1.has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D3400

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Sony A6400 + Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS

2.Weather sealed

Nikon D3400

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

For example

Sony A6400 + Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS

3.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D3400

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.

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D3400

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

5. more viewfinder coverage

95%

95%

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.

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

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.

Best

Polaroid Snap

2.has AF tracking
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D3400

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.

3.maximum light sensitivity

12800 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.
