Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D7200 has a megapixel of 24.2MP, but the Canon EOS 7D is only a 19MP digital camera (5.2MP 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.

0.2" larger display diagonal Edit
Nikon D7200 is 3.2" screen, but the Canon EOS 7D is only a 3" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller). Read more
