comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
The listed resolution of '21 megapixels' references to the physical pixel count on your sensor. The 'true resolution' that Snapsort offers, trying to account for the fact that all 21 megapixels can't be capturing detail because they're too closely packed together.

@stanRogers - she's comparing two numbers, she references 'snapsort'...what else do you think it means?

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
@Morpho - None of snapsorts numbers should be the only factor in a buying decision. And generally these days, on the list of things to look for in a new camera, super high megapixels shouldn't be near the top for most people. We could debate the methodology behind snapsort's 'true resolution' and say "they're not taking this or that into account" but overall, they're probably in the realm of a good measure for this. So, if you're looking at two cameras and everything else is equal, but its a different 'true resolution', get the higher 'true resolution'.

comment What is Snapsort's true resolution?
The vast majority of this, while true, is completely irrelevant to the question at hand - which is how a particular company is doing a particular measure.

comment Are these photos ruined because of ISO?
'Ruined' doesn't have a technical definition for ISO noise, so its not a good fit for us. That said, they're totally fine unless you're pixel peeping. I wouldn't be upset with the ISO noise at all.

comment Why do I see this yellow color shift at high ISOs and fast shutter speeds?
Definitely not a sensor defect - its clearly the fluorescent effect. Its not an ISO effect, the high ISO is simply allowing you to use faster shutter speeds which puts you in range of catching the flicker. Stop your lens down more and shoot it at f/11, ISO6400, 1/50.

comment How to handle publicly sharing family photos (especially kids) online?
@dpollit - Yup, I didn't think it was specific to Google - just pointing out its an option.

comment Photography in sunlight
I'm trying to decode your question. I believe you're asking what to do about shooting with either the model's eyes squinting from the sun, or that turning away from the sun causes too much shadow?

comment Specs to look for in my first camera
I would suggest you not readily assume to go Nikon or Canon - there are great options with other popular brands. See this question

comment Specs to look for in my first camera
The secondhand market maybe large for those, but there's still a huge wealth of secondhand stuff for Pentax, Olympus, and Sony - I wouldn't discount those for that reason.

comment How do you develop 'creative taste' in order to take a good photo?
You're simply supposed to take more squirrel pictures ;)
