6 Reasons For
56% higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 36.3MP digital camera. That's 20MP higher than the Fujifilm X-T1 (36.3MP). Read more

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.

55% more total megapixel count Edit
