3.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.

4.Is dustproof and water resistant
?

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

Nikon Coolpix W150
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

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Canon PowerShot SX730 HS
Nikon Coolpix W150
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.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Canon PowerShot SX730 HS
Nikon Coolpix W150

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. larger sensor
?

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

3. wider aperture at minimum focal length
?

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

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.

Nikon Coolpix W150
5. higher 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.

Videography

1. better video recording quality (main camera)
?

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.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
?

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

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

4.Has timelapse function
?

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

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Canon PowerShot SX730 HS
