7.Sizably higher resolution
831x1,108pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
8.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
9.A little bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
10.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
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.
11.Has touch autofocus
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
12.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
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.
13.Notably more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
14.Sizably greater zoom range
24xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
15.A shade wider aperture at minimum focal length
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
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.
16.Significantly longer maximum focal length
600mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
17.Considerably shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
