1.Has a flip-out screen
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7S
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7S
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

474g

489g

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.
4.viewfinder coverage

100%

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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
5.is dustproof and water-resistant

Sony Alpha 7S
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.

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.
2.focus points

117

25

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.
3.megapixels (main camera)

24.3MP

12.2MP

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

409600 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.
5.has AF tracking
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7S
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.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7S
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos

A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7S
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Sony A7 II
Sony Alpha 7S
