4.has an optical viewfinder
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3
Sony Alpha a7 III

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

5.Has a built-in focus motor
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3
Sony Alpha a7 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.

For example

Canon EOS 200D

6.Is a system camera

3.has AF tracking
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3
Sony Alpha a7 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.

4.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.
