Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon Coolpix S9500
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

3.Has a hot shoe

6.every pixel has three subpixels
Nikon Coolpix S9500
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

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.

3.maximum light sensitivity

1600 ISO

12800 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 S9500
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

4.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon Coolpix S9500
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.
