Design

1.Weather-sealed (splashproof)
?

The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes. Show more

For example

Leica M-E (Typ 240)

Olympus PEN E-PL10
2.Has a built-in focus motor
?

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

Sony a7R IV

Olympus PEN E-PL10
3.Has a flip-out screen
?

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

For example

Fujifilm X-Pro3

Olympus PEN E-PL10
4.Is dustproof and water-resistant
?

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. Show more

5.Has a hot shoe
?

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Olympus PEN E-PL10
6.has an optical viewfinder
?

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

For example

Leica M-E (Typ 240)

Optics

1.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.

2.has AF tracking
?

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.

Olympus PEN E-PL10
3.maximum light sensitivity
?

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.
