1.has a flip-out screen
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS

2.Weather sealed
Nikon D850

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

3. more viewfinder coverage

100%

95%

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 afterwards to get them looking perfect.

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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 D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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 D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

Videography

1.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

2.Has timelapse function
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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 D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D850
Sony A230 DSLR + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.
