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

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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.

5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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 silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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.

2.widest aperture

f/3.5 (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

f/3.5

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.

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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 Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

Miscellaneous

1.has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.

2.Has focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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

3.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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 Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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.Is a normal lens
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

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.

6.Includes lens hood
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66

It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.
