Reasons For

5 Reasons For
59% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 50.6MP digital camera. That's 29.8MP higher than the Nikon D5 (20.8MP). 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.

60% more total megapixels Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 53MP digital camera. That's 31.67MP more than the Nikon D5 (21.33MP).
99x shorter flash sync-speed Edit

A lot lighter Edit
