Here are a few great enteries that have already been entered in Photo Challenge: My Favorite Camera Feature:
Like Father Like Daughter by Stephanie Hammer
"I am a sucker for natural lighting, particularly in lower volumes aim a very particular way. The result is beautiful but it present a challenge. I love that my camera allows me to lower my ISO and let in that beautiful, natural light without using a flash and with minimal graininess."
Walking Away by Lori D'Ambrosio
"'My favorite feature on my Canon 50D is the self timing setting/it allows me to use myself as a figure in the photo. I set up my camera on a tri-pod and use a slow shutter speed/1/6th of a second to get a slight sense of movement/stop down the ISO 1 stop/use the lowest ISO (100), set the aperture on 16 or 22 and set the white balance on clouds. I always go out at sunrise for the best light."
Loooong Exposure Magical Waterfalls by Forest Wander
"My favorite feature of my SLR camera is taking loooong exposure water pictures. I always wondered how photographers made the water look so smoooth and once I learned how, it became my passion to hike and find waterfalls and streams to get scenic long exposures."
Look Mommy! by Jeannine St-Amour
"If it wasn't of the 12 X zoom on my point and shoot camera, I would have never been able to capture this precious moment which I absolutely adore. It is a feature I use all the time especially when doing wildlife photography."
