Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

4.Weather sealed
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.has AF tracking
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

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.

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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 timelapse function
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

5.supports AVCHD format

Sony A6000

AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

6.has a 24p cinema mode

Sony A6000

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 stereo microphone

Sony A6000

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.

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

2.Is a normal lens
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

3.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

4.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

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.

5.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony A6000

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

6.Lens hood is reversible

Sony A6000

The lens hood can screw onto the lens in reverse so that you can keep it on your camera at all times, ready to use.
