Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Sony SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.Has a built-in focus motor
Sony SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
3.weight

492g

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%

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 SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
6.resolution

1176 x 784px

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.

Optics

1.sensor size

23.4 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.focus points

15

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)

14.2MP

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

12800 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.continuous shooting at high resolution

7fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

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 phase-detection autofocus for videos
Sony SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
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 SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.supports AVCHD format
Sony SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
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 SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Sony SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

270shots

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 SLT-A33 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
