Reasons For

8 Reasons For
53% higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS is a 50.6MPMP digital camera. That's 26.4MP higher than the Nikon D7200 (24.2MPMP). 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.

54% more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS is a 53MPMP digital camera. That's 28.28MP more than the Nikon D7200 (24.72MPMP).
61 auto focus points Edit
The number of auto focus points on the Canon EOS 5DS is 61, but the Nikon D7200 only has 51 auto focus points.
1.5mm bigger eye relief Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS is a 21mmmm Eye relief digital camera, whereas the Nikon D7200 is only a 19.5mmmm Eye relief digital camera (1.5mm smaller). 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.

5x lighter Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS has a weight of 116.4gg, however the Nikon D7200 is a 675gg digital camera (558.6g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

700 shots shots per battery charge Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS takes 700 shots shots per battery charge, however the Nikon D7200 only takes 1,110 shots shot per battery charge. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.
