Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Nikon D4S (16.2MP). 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.

12% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a display resolution (numeric) of 1,040,000 pixels. That's 119,000 pixels higher than the Nikon D4S (921,000 pixels).
A lot lighter Edit
