"Mega-" is generally the prefix applied to a unit of measure, to multiply that unit by one million. Therefore a Megapixel is 1,000,000 pixels.

Edit: there are exactly 1,048,576 pixels in 1 megapixel !

A megapixel is 1 million pixels

2.1 Million pixels will be in an image taken by a 2.1 megapixel camera

Megapixel is like megabite. Megabite has 1 000 000 bytes so megapixel has 1000 000 pixels. Mega refers to 10^6

MegaPixel means 1,000,000 pixels. You probably haven't phrased your question in a manner to get a better answer.

yup, a megapixel is one million pixels. Eg. an eighteen point one megapixel camera can take a photo which is made up of 18100000 single colored dots called pixels.

5 mega pixels for the Ipod touch 4g.

one megapixel is a million pixels, so 9.2 mega pixels would be 9.2 million pixels, or 9,200,000 pixels.

There are 1 million pixels in 1 megapixel so 1200pixels is 0.0012 megapixels.

Megapixels are the count of how many pixels there are, which determines the "graunlarity" of photos.

It's got a simple 2 megapixel camera.

The prefix M (mega) is equivalent to 10^6 (one million).1 megapixel = 1*10^6 = 1000000 pixels800000 pixels = 800000/10^6 = 0.8 megapixels

It depends on the resolution. For example a resolution of 1220x960 would have 1,171,200 pixels or 1.1 megapixel. You take the height (1220) times the length (960.) If referring to an image, you can say it is a 1220 by 960 or a 1.1 megapixel image.

D1 is video resolution. D1 is 720x480 pixels (NTSC) or 720x576 pixels (PAL). The D1 resolution corresponds to a maximum of 414,720 pixels or 0.4 megapixel.

The oldest digital camera had enough resolution for a website banner. If the banner is to be 500 pixels across by 100 pixels down, the total pixels would be 500x100 or 5000 pixels. 1 Megapixel/5000pixels = .2 MP (that's POINT 2 Megapixels!).

The camera will take a photo that contains 3,200,000 pixels (mega=million). For example, a photo that is 2048 pixels wide and 1562 pixels tall will be 3.2 MP.

If you mean bigger the 1 megapixel is bigger. If you needed a bigger image for printing or to be shown on a bigger screen for example. If you needed a smaller image (for instance) the 68000 pixels may suit your purpose better.

A megapixel is one million pixels. A pixel is a picture element. Like graphics displayed on a television or computer monitor, digital photos are made from millions of tiny colored dots, or pixels. The more pixels used to produce a photo, the less "grainy" it will appear and the better any enlargements made from it will be. A 6-megapixel camera can produce standard 4 x 6 photos at a remarkable 500 pixels per inch and 8 x 10 photos at 273 ppi. A megapixel (MP) is 1 million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays.

The iPhone 5 has a 8 Megapixel rear facing camera.

A megapixel (or mp) is one million pixels, which are tiny squares that make up the photograph. 8 megapixels and up is good quality for cameras these days.

1 Megapixel = 1,000,000 pixels so to find out how many megapixels, divide the number by 1,000,000: 54,000 / 1,000,000 = .054 megapixels or not very much at all, that's an image that is better suited for websites rather than printing.

3mp actually stands for 3 megapixels. Each megapixel is equivalent to a million pixels. Typically a three megapixel camera can support pictures with dimensions of 2000 x 1500 resolution.

SizeAn 8-megapixel picture is 3264 x 2448 pixels when taken at its full resolution. A 10-megapixel picture is 3872 x 2592 pixels when taken at its full resolution.EffectsAt 300 ppi (pixels per inch), which is the resolution typically required for magazines and print media, you can print an 8-megapixel picture 10.88-inches by 8.16-inches. You can print a 10-megapixel picture 12.91" x 8.64" at its highest resolution.

Pixels is a measure of the image size, each pixel is a dot. This has nothing to do with quality, more megapixels DOES NOT mean better quality pictures. A 10 megapixel camera has 10 million pixels (or dots) per image.
