Pentax K-1

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon Coolpix P1000
Pentax K-1

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

Pentax K-1

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

5. more viewfinder coverage

99%

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.

6.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon Coolpix P1000
Pentax K-1

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.

Optics

1.sensor size

6.17 x 4.55mm

35.9 x 24mm

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

2.has AF tracking
Nikon Coolpix P1000
Pentax K-1

3.megapixels

16MP

36.4MP

Best

Panono Camera

108MP

4.maximum light sensitivity

6400 ISO

204800 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.

Pentax K-1

A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Nikon Coolpix P1000
Pentax K-1

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.
