Ques. Does the clarity of a photo clicked by a camera depend only on the value of MegaPixels?? Can a photo clicked by 2 MP camera be better than that clicked by a 3 MP camera??


Ans. More MegaPixels means more detail in the photo...but yes a photo clicked by a 2 MP camera be better than that clicked by a 3MP camera when the 2MP camera has "autofocus" feature in it because it will specifically focus on the object or the person that needs to be captured. Autofocus is a feature present in various high end phones and enhances the picture quality of the photo. But in rest other cases higher the megapixels higher the quality of output....

  1. To add to it the quality of the photo also depends on the software implementation part apart from hardware. The amount of compression done on the image the amount of noise reduced in the image all go to decide the quality of the image.
