Design

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.
3.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.
4.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.
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.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Optics

1.wide aperture (main camera)
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
2.focus points

51

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.
3.sensor size

23.9 x 36mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
4.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.
5.optical zoom
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
6.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.

Videography

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

Audio

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.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

4300shots

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.battery power

2500mAh

Battery power, also called battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy stored in the battery. Measured in milliampere-hours (mAh), it indicates how much electric power can be used over time. More battery power translates into longer battery life.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
5.has a battery level indicator
Nikon D3 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
