Battery

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.has a removable battery
GoPro Hero8 Black
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
GoPro Hero8 Black
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
GoPro Hero8 Black
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Optics

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.
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 a CMOS sensor
GoPro Hero8 Black
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
4.has a flash
GoPro Hero8 Black
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
5.has touch autofocus
GoPro Hero8 Black
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
6.has a built-in HDR mode
GoPro Hero8 Black
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

Videography

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. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
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.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Field of view (FOV) is the part of the world that a device can view and record. A wider field of view allows you to capture more of the action.
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.
The higher the movie recording bitrate the better the movie quality with more and crispier details and less compression artifacts.
7.has a 24p cinema mode
GoPro Hero8 Black
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
9.shoots raw
GoPro Hero8 Black
A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.

Miscellaneous

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
3.displays 3D
GoPro Hero8 Black
The device can display 3D images without the need for wearing special glasses. The display's special construction allows viewers to get a sense of an image's depth by tailoring its position to fit the user's perspective.
Some manufacturers include a memory card in the box. An SD card with a higher storage capacity allows you to extend the storage space on your device with ease, providing you with more space for your data.
5.has an optical viewfinder
GoPro Hero8 Black
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.
6.Has a built-in projector
GoPro Hero8 Black
You can use your device as a projector.
7.has two sensors
GoPro Hero8 Black
The device has two sensors and two lenses. The 3D images may be seen in the parallax-barrier LCD panel without glasses.
8.has stereo speakers
GoPro Hero8 Black
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
