Top specs and features

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Zeiss ZX1

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

2.Weather sealed
Zeiss ZX1

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

3.Is dustproof and water resistant
Zeiss ZX1

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7

4.has an optical viewfinder
Zeiss ZX1

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

5.Has a built-in focus motor
Zeiss ZX1

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.

For example

Canon EOS 200D

6. more 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 afterwards to get them looking perfect.

Optics

1.sensor size

36 x 24mm

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

Best

Polaroid Snap

81.2 x 25.4mm

2.focus points

255

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.

Best

Canon EOS R

5655

3.has AF tracking
Zeiss ZX1

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.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

4.maximum light sensitivity

51200 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.

Best

Nikon D7500 + Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

1640000 ISO

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Zeiss ZX1

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.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

6.megapixels

37MP

Best

Panono Camera

108MP

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

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.

Best

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

2160 x 60fps

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Zeiss ZX1

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.

For example

Sony A6400 + Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS

3.Has timelapse function
Zeiss ZX1

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.

For example

Olympus OM-D E-M1X

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Zeiss ZX1

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

5.supports AVCHD format
Zeiss ZX1

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.

For example

Panasonic Lumix DC-S1

6.has a 24p cinema mode
Zeiss ZX1

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

For example

Olympus OM-D E-M1X

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Zeiss ZX1

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

2.has a microphone in
Zeiss ZX1

A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
