CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
Nikon D3x: 4400shots
6. video recording
1280 x 30fps
Canon EOS 1D X Mark II: 2160 x 60fps
7. fastest shutter speed
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

12. has built-in optical image stabilization
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.
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.

17. Can create panoramas in-camera
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

18. screen size
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2: 4.8"
19. has sensor shift stabilization
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.

20. has a flash
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

21. number of microphones
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Leica CL: 2
22. optical zoom
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Nikon Coolpix P900: 83.3x
23. widest aperture
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.
Ricoh GR II: f/1
24. has a serial shot mode
You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.

25. exposure time
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
