3.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

Nikon D6

Ricoh WG-70
4.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

For example

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III

Ricoh WG-70
5.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

Nikon D6

Ricoh WG-70
6.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

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III

Optics

1.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.

2.wide aperture (main camera)
?

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. Show more

Ricoh GR II

f/1.00

f/3.50

3.sensor size
?

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

4.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

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H

5.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
?

Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images. Show more

For example

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III

Ricoh WG-70
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. Show more
