Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.is dustproof and water-resistant
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
5.weight

599g

474g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
6.Has a hot shoe
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
7.resolution

1358 x 906px

1358 x 906px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
8.screen resolution

1230k dots

1230k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
9.is a system camera
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.

Optics

1.sensor size

35.8 x 23.9mm

35.8 x 23.9mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
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.
7.has built-in optical image stabilization
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
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.
8.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
