Top specs and features

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

2.Weather sealed
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

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

3.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

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.

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

4.Is dustproof and water resistant
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

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

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

5.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

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

6. more viewfinder coverage

100%

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.

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

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

25600 ISO

51200 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 M5
Canon EOS M50

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

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

2160 x 24fps

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.

Best

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Canon EOS M5
Canon EOS M50

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 M5
Canon EOS M50

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

Olympus OM-D E-M1X

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon EOS M5
