2.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

Canon EOS M3
Canon EOS M50
3.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

Canon EOS 450D

Canon EOS M3
Canon EOS M50
4. more viewfinder coverage
?

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.Is dustproof and water-resistant
?

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

For example

Olympus Tough TG-6

Canon EOS M3

6.has an optical viewfinder
?

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

For example

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Canon EOS M3
Canon EOS M50

Optics

1.has AF tracking
?

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.

Canon EOS M50
2.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.

4.maximum light sensitivity
?

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
?

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

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

Canon EOS M3
Canon EOS M50
6.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
?

A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)
?

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
?

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.
