Whenever we go to buy a new phone with a camera, first thing we look for is mega pixel, I understand it is the number of pixels per inch of the image, megapixel is what determines the resolution of the image, and resolution is one the important factors to sharpness of the images.
Now my questions are:
What is the thing in DSLR which is equivalent to megapixels in phone cameras?
What should we look for first of all while buying a DSLR?
Also put some light on fps (frames per second) and how it is important and what are their implications on final image?
Help plz!September 12, 2012 at 1:43 pm #14451
Megapixels remain megapixels even for a DSLR. Megapixels define the resolution of the image, it is same for camera phones, compact cameras or DSLRs, but the range varies.
There are many things like shutter life span, maximum shutter speed, ISO range, etc but there are two things that will help you in picking the right gear: first is your budget and second is your level as a photographer. If you are just beginning, go in for any entry level DSLR. I think Nikon D3200 is a good option.
FPS or frames per second defines the camera’s ability to shoot multiple frames in continuous shooting mode. Higher the fps, higher is the number of shots captured per second. That shows the processing speed of the camera. You will basically need it while shooting action shots; because you cannot afford to miss the shot. I used it when I was trying to capture the water splash – dialed the shutter priority mode, chose the shutter-speed of 1/4000 sec (max that my camera allows), turned on the continuous shooting mode and yep, I was able to get a few good shots.

Thanks for the reply, however one more question arose in my mind, after shooting a scene, how do we calculate pixels in the image
