Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
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.
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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
5.Has a hot shoe
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
6.screen resolution

1620k dots

921k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
7.is a system camera
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
8.has a touch screen
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
9.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display which shows the framed image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image; they can be more compact; it's easier to focus with digital zoom; and they sometimes offer extra info on the display (such as a live histogram).

Optics

1.sensor size

22.3 x 14.9mm

23.5 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
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.
7.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
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.
8.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

1080 x 60fps

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.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.Has timelapse function
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
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 a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
5.supports AVCHD format
Canon EOS M6
Sony A6000
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
