The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
14.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
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.
15.Measurably less startup delay
1svs 35s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
17.Measurably longer exposure time
60svs 37s (the average)
vs 3600s (best: Hasselblad X1D-50c)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.

Yesvs No (99% don't have it)
Damage resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin and lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
19.Better magnification factor
0.68xvs 0.47x (the average)
vs 10x (best: Pentax X-5)
A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.
