It really isn’t any secret that you’ll probably have to deal with a lot of marketing phraseology whenever you make an electronics purchase these days,perhaps the most evident area for this is digital cameras.Even if you’re looking at a standard model or even a camera is built into a smartphone the first thing your average retailers gonna try to get you to notice is how many mega-pixels it has this really the best way to evaluate the quality of the photo you’ll end up getting.
To answer it would help to know what a mega-pixel actually is its measure of resolution that tell you how many solid colored dots are pixels make up the image, 1 mega-pixel equals a million pixels which may sound like a lot but remember that a standard 1080p computer monitor can display a little over 2 mega-pixels and many computer great digital cameras take pictures containing eight ten or even more mega-pixels
So What’s actually Mega-pixels referring to?
The biggest advantage to pick up a camera that can capture more mega-pixels is scaling if you’re trying to create large prints of your photos or just trying to zoom in on them in your favorite image editing program for post-processing higher pixel density means that your image will retain more sharpness increasing magnification or blowing it up to stick it on a poster because of this the mega-pixel count mattered a lot in the early days of photography when cameras having on a single mega-pixel were common and models that could capture high-resolution images were tremendously helpful if you want to print anything larger than a four by six .

So What should you be looking for ?
Nowadays though with camera supporting many times more mega-pixels being the norm, the biggest concern for novice photographers isn’t whether or not the picture will scale well rather it’s things like noise inaccurate color and poor low-light performance that are still things to watch out for even on cameras that advertise more mega-pixels than the Hubble freaking’ telescope as the number of pixels in an image has nothing to do with those important aspects of picture quality.
okay we get it more mega-pixels is the modern-day equivalent to blast processing but what should we pay attention to when we’re buying a new camera for starters.
