Design

1.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

2.Weather sealed
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

3.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

5. higher resolution (screen)

Optics

1.focus points

3.has AF tracking
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

5.maximum light sensitivity

12800 ISO

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.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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 timelapse function
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

5.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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

Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.

2.can be controlled remotely
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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

3.Has dual card slots
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

4.has a HDMI output
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.

5.has an accelerometer
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

2.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.

4.Is a normal lens
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

A normal lens is one that doesn't fall into another category such as wide angle or telephoto, and typically has a focal length between 35mm and 70mm. These lenses aren't tailored towards a specific type of photography, and so are quite versatile.

5.Can focus to infinity
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

6.Lens hood is reversible
Nikon 1 S2
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

The lens hood can screw onto the lens in reverse so that you can keep it on your camera at all times, ready to use.
