Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

4.has an optical viewfinder
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony A6000

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.

5. more viewfinder coverage

95%

100%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony A6000

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 AF tracking
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony A6000

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.

4.maximum light sensitivity

12800 ISO

25600 ISO

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.

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony A6000

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
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony A6000

A normal lens is one that doesn't fall into another category such as wide angle or telephoto, and typically has a focal length between 35mm and 70mm. These lenses aren't tailored towards a specific type of photography, and so are quite versatile.
