Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS

2.Weather sealed
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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

3.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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.

5.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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.

6.Is a system camera
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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

Optics

1.has AF tracking
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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.megapixels

45.7MP

20MP

Best

Panono Camera

108MP

3.maximum light sensitivity

102400 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.

4.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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.

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

6.has sensor shift stabilization
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.

For example

Nikon Z7

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

1080 x 30fps

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.

Best

Fujifilm X-T3

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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 D850
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

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
