Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
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.weight

247g

299g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.is dustproof and water-resistant
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

Optics

1.sensor size

6.17 x 4.55mm

13.2 x 8.8mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
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.
6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

2160 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.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
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 continuous autofocus when recording movies
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
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.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
6.supports slow-motion video recording
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.Has a zoom microphone
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
6.has stereo speakers
Olympus Tough TG-4
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
