Design

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.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.has a touch screen
Sony RX0 II
Z CAM E1
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
4.weight

132g

210g

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.
6.thickness

35mm

50.25mm

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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

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 a 24p cinema mode
Sony RX0 II
Z CAM E1
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. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.Has timelapse function
Sony RX0 II
Z CAM E1
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

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 RX0 II
Z CAM E1
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.
3.has manual ISO
Sony RX0 II
Z CAM E1
This allows you to manually set the ISO level.
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.
5.has a CMOS sensor
Sony RX0 II
Z CAM E1
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.
6.has manual exposure
Sony RX0 II
Z CAM E1
This allows you to manually set the exposure.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
