How much resolution do I need in a digital camera?

April 11th, 2005 · No Comments

It depends. Are you going to view images on a computer monitor? If so you will only need 1024 x 768 or about 3/4 of a Megapixel. Are you going to print the images? If so, how big and at what resolution. To print an 8×10 at a good resolution, you will need at least 3 Megapixels. Fortunately, most all digital cameras today have resolution at this level. What if your camera has more than three megapixels? You may want to dial back the resolution to make the files smaller and more managable.
