most megapixel camera

In addition to having a 36.3 MP sensor, this camera boasts a 51- point AF system with 15 Cross Type AF sensors, an ISO range of 100 to 6,400 (expanded up to 25,600), full resolution frame rate up to 4 fps and full HD video recording.
The Nikon D800 is one of Nikon’s top-of-the-line DSLRs, and it can claim the honor of being the highest megapixel camera among DSLRs with interchangeable lenses and full-frame sensors.

After 8 years of construction, the camera was deployed at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile to unlock secrets of the universe by photographing broad patches of the night sky.
Back in September, we shared the first photos snapped by the world’s largest and most powerful digital camera: the 570-megapixel Dark Energy Camera located on a mountaintop in Chile.
Reuters recently paid a visit to the massive astro-camera and the scientists behind it, and created the short 2-minute piece above that offers a closer look at the unique piece of camera equipment.

If the Nikon answer to this question is correct in reference to quality being the same between the D7000 and D800 in crop mode, we are in a world of hurt.
Every Nikon DSLR camera uses an optical low pass filter (OLPF) in front of its sensor to slightly blur the image at a pixel level in order to reduce the occurrence of false colors and moiré that can appear when shooting repetitive and/or fine patterns.
Since I do not have a camera like the D7000, I am not exactly sure what you are referring to with “U1” & “U2.” However, from what you are describing, I think it is what Nikon refers to as” Shooting Menu Banks.” The user’s manual for the D800 describes these on pages 269 and 270.
The example they showed employs that shutter speed, and logically it might make sense, but I get the feeling (from the NIkon team’s answer as well) it is an issue with the camera and your technique has to be flawless.
My wish and advice for Nikon is to improve this camera by removing the ability to do video and concentrate all the electronics and image processing for still photos and maybe to increase the ability to shoot and focus a bit faster.
The other place it might become noticeable is when cropping…. A 6mp image from a D70 might very well show less camera motion induced blur than a 6mp crop from a D800.
Unfortunately the Nikon answer simply re-creates the uncertainty by seeming to say that blur will be amplified by this camera because of its high detail.
Nikon has a published list of recommended lenses and DxOMark has done some very comprehensive testing to identify the best lenses in terms of image quality to match up with a D800.
If you take a photo with a D800 and shrink the image down to 16mp or 12mp or whatever, the amount of blur would be the same as if the image was taken with a lower resolution camera.
You already invest too many dollars on a camera to buy any lens, if you dont have lens for nikon, and you want a daily use lens, I’ll go with the new 24-85mm VR F3.5-4.5, it will do the job and would give you a nice range for creativity, and the iso would help you on low ligth situations.
Meet the Nikon D800, a 36.3 megapixel FX-format HD-SLR for professional photographers who require end results of the highest quality, who demand superior performance, speed, handling and a fully integrated imaging system.
I own a D7000 and I was wondering if I should expect a noticeable or significant image quality difference with the D800? I shoot a lot of wildlife with a Sigma 150-500 and comparing the tech specs from the D7000/D800 in DX mode, I see that the pixel rating is slightly better with the D7000.
Other Nikon staff states that the D800 image quality is on par with the D700.

You see, as camera makers churned out point-and-shoot cameras year after year in their heydays, they tried to cram as many pixels as they could onto a small sensor by making pixels smaller, but small sensors with small pixels can only do much for photo quality (image noise becomes a problem for small sensors as the resolution increases), despite the number of pixels.
Reagan’s source predicts Canon has plans to announce it sometime this year, but could it also set off a whole new megapixel race between camera makers? And, do we really need that many pixels? The problem with megapixels is that it has a tricky history, but a new megapixel race is highly unlikely.
“Digital resolution, expressed as the number of pixels or megapixels in the image (i.e., pixel count), is an important component of total image quality,” Chuck Westfall, who’s the technical advisor for the Professional Engineering & Solutions Division at Canon U.S.A., explained to us.
While pros might such a high-end camera (the 75-megapixel Canon DSLR is rumored to also include a new processor to handle the high resolution and frame rates, among other upgrades), they, too, acknowledge the caveats, and that it would require fulfilling other factors besides a high megapixel count.
In addition to the high megapixel count in the Lumia 1020, Nokia also emphasizes the importance of the larger sensor (larger than most in and even the cheapest point-and-shoots), Xenon flash, mechanical shutter, and oversampling technology (which uses all those pixels to create a smaller but higher quality 5-megapixel image).
“The bottom line: Megapixels are only one of many factors to consider when evaluating image quality,” Westfall said, citing sharpness, noise, dynamic range, contrast, tonal gradation, color accuracy, exposure accuracy, distortion, vignetting, lens flare, moiré, and rolling shutter artifacts as some of the other factors that affect image quality.
Many digital camera owners are starting to become aware that megapixels alone do not determine the overall picture quality of a camera, but there are still a lot of consumers who aren’t aware of this, simply because the notion about having more megapixels never left their heads.

To give you a glance of these devices which we have lined up, they are: Nokia Lumia 1020, Sony Xperia Z1, Samsung Galaxy s4 zoom, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Lenovo K900, LG Optimus G Pro and more.
Just recently, latest devices like Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z1 and LG G2 have been launched in India.
However, since the popularity of photo sharing featuring social networking sites have increased, number of devices with high imaging technology have relatively grown throughout the world.
Moreover, one handset worth mentioning comes from Nokia called Lumia 1020 which features a massive 41MP rear camera.

Although the cameras in the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 offer more features, the 5’s camera remains all-around great, thanks to its upgraded optics, 8-megapixel sensor, and best-in-class HDR mode.
%displayPrice% at %seller% The slightly older Lumia 920, while heavier than the Lumia 928, packs almost the same exact camera minus a few improvements in low-light performance.
For example, the Nokia Lumia 928 sports an 8.7-megapixel camera sensor, but it shoots photos better than several 13- and 16-megapixel camera phones we’ve tested.
The phone’s 13-megapixel camera stands out the most for its bevy of special modes, including Dual Shot, which uses both the rear and front-facing cameras to insert your own face into a photo.

The HX-1 offers an astounding 5 Mega Pixel resolution at 2000 fps and features user adjustable frame rate / resolution settings up to 1,300,000 frames per second! With memory storage available up to 128GB, the HX-1 also offers an optional high density, non-volatile, memory magazine – HD-Mag.

"If you doubled the number of megapixels on a camera’s sensor, you’d halve the amount of light that each pixel would have to measure, which means even more noise." Even worse.
Still, as you may have noted (at least in Nikon's implementation), it delivers quite impressive performance for its pixel size – in good light comparable detail 'per pixel' to the 'old' 16MP sensor, and not too far behind at higher sensitivities resulting in a net win for detail capture.
It’s a conventional 1/3 inch size, but because each pixel has more light to measure, its noise levels are significantly lower than from sensors with more densely packed pixels.
"If you doubled the number of megapixels on a camera’s sensor, you’d halve the amount of light that each pixel would have to measure, which means even more noise", argument is not valid.
If you doubled the number of megapixels on a camera’s sensor, you’d halve the amount of light that each pixel would have to measure, which means even more noise.
but 160 MPix looks a good number what we need, where I expect the "MP war" ends for mass market cameras for resolution.
If both cameras have the same resolution, each pixel on the smartphone’s sensor has a tiny amount of light to measure.
10 sharp megapixels is enough for prints of just about any size, provided you're interested in the overall image and don't press your nose against the paper for maximum detail in one specific part of a large print.
Isn't it strange that with so many improvements in the camera capabilities of these cell phones, I still see many people walking around in their front yards, driveways, and streets trying to pick up a signal to talk on their phone? Wouldn't it be easier to build cell phones into regular cameras? You'd still have people trying to get a signal, but at least they wouldn't have to worry so much about their picture taking capabilities.
This is caused by inaccuracies in the measurements for each pixel, and it takes the form of a speckled graininess across the image." Uh…no. Most of the noise is in the light itself, even if it were measured perfectly.
when we resize images of different pixel counts to a common resolution for comparison, the output better be of 0.7 or less pixels than the lowest to take out the effect of Bayer filters (or the HTC One will look less sharp which is a Bayer issue, not something we want to see here).
The problem with cameras in cell phones is not the MPs, but the size of the sensor and the folks who use them and wouldn't know good IQ if it slapped them in the face.
Most full frame cameras actually have much larger pixels than APS-C, since the D800 is an outlier when it comes to pixel count in consumer cameras.
I don't care if the rest part be displayed at much lower resolution (for "beautiful bokeh") but I think 8 MPix should be needed for facial (200-300 cm2 projected) better over 10 MPix because our eyes are really good at facial details.
DxOMark gives D800 a low light ISO of 2.445 times that of D7000, which is slightly larger than 2.347 sensor area ratio and this should be the difference made by "new generation technology".

(Of course, when looking at models from different manufacturers or even from different lines by the same manufacturer, neither megapixels nor price are likely to give much idea of how the comparative features stack up.) Most readers will be best served by simply comparing models that fit within their budget, looking for the features they’re interested in, and then using our reviews and sample pictures to pick out the ones that perform the best and take the best-looking photos.
These days (this is being written in mid-2007), it’s hard to find a digital camera with fewer than 6 megapixels, and some consumer models have sensors as large as 12 (!) megapixels, and I’ve no doubt we’ll see even higher resolutions in the years to come.
The one thing that can be said about higher megapixel numbers on cameras is that, within a given model line, you’ll tend to find more advanced capabilities and snazzy features on the higher-end models, which generally also sport the higher-resolution sensors.
Image noise and high ISO (high light sensitivity settings) are a whole other topic, more than we can go into in this short note, but suffice to say that cramming more pixels on the same size chip adds little in the way of usable resolution, and makes it harder to get clean-looking images when shooting under dim lighting.

Most importantly, the two compact system cameras share the same impressive 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, which produces image quality superior to most APS-C-sensor-based digital SLRs, but in arguably more attractive camera body designs.
This bridge camera’s relatively small 1/2.3-inch imaging sensor means its image quality won’t rival the output of a DSLR or premium compact — especially in low light — but it’s definitely capable of capturing photos few other cameras can.
Pairing the compact, lightweight body of a mirrorless camera with the performance and image quality of a digital SLR, the Canon SL1 DSLR provides, in many ways, the best of both worlds.
Its 16-megapixel sensor gives the Canon 1D Mark IV considerably more pixels than its predecessor, and the dual DIGIC 4 processors allow the camera to retain the 10 frame-per-second capture speed as well as employ better anti-noise processing for greater image quality at higher ISOs.
Nikon has also brought the D5100’s imaging pipeline up to date, and that’s good news, because it’s based around the same 16.2 megapixel image sensor and image processing algorithms used in the popular D7000 prosumer SLR, bringing much the same image quality to a significantly more affordable camera.
This amazing compact system camera offers image quality to rival a medium format design, yet in a body that can fit in a coat pocket, even with a lens attached.
Making quite a leap for compact system cameras both in terms of image quality and camera control, the Sony NEX-7 really impressed us.
With the E-M1’s powerful image processor, a similar AA-filterless sensor and the E-M5’s compact design, the E-M10 manages to bring impressive class-leading image quality, dynamic range, and excellent high ISO performance in a lightweight design down to an entry-level price point.
When we reviewed Sony’s A7R mirrorless camera, we were thrilled by its combination of a full-frame image sensor and a compact body.
The camera may not wow enthusiasts looking for significantly better still image quality, but the 70D marks a serious step up for photographers wanting pro-level video performance and quality.
Featuring a new 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor and one of the deepest feature sets we’ve ever seen on a mirrorless compact system camera, the Panasonic GH3 outshines its predecessor, the GH2, by delivering better still images as well as stunning, pro-level video.
With the Alpha SLT-A77, Sony makes a bold step into pro camera territory by combining an extremely high-res 24 megapixel APS-C image sensor, a speedy Bionz image processor, and its phase detect-friendly Translucent Mirror design.

The Dark Energy Survey (DES) collaboration has announced that the camera, which took eight years to build by scientists on three continents, has achieved its first light.
"The achievement of first light through the Dark Energy Camera brings us a step closer to understanding dark energy, one of the biggest mysteries in the whole of physics," Professor Ofer Lahav, of University College London, who heads the UK arm of the consortium, said.
Scientists will use the new camera to carry out the largest galaxy survey ever undertaken, and will use that data to probe dark energy by studying galaxy clusters, supernovae and the large-scale clumping of galaxies.
"This will be the largest galaxy survey of its kind, and the galaxy shapes and positions will tell us a great deal about the nature of the physical process that we call Dark Energy, but do not currently understand," Professor Will Percival, of Portsmouth University who co-coordinates the galaxy clustering part of the investigation, said.
The Dark Energy Survey is expected to begin in December after the camera is fully tested and will take advantage of the excellent atmospheric conditions in the Chilean Andes to deliver pictures with the sharpest resolution seen in such a wide-field astronomy survey.
The camera’s array of 62 devices have an unprecedented sensitivity to very red light and will allow scientists from around the world to pursue investigations ranging from studies of asteroids in our own Solar System to the understanding of the origins and the fate of the universe.
The ancient rays have crossed countless distant galaxies to find their way to a mountaintop in Chile where a giant sky mapping machine called the Dark Energy Camera recorded them, the Daily Mail reported.

NEW YORK — While demonstrating the remarkable photographic capabilities built inside its new Lumia 1020 Windows smartphone that will be hitting AT&T stores exclusively in the U.S. on July 26, Nokia showed how you could zoom in on a picture of a haystack and literally find the needle hiding inside.
As Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said during the launch event at a New York City pier, the phone represents the "introduction of the next chapter in smart phone photography." That’s marketing-speak for sure, but I can report that most of the other attendees at the device’s unveiling seemed as eager as I am to put the 1020 through its paces.

The AF sensor works with the Advanced Scene Recognition System – with the latest 91,000-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering III technology, and featuring a newly designed RGB sensor at its heart that examines the scene in front of the lens and compares key features with the built-in database of 30,000 images – to give detected faces some special attention.
Nikon’s new multi-megapixel monster will be made available next month for a suggested retail price of US$2,999.95. Nikon has also announced that its new HD-SLR will be followed in April by a model that enhances the 36.3-megapixel resolution capabilities of the system even further by canceling the effects of the anti-aliasing filter, delivering light directly to the sensor’s photodiodes.
The D800 HD-SLR is said to be ready to shoot in just 0.12 seconds and in FX format, the camera’s new sensor is capable of producing images with a whopping 7360 x 4912 pixel resolution, which also happens to be Nikon’s highest so far.
The 5.7 x 4.8 x 3.2-inch (144.78 x 121.92 x 81.28 mm) D800 HD-SLR sports a Nikon F bayonet mount (NIKKOR lens compatibility), its magnesium alloy chassis has been dirt and moisture sealed, the included Li-ion battery is said to be good for 900 shots per charge, and there’s a built-in flash and dual card slots to take Compact Flash and SD/SDHC/SDXC media.
The improved face recognition technology operates when framing images via the optical viewfinder as well as in Live View on the camera’s 921,000-dot, 3.2-inch LCD monitor with reinforced glass, automatic monitor brightness control, and 170 degree viewing angle.
The new prothusiast camera benefits from a 9, 21 or 51-point AF system, where the Multi-Cam 3500-FX AF sensor module and algorithms have been improved for low light performance.

For comparison, Hewlett Packard estimates that the quality of 35mm film is about 20 million pixels [ref].
The amount of detail that the camera can capture is called the resolution, and it is measured in pixels.
For example, a 2.1-megapixel camera can produce images with a resolution of 1600×1200, or 1,920,000 pixels.
High-end consumer cameras can capture over 12 million pixels.
Some professional cameras support over 16 million pixels, or 20 million pixels for large-format cameras.

While shoppers will typically try out a smartphone’s camera before making a purchase decision, vendors like Samsung and Sony “already deliver very good cameras in their flagship devices,” Jeronimo says, adding that 71% of total smartphone shipments in the first quarter of 2013 featured a 5 MP camera or higher, but only 4% featured a 10 MP camera.
The company launched its new flagship 1020 Lumia phone powered by Windows in New York today, its primary selling point being a high-quality camera that combines an image stabiliser, large sensor and 41 megapixel camera.

If the teaser image turns out to really come from the Oppo Find 7 it would dethrone the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 from having the highest megapixel count around.
The posted image may have been enhanced by some post-processing trickery, but it seems like the Find 7’s camera can handle good dynamic range.
The smartphone megapixel war is back on as a new image suggests Chinese manufacturer Oppo might have a 50MP smartphone camera.
Oppo posted a new photo of a Ford classic supposedly taken by the upcoming Find 7 in a whopping 8,160 x 6,120 resolution.

The ARGUS, which comes to us courtesy of the U.S. Army, as well as DARPA, is probably the highest-resolution camera in the world, and definitely the highest-resolution surveillance platform in the world, and with its ridiculous 1.8 gigapixel display, why wouldn’t it be both of those? It would sit at an altitude of 20,000 feet, just less than four miles, and could observe an area of 25 square miles at one time.

“With these new A7 camera systems, Sony has completely redefined the look and feel of a professional-grade digital camera,” said Mike Kahn, the director of the interchangeable lens camera business at Sony Electronics.
Sony bills the A7 series as the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame interchangeable lens cameras.

How to Buy a High Megapixel Camera on eBay eBay can be a great source for buying digital cameras that have enough megapixels for zoom cropping and for making large prints.
