8 Reasons For
20% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 20MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS (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.
