Top specs and features

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Leica D-Lux 7

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

2.Weather sealed
Leica D-Lux 7

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
Leica D-Lux 7

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.

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Leica D-Lux 7

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.

For example

Canon EOS 200D

5. more viewfinder coverage

100%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

Best

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

100%

6.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Leica D-Lux 7

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

For example

Canon EOS Rebel T7

Optics

1.sensor size

17.3 x 13mm

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

Best

Polaroid Snap

81.2 x 25.4mm

2.focus points

49

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

Best

Canon EOS R

5655

3.has AF tracking
Leica D-Lux 7

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.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 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

5.optical zoom

3.1x

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

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Leica D-Lux 7

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)

2160 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.

Best

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Leica D-Lux 7

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
Leica D-Lux 7

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
Leica D-Lux 7

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

5.supports AVCHD format
Leica D-Lux 7

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.

6.has a 24p cinema mode
Leica D-Lux 7

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

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Leica D-Lux 7

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

2.has a microphone in
Leica D-Lux 7

A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Leica D-Lux 7

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

4.has stereo speakers
Leica D-Lux 7

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

5.Has a zoom microphone
Leica D-Lux 7

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.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II

Battery

1. longer battery life

340shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

Best

Nikon D3x

4400shots

2.has a removable battery
Leica D-Lux 7

The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

3.has a rechargeable battery
Leica D-Lux 7

The battery can be recharged and used over again.

4.has a battery level indicator
Leica D-Lux 7

An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

5.wireless charging
Leica D-Lux 7

The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.

Leica D-Lux 7

A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

5.has an accelerometer
Leica D-Lux 7

An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.

6.Has dual card slots
Leica D-Lux 7

It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
