Polaroid Snap: 81.2 x 38mm
3. focus points
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.
Sony Alpha a6500: 425
4. continuous shooting at high resolution
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II: 60fps
HTC Re: 65.50g
6. maximum light sensitivity
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.
Pentax KP: 819200ISO
7. video recording
1080 x 30fps
Canon EOS 1D X Mark II: 2160 x 60fps
8. longer battery life
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
Nikon D3x: 4400shots
9. fastest shutter speed
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S: 1517 x 1920px
17. screen size
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2: 4.80"
18. has sensor shift stabilization
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.

19. has AF tracking
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.

20. has a flash
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

22. shoots raw
A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.

23. has a CMOS sensor
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

24. widest aperture
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
Ricoh GR II: 1f
25. has a serial shot mode
You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.

26. maximum focal length
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
Nikon Coolpix P900: 2m
