Reasons For

12 Reasons For
0.099999999999998MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L330 has a megapixel count of 20.2MP, but the Sony DSC-W810 is only a 20.1MP digital camera (0.099999999999998MP lower). 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.

0.080000000000002MP more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L330 has a total megapixel count of 20.48MP, however the Sony DSC-W810 is only a 20.4MP digital camera (0.080000000000002MP less).
