Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
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

691g

1.05kg

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.viewfinder coverage

100%

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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
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

4.55 x 6.17mm

13.2 x 8.8mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.megapixels (main camera)

12MP

20.1MP

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.
3.maximum light sensitivity

6400 ISO

25600 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.
4.continuous shooting at high resolution

12fps

14fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
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
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
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)

2160 x 24fps

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 continuous autofocus when recording movies

4.supports slow-motion video recording
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
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.
5.supports AVCHD format
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
