Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
2.Has a built-in focus motor
?

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

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
3.has an optical viewfinder
?

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

For example

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Ricoh WG-6
4.Has a hot shoe
?

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
5.Is a system camera
?

A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
?

The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Optics

1.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.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
2. more 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.

3. larger sensor
?

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

Best

Polaroid Snap

81.2 x 25.4mm

6.17 x 4.55mm

4. wider aperture at minimum focal length
?

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.

Best

Ricoh GR II

5.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.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
6. higher 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.

Videography

1.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
?

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.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
2.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
?

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

Ricoh WG-6
3.Has timelapse function
?

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.

Ricoh WG-6
4.has a 24p cinema mode
?

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
5.supports AVCHD format
?

AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

For example

Pentax K-1 + Pentax D FA 24-70mm HD f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Ricoh WG-6
6.Supports slow motion video recording
?

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
?

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

Ricoh WG-6
2.has a microphone input
?

A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.

For example

Fujifilm X-T30 + Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

Ricoh WG-6
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
?

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

For example
