Megapixel Reality Check!

If you have ever wondered about Megapixels and sensor size (e.g. does a 10 Megapixel Point-and-Shoot give the same result as a 10MP APS-C, and is it worth the money) then read the attached article.

The editor of Photo Review Australia (, David O'Sullivan, kindly gave permission to reproduce this article, Busting The Megapixel Myth by Margaret Brown, on this forum.

It is well worth reading...
