Reasons For

8 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 350 HS is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4.2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (16MP). Read more

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.
