Design

1.Weather-sealed (splashproof)
?

The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.

For example

Nikon Z50 + Nikon Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX850
2.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.

3.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

4.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.

For example

Fujifilm X-A7

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX850
5.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

Sony a6100

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX850
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
?

The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

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.

2.sensor size
?

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3.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.

4.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.
