1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
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.


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.
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 D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
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 D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
8.is a system camera
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
9.has a touch screen
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.


1.sensor size

23.9 x 36mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
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.
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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
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.
7.has built-in optical image stabilization
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
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.
8.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.


1.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
2.Has timelapse function
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
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.


1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.


CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

5.Has a remote control
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
6.has an external memory slot
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
8.has an HDMI output
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
9.has an accelerometer
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
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.
