Reasons For

10 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 70D is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4.2MP higher than the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (16MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

4.1MP more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 70D is a 20.9MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP more than the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (16.8MP).
