Design

1.resolution

1176 x 784px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
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.
4.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.
5.Has a hot shoe
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
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.

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

39

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

23.6 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
4.has AF tracking
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G 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.
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 D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 24fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
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.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

1050shots

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 D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.battery power

1900mAh

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 D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
5.has a battery level indicator
Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
