(The Gist of Science Reporter) MP Cameras
MP or Megapixel (one million pixels) is the measurement of the imaging
sensing capacity of a camera. Pixel standing for Picture Element is the basic
unit of programmable colour on an electronic display. The higher the number of
pixels, the better is the resolution of the image. For example, a 3 MP camera
covers an area nine times as large as covered by a one VGA camera. 1.3 MP camera
has a scanning area of 1280 x 960 pixels.
