|Camera Megapixel: All the Facts You'll Ever Need to Know (Via:TIH)|
When buying mobiles and cameras, we often look at megapixels and it is a common concept that the higher the megapixel, the better the photo and video will be, but in reality it is not.
Many times you must have seen that the mega pixel of a camera is less but its photo is quite good compared to the higher megapixel camera. This simply means that the phone or camera has many other features that increase the quality of photos and videos even when there are less megapixels. Let's know about it in detail.
When Was Camera Invented?
In 1816, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, a Frenchman, created the first camera. According to Beaumont Newhall's "The History of Photography," he wrote letters to his brother detailing the creation of the camera.
His prototype was used to create the first image, which was taken in 1826 and showed the view from his window at his residence in Le Gras, France. Niépce worked on the picture for at least eight hours.
What Are Camera Megapixel (MP)?
- Megapixel's full form is Million Pixel.
- Megapixel's Acronym is MP.
- 1 megapixel = 1 million pixels (1 megapixel = 1 Million Pixel)
- 1 million pixels = 1 million pixels (1 Million Pixel = 10 Lakhs Pixel)
What Is A Pixel?
Pixels are small squares that are held together like pieces of a puzzle or mosaic to create your photos. In common language, it can also be said that a dot or a dot is a pixel.
With the help of the picture given below, you can easily understand how much and what a pixel is.
The squares you see in this picture are pixels. These white and the blue squares are the unit of a picture. When you enlarge or zoom a photo or picture, it will look something like this.
The photo that is taken with the camera or mobile camera is as much as the resolution of the photo, while it shows the megapixel. For example, if there is a photo of 2580 × 2048 pixels, then your camera is of 5 megapixels.
If you want to find the difference between a 5 megapixel and a 13 megapixel camera, then take one photo each from both cameras and see that photo in Zoom (in). You will know that a photo taken with 5 megapixels starts bursting or blurry after zooming a bit. While zooming the same at 13 pixels, the photo will look quite good.
Along with the megapixel of the camera, the image sensor inside the camera also has great importance. Despite having a similar megapixel, if the image sensor is small or big, then the quality of the image or photo will vary.
This is the reason that 24 megapixel cameras take better quality photos than 24 megapixel mobile cameras because the image sensor of the camera is larger than the image sensor of the mobile.
