Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS

2.Weather sealed
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

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

3.has an optical viewfinder
Polaroid iS2132
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.

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Polaroid iS2132
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

5.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.

Optics

1.has AF tracking
Polaroid iS2132
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.

2.megapixels

16MP

24MP

Best

Panono Camera

108MP

3.maximum light sensitivity

3200 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.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 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.

6.has sensor shift stabilization
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

720 x 60fps

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.

Best

Fujifilm X-T3

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

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.

3.Has timelapse function
Polaroid iS2132
Sony Alpha a7 III

A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.

For example

Leica Q-P

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
