I will just do some math (I will avoid all the sharpness of the lens and noise things aside). 12 Mpx = 2829 x 4243 px 24 Mpx = 4000 x 6000 px If I divide 4000/2829 I get a 1.414 ratio This means If I crop a photo, taken with a 50mm lens on a 24Mpx camera to a size equivalent of a 12Mpx photo (in pixels) will look as If I had photographed that with a 70mm ...


More "reach" with the same lens is "achieved" with a smaller sensor (DX), which is simply a crop, but it has to be enlarged more, which is a telephoto effect ("reach"). You can easily see this in your editor, just zoom any image larger, which shows as a crop, which is enlarged more. Same visual effect as zooming with a telephoto lens (except lens zoom could ...


It will give you some cropping room - if you use the same lens and a couple of steps back. If you're already stood against the back wall of your studio then more pixels won't help you. 12-24Mp also isn't as big a jump as you might first think. If you're using the extra pixels as a lever to get someone to break out their wallet then you might have to try ...


Yes, and that is the maybe the major advantage of high-resoluton sensors, for typical print sizes. You can crop the image and still get an image with reasonable detail. That said, the actual resolution of the image depends on the quality of the lens, too. Only quite high-end lenses will actually make good use of a 24MP sensor. if you look at a lens ...


Well, it's four years now and as we all know, digital sensors are being packed with way much more photosites than ever. With today's technology, in a given format size, a digital sensor is far much better than film in terms of noise and resolution. Please notice the "given format size." I have scanned film negatives and I find that my Nikon D5500 (24MP) ...
