Pixel density - can the playing field be leveled???
Jun 6, 2009

I have read several posts that kind of cover this subject, but I can't seem to find the answer to my question, so forgive me, if it has already been covered. I did try to search first!

I will try to ask my question as simply as possible. If two camera's have the same size sensor, and one is a 10 MP, and the other is a 15 MP, and I lower the resolution on the 15 MP to 10, can I expect the same picture quality for a noise perspective? Of course, this is putting all of the other camera functions (noise reduction, etc) aside.

I am tired of reading "if this company would have resisted the megapixal war, this would be a great camera". What the hell does that mean?

Can I lower the resolution to get the same reduction in noise, that the lower res camera has?
