Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Slightly higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a 1,040,000 pixels display resolution digital camera, whereas the Samsung NX30 is only a 1,037,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (3,000 pixels lower).
0.04x higher magnification Edit
Canon EOS 7D Mark II is 1x lens magnification ratio, but the Samsung NX30 is only a 0.96x 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.

GPS (satellite) Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a GPS (satellite), however the Samsung NX30 does not have a GPS (satellite). Read more

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Three hundred and ten more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a digital camera that takes 670.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, whereas the Samsung NX30 only takes 360.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. 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.

Available from 13 shops
The more stores stock this digital camera, the greater competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
User reviews are a lot better
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has an average user review score of 100%, but the Samsung NX30 has an average rating of 88% (based on 19 reviews).
10 Reasons For
Moderately higher megapixel Edit
The Samsung NX30 has a megapixel of 20.3MP, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is only a 20.2MP digital camera (0.1MP 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.

Image stabilizer Edit
The Samsung NX30 has an image stabilizer, whereas the Canon EOS 7D Mark II does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

Slightly more total megapixels Edit
The Samsung NX30 has a total megapixels of 21.6MP, however the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is only a 20.9MP digital camera (0.7MP less).
60% smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Samsung NX30 is a 3.5 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 2.1 smaller than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (3.5).
One hundred and eighty-two more auto Focus (AF) pointss Edit
The number of auto Focus (AF) pointss on the Samsung NX30 is 247.00, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II only has 65.00 auto Focus (AF) pointss.
A lot higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
The Samsung NX30 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is only a 16,000 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 lower).
Touchscreen Edit
The Samsung NX30 has a touchscreen, whereas the Canon EOS 7D Mark II does not have a touchscreen.
Lighter Edit
The Samsung NX30 is a 375g digital camera. That's 535g lighter than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (375g). 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.

$819 cheaper
The Samsung NX30 is $819.41 cheaper than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
Fifteen more awards
The Samsung NX30 has 16 awards, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II has 1 award.
