1.Has a flip-out screen
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
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.


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.
5.viewfinder coverage


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.
6.Has a hot shoe
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.


1.sensor size

15.6 x 23.5mm

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


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)


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

16000 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


Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.


1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 23fps

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

3.supports AVCHD format
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
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.
4.movie bitrate


The higher the movie recording bitrate the better the movie quality with more and crispier details and less compression artifacts.


1.has a stereo microphone

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Sony SLT-A77VQ + Sony DT 16-50mm
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.number of microphones


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