1 “Better Cameras Always Have More Megapixels”
The idea that more megapixels is better in a camera is a myth that has been spread by marketers for spec-hungry buyers. Megapixels tell you how sensitive your camera’s sensor is and matter if you’re trying to print physical copies (more pixels per inch mean more detailed prints). But more megapixels can also just give you poor photos that are composed of more pixels.
For sharp and vibrant photos, it’s far more important to have a good lens, light sensor, and image processing software. It means that smartphone cameras with fewer megapixels might give you better photos, which is the case more often than you might think.
