Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Nikon Coolpix P950
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Nikon Coolpix P950
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

1kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon Coolpix P950
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
6.Has a hot shoe
Nikon Coolpix P950
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Optics

1.sensor size

6.17 x 4.55mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.megapixels (main camera)

16MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
3.maximum light sensitivity

6400 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.
4.continuous shooting at high resolution

7fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Nikon Coolpix P950
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.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Nikon Coolpix P950
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

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.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Nikon Coolpix P950
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 continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon Coolpix P950
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Nikon Coolpix P950
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.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon Coolpix P950
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
6.supports slow-motion video recording
Nikon Coolpix P950
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Nikon Coolpix P950
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Nikon Coolpix P950
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Nikon Coolpix P950
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.Has a zoom microphone
Nikon Coolpix P950
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.
6.has stereo speakers
Nikon Coolpix P950
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
