Design

You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

155mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.height

78.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Videography

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.
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.

Optics

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.
2.has a BSI sensor
Sony FDR-AX33
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
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.
4.has a CMOS sensor
Sony FDR-AX33
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
This allows you to manually set the exposure.
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.

Audio

A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

Battery

The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Sony FDR-AX33
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
4.has NFC
Sony FDR-AX33
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
5.has a flash
Sony FDR-AX33
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
