Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Nikon D5300 + AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2. more viewfinder coverage

95%

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 afterwards to get them looking perfect.

3.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D5300 + AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

4.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon D5300 + AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

5.Is a system camera
Nikon D5300 + AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.

2.sensor size

23.5 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3.widest aperture

f/3.5 (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

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.

4.has AF tracking
Nikon D5300 + AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

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.megapixels

6.maximum light sensitivity

25600 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.

5.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon D5300 + AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

6.vignetting

-1.2 (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

The vignetting result from the DxOMark set of metrics. Vignetting refers to when the brightness of an image changes from the center towards the edges, resulting in darkened corners. A result of 0 is perfect and the image will have no vignetting. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.
