The larger the Megapixels the better the image?
The first thing you hear about when you are looking at a camera is how many Megapixels it has?
So you’d think that Megapixels are very important when it comes to choosing a camera and taking photographs?
And the more you have the better…
But is there more to it than that?
Yes there is….
Megapixels are only part of what is involved in image quality. The image sensor, processor, metering and lenses are all part of image quality.
Megapixels and how many there are determine the size of the image.
The more Megapixels there are the larger you can print your image.
With all the new very large Megapixel cameras that are coming out it’s good to understand what Megapixels are. And also to realise what that means – the more Megapixels the larger the image file size.
So the more storage space you will need!
Whether that’s memory cards, hard drives or the Cloud!
What is for certain is that technology is moving on a pace, and keeping up with it can be a full time job….
