Design

1.resolution

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.
2.pixel density

544ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.Has a flip-out screen
Sony Alpha 7R
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
4.viewfinder coverage

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.Has a hot shoe
Sony Alpha 7R
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Sony Alpha 7R
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Optics

1.focus points

117

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.
2.sensor size

35.8 x 23.9mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.has AF tracking
Sony Alpha 7R
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.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony Alpha 7R
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
5.maximum light sensitivity

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.
6.has built-in optical image stabilization
Sony Alpha 7R
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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

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 continuous autofocus when recording movies
Sony Alpha 7R
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.has a 24p cinema mode
Sony Alpha 7R
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
4.supports AVCHD format
Sony Alpha 7R
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Sony Alpha 7R
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input

1.Battery life (CIPA)

340shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Sony Alpha 7R

3.has a rechargeable battery
Sony Alpha 7R
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
