Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon D7200 is a 24.2MPMP digital camera. That's 7.92MP higher than the Pentax K-50 (16.28MPMP). 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.
