9 Reasons For
53% higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 50.6MP digital camera. That's 26.4MP higher than the Nikon D3300 (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.
