Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

Canon EOS M100
Sony A5100
2.Has a built-in focus motor
?

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

Nikon D6

Canon EOS M100
Sony A5100
3.Has a hot shoe
?

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

For example

Nikon D6

Canon EOS M100
Sony A5100
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
?

The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image. Show more

?

Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images. Show more

Canon EOS M100

4.Has timelapse function
?

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. Show more
