The Difference Between Pixels and Mega Pixels

If you have ever been in a store to buy digital cameras, you have probably seen a huge sticker next to the camera saying something about mega pixels. All you know is that the higher the number the better the quality, but why? Lets go over exactly was pixels and mega pixels are and how they work.

Digital cameras produce pictures that are made up of lots of little dots called pixels. If you have ever messed around in a paint program on your computer you probably noticed that when you try to paint a squiggly line it looks very blocky. This is because the resolution of your painting is very low. The larger amount of pixels equals greater quality and smoother lines because its packing more pixels into a much smaller space. A mega pixel is one million pixels. The average mega pixel range of cameras found at the store range between 1 -11 mega pixels.

Many people when in search to buy digital cameras ask “How many mega pixels is enough? ” We would suggest getting a camera with a minimum mega pixel rating at 5 mega pixels. This way your prints will look excellent without looking blurred. Pictures will also look amazing on the computer at this rating and allow you to do a lot of specific tweaking to the pictures.

An obvious method to buy digital cameras is to go for the digital camera with the highest mega pixels. This method can also break the bank. Keep in mind that some of the more high quality cameras actually take better pictures and don’t need as many mega pixels. Brands like Canon and Nokia have state of the art technology and are much better at capturing color which means that the pictures will look just as good as a camera that has a bit of a higher mega pixel rating.

The higher the mega pixel of the camera usually means that the digital camera has many other features as well. Rarely do you find a 10 mega pixel camera that only takes pictures. Most digital cameras of today also can take High definition video and have all kinds of digital filters and zooming capabilities. Take this into account when you are pricing cameras that fit your budget. Like we mentioned before, brands make a big difference. Quality brands use quality lenses, image sensors, color sensors, and give you a much more raw looking image. Most of these upper end cameras have optical zoom instead of digital zoom. The reason for this is that digital zoom often pix-elates the pictures and makes them look fuzzy. Vacationers visit the Caribbean every year to experience a true tropical getaway. Every island has its own unique history, heritage and culture, but the one thing all the islands have in common is their natural beauty, surrounded by vivid blue ocean waters, pristine beaches and breathtaking tropical landscapes. Perhaps one of the ultimate ways to experience the diversity of the Caribbean is by taking an island-hopping golf vacation aboard a luxury mega yacht charter. Using Antigua as a jumping-off point, golfers can choose to either travel north to Anguilla or south to the Grenadines. Tim Nelson will be happy to assist in planning a unique Caribbean adventure.

From Anguilla to the Grenadines, the Caribbean has become known for its championship golf courses. Although you can bring your own clubs and equipment, most courses have everything you will need, including lessons and full service golf shops. Tee times should be made in advance, especially at the more popular, upscale courses. Plan on spending anywhere from US$45 to well over US$200 per round depending on the location and course. Following are some unique island golfing options.

The low coral island of Anguilla sits at the top of the Leeward Island chain. It is a serene, remote place of magnificent soft, undeveloped, dazzlingly white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and some exclusive hotels and estates all surrounded by the most turquoise blue sea possible. There are no towns- just a scattering of houses and business places. The interior is dry, dusty and covered in scrubby vegetation. The attraction for the luxury mega yacht charterer is the coast and the pure relaxation and escapism that come from the island’s seclusion as well as the friendliness of its people.
