54 facts in comparison
Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
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.
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.
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
23.6 x 15.8mm
6.17 x 4.55mm
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
81.2 x 25.4mm
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.
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.

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Nikon Coolpix P1000
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.
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

The device can connect to WiFi.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
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.
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
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.
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.
