Design

1.Weather sealed
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

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

2.Has a flip-out screen
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

3.Is dustproof and water resistant
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

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.

For example

Canon EOS 200D

5.has an optical viewfinder
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

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.

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

6. more viewfinder coverage

100%

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.

Optics

1.focus points

225

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

Best

Canon EOS R

5655

2.sensor size

36 x 24mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

Best

Polaroid Snap

81.2 x 25.4mm

3.has AF tracking
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

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.

4.maximum light sensitivity

51200 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.

Best

Nikon D7500 + Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

1640000 ISO

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

6.megapixels

47.3MP

Best

Panono Camera

108MP

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

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.

For example

Sony A6400 + Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS

3.Has timelapse function
Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R
