Camera with more megapixels can create a photos with greater details. In general, more megapixels mean larger image dimensions and bigger file size.

One megapixel is 1 million pixels. To get the number of megapixels, you have to multiply image width and height. For example image resolution 8000 pixels x 6000 pixels = 48 megapixels.

But the number of camera's megapixels is not the only factor, that affects the quality of taken photos.

The good camera also have:
  • Quality sensor and lens
  • Good image stabilization
  • Effective image compression

If the image compression level is set too high, the photo quality is decreasing.
