Image quality is one of the most important aspects to consider when purchasing a digital camera - if not the most important. Every photographer, no matter what experience level, wants to have those beautiful, sharp photos, but does higher resolution make the image quality better?
It is important to firstly understand what image resolution is. Image resolution describes the detail a photo or image holds. The higher the resolution – the better the detail within your photo. Resolution can be measured in a number of ways, however most typically via megapixels, and the more megixels you have the higher the image detail or resolution.
So, essentially, image quality based on higher resolution is very dependent on the photographers desired outcome. If you wish to have a a sharp and detailed image, then certainly, the higher the resolution the better the image quality. However, if you are quite an expressive or artistic photographer, you may feel that image quality is not necessarily a measure of the sharpness and detail of the picture – it may be, to you, that colour or richness defines the image quality.
It is also very dependent on your camera and its megapixels, meaning that the less megapixels your camera has the lower the resolution and therefore the image quality. This is often based heavily on the amount of money you spend on your camera – typically a more expensive camera will have more megapixels or higher resolution in general. At Kirk’s Cameras we can guide you as to which cameras have the best resolution for the best prices – so give us a call or come on in!
