Reasons For

6 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a megapixel of 20.2MP, however the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 is only a 16MP digital camera (4.2MP 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.
