Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Samsung EX2F
Sony Alpha a7 III

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2.Weather sealed
Samsung EX2F
Sony Alpha a7 III

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

3.has an optical viewfinder
Samsung EX2F
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.

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

4.Has a built-in focus motor
Samsung EX2F
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)
Samsung EX2F
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.

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

6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Samsung EX2F
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.
