14 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Pentax K-3 is a 24.35MP digital camera. That's 6.35MP higher than the Canon EOS 7D (18MP).

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.

Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Pentax K-3 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 51,200. That's 38,400 higher than the Canon EOS 7D (12,800).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
7% Larger Display Diagonal
The Pentax K-3 is a 3.2" screen digital camera. That's 0.2" larger than the Canon EOS 7D (3").

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Higher Display Resolution
The Pentax K-3 is a 1,037,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 117,000 pixels higher than the Canon EOS 7D (920,000 pixels).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
GPS (satellite)
The Pentax K-3 has a GPS (satellite), whereas the Canon EOS 7D does not have a GPS (satellite).

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.

Lighter
