Reasons For

3 Reasons For

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.

More total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6600 is a 16.79MP digital camera. That's 3.99MP more than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.8MP).
