4.Has a hot shoe
?

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Nikon D5
5.has an optical viewfinder
?

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
?

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.
