13.Has an electronic viewfinder
Yesvs No (84% don't have it)
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.

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.
17.Appreciably longer exposure time
60svs 37s (the average)
vs 3600s (best: Hasselblad X1D-50c)
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.
