What is a Megapixel in a Camera?

    Whenever we go to buy a camera or talk
about a phone camera, we definitely say about the megapixel for once. Usually, our idea is that, if the megapixel number goes higher, the camera will be
better. But really so? And what is this megapixel? What exactly it is needed

What is Megapixel?

    Megapixel is actually another
name for “million pixels”. That means 1 megapixel = 1 million pixels.
That means if a phone has a 1-megapixel camera, and if that camera makes a
picture, then that image will be created with 1 million pixels. But this time
another question comes up is what a pixel is? Each camera has lenses and a
sensor. The lens is placed on the front and the sensor is placed at the back of the
lens. When the light goes through the lens and falls on the sensor, the image
is created. Just as it is in our eyes. And this sensor of the camera is made up
of many small dots whose task is to collect the light coming in through the
lens and take a picture with it. These little dots are called pixels. If
the pixel count increases, the image quality improves. This does not mean that
the image quality will be better every time you increase the pixel count. As
the pixel size increases, the size of the pixel should increase, the size of
the sensor also be increased, as well as we should use advanced lenses.

    But how do these 1 million
counts? If we have a 1-megapixel sensor, then the sensor has 1152 pixels
horizontally and 864 pixels vertically. And when they are counted to calculate
the total number of pixels in the whole sensor, the number comes to about 1
million. Note, that the horizontal and vertical ratio of the pixel is 4:3. In this
way, the number of pixels is increased from 1 megapixel to 2 megapixels, 2
megapixels to 3 megapixels, 5, 8, 12, 16, 20, in certain proportion.

   As the resolution increases, the
number of pixels also increases. But how effective is it?
say we have two phones A and B. 5 megapixel camera on A phone and an 8-megapixel camera on B phone. But the size of their camera sensor is the same. That means
we have more pixels in one place. As a result, the size of the pixel on the 8-megapixel camera was less than the size of the pixel on the 5-megapixel camera. As a
result, the quality of the picture did not increase, but the ability to receive
light was reduced.

    Now if we have a phone with a 12-megapixel camera and on the other side we have a DSLR camera with a 12-megapixel camera, then the DSLR camera image will be much better because there
is a large sensor. Something similar happens on mobile phones. But here the
sensor size of every mobile phone is almost the same. So here the quality of
the image is adjusted by reducing or increasing the resolution.

    Hopefully, you understand exactly
what the megapixel is and how it’s used.
