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.

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. has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

10. 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
18. Is dustproof and water resistant
Dustproof / water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1m.

19. has built-in optical image stabilization
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.

20. screen size
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2: 4.80"
21. Can create panoramas in-camera
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

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

23. 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.

24. 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.

25. has a two-stage shutter
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.

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

27. can be controlled remotely
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.

28. has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

29. has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

30. optical zoom
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Nikon Coolpix P900: 83.30x
31. has a serial shot mode
You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.
88% have it
32. 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
33. 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.

34. 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
35. has a HDMI output
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
