Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

2.Has a built-in focus motor
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

3.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.

4.Is a normal lens
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2
