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?
|(we are talking about this)|
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.
- what kind of image sensor the camera has
even the speed of your camera CPUs are important to consider as well but just remember that not even the most expensive DSLR out there will make your horrible near selfies look any better things looking better.
of course other factors like has this has a thing that turns the light that passes through the lens into an actual photo generally speaking larger sensors are better as the pixels on them will be larger than the smaller sensor of the same resolution meaning more light can reach each pixel often resulting in a crispy image the largest centers are typically 35 millimeters you know like the film ones an old-school cameras and they go down in both size and price from there also pay attention to the cameras dynamic range which is a measure of how well the camera can capture light and dark portions of an image pictures taken on a camera with poor dynamic range will cause brain areas to look washed out and dim areas to look like black splotches dynamic range is commonly expressed in terms of tops with more stops translating to your camera being more versatile in different lighting conditions specs.
