Reasons For

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

HDMI Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS has an HDMI, however the Nikon D7200 does not have an HDMI. Read more

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

1.5mm bigger eye relief Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS is a 21mm Eye relief digital camera, whereas the Nikon D7200 is only a 19.5mm 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.
