20.1MP higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D800E has a megapixel of 36.3MP, however the Nikon D4S is only a 16.2MP digital camera (20.1MP 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.

20.2MP more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon D800E has a total megapixels of 36.8MP, whereas the Nikon D4S is only a 16.6MP digital camera (20.2MP less).
100 smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Nikon D800E is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon D4S is a 200 minimum ISO speed digital camera (100 bigger).
32% lighter Edit
