Megapixel
One million pixels. Generally terminology used to describe digital cameras. Incidentally more megapixels does not necessarily mean more quality. There are a number of other factors that affect the quality of the system, the most significant being the quality of the lens in front of the sensor. The electronics cannot record a better image than the optics can produce. Also sensors with higher pixel density are more susceptible to noise and tend to have poorer low light performance. Therefore it is not uncommon for a point and shoot camera with fewer megapixels to have the same recordable image resolution as a higher megapixel but otherwise similar camera, but for the lower megapixel camera to have better low light and cleaner performance. Even professional and prosumer SLR digital cameras are reaching the point that the physical restrictions of the lens and light wavelengths limit resolution rather than the pixels in the sensor. Extra megapixels also means larger files taking up space on your computer.
