Reasons For

10 Reasons For
Moderately higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a megapixel count of 20.9MPMP, however the Samsung NX30 is only a 20.3MPMP digital camera (0.6MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Vastly smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a maximum aperture of 38, however the Samsung NX30 is only a 5.6 maximum aperture digital camera (32.4 bigger).
Seven diaphragm blades Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a seven diaphragm blades digital camera, whereas the Samsung NX30 only has two diaphragm blades.
Hugely higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a maximum ISO speed of 51,200, but the Samsung NX30 is only a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (26 lower).
0.04x higher lens magnification ratio Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a lens magnification ratio of 1xx, but the Samsung NX30 is only a 0.96xx lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.04x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Bigger eye relief Edit
Canon EOS 7D Mark II is 22mmmm Eye relief. That's 3.5mm bigger than the Samsung NX30 (18.5mmmm). Read more

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

98g lighter lens weight Edit
