megapixels

Panono Camera

108MP

5.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.

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 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.

For example

Leica Q-P

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

6.has a zoom microphone
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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

2.Is a normal lens
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

A normal lens is one that doesn't fall into another category such as wide angle or telephoto, and typically has a focal length between 35mm and 70mm. These lenses aren't tailored towards a specific type of photography, and so are quite versatile.

3.Has a metal mount
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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

4.Has full-time manual focus
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.
