Nikon D800E

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.

4.Is dustproof and water resistant

Nikon D800E

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

5.has an optical viewfinder
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Nikon D800E

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.

6.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.

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.
