Design

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon PowerShot Zoom
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon PowerShot Zoom
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.weight

145g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.has an optical viewfinder
Canon PowerShot Zoom
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.
5.Has a hot shoe
Canon PowerShot Zoom
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
6.is a system camera
Canon PowerShot Zoom
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.

Optics

1.sensor size

4.8 x 3.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.megapixels (main camera)

12.1MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
3.has AF tracking
Canon PowerShot Zoom
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.
4.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Canon PowerShot Zoom
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon PowerShot Zoom
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.
6.Has a two-stage shutter
Canon PowerShot Zoom
A two-stage shutter can help you take photos like a pro: just slightly press the button for the lens to focus, and then push it fully to capture the photograph.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

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
Canon PowerShot Zoom
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.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon PowerShot Zoom
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Canon PowerShot Zoom
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.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon PowerShot Zoom
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
6.supports slow-motion video recording
Canon PowerShot Zoom
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon PowerShot Zoom
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Canon PowerShot Zoom
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Canon PowerShot Zoom
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.Has a zoom microphone
Canon PowerShot Zoom
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
5.has stereo speakers
Canon PowerShot Zoom
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
