Pixel in photo camera questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I have 2 question about pixels in photo cameras.

1-) If a person has a 1920x1080p screen with a total of 2,073,600 pixels in his screen, than would having a camera with 10 million pixels capibility wouldn't do anything extra right? In other words if the same camera with same specs but with only 5 million pixel capability will give the same picture quality right?

2-) If a picture is taken with again a 5 million pixel photo machine, the picture would look better in 1440p rather than a 1080p monitor I assume? But if a camera with just 2 million pixel capability would look the same in 1080p and 1440p?

I hope I am not confusing anyone.

(1) No it would not make a difference but if you wanted to crop large area's it would help.

(2) the difference would be the same difference as anything is on a 1080p vs 1440p monitor, and finally yes it would look pretty much the same assuming the screens are exactly the same apart from the resolution.

Thank you for the answer. I can't believe I forgot about this thread that I started. Sorry about that.
