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

4.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

5.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

6.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

Optics

1.sensor size

6.17 x 4.55mm

23.5 x 15.6mm

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

2.has AF tracking
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

3.maximum light sensitivity

3200 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.

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Nikon Coolpix L820
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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)

1080 x 30fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon Coolpix L820
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 Coolpix L820
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 Coolpix L820

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

5.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Nikon Coolpix L820

Features

1.has an external memory slot
Nikon Coolpix L820
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 Coolpix L820

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

3.Has dual card slots
Nikon Coolpix L820
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 an accelerometer
Nikon Coolpix L820
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

5.has GPS
Nikon Coolpix L820
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.

6.has a HDMI output
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

Miscellaneous

1.has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Nikon Coolpix L820
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.

2.Has focus motor
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon Coolpix L820
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 Coolpix L820
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.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.

6.Can focus to infinity
Nikon Coolpix L820
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.
