Top specs and features

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

2.Weather sealed
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

3.has an optical viewfinder
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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 PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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 PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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.

6.Has a hot shoe
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

Optics

1.sensor size

4.55 x 6.17mm

6.2 x 4.5mm

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

Best

Polaroid Snap

81.2 x 25.4mm

2.has AF tracking
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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

3200 ISO

1600 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.

Best

Nikon D7500 + Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

1640000 ISO

4.optical zoom

25x

40x

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Best

Nikon Coolpix P1000

125x

5.megapixels

21MP

21MP

Best

Panono Camera

108MP

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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.

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.

Best

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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.

For example

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

3.Has timelapse function
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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 PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

5.supports AVCHD format
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

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.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

6.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

For example

Olympus OM-D E-M1X

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

2.has a microphone in
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
