One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

2.5 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Canon PowerShot N2 is a 9 maximum aperture digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is only a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera (2.5 bigger).
14% smaller minimum aperture number Edit
