No the problem is that you over complicate things and even after I proved that going from 8MP to 12MP is not a 50% increase you keep going on about how I'm wrong even though I posted my formula which is correct and very simple while you try to make some mathematical equation that looks more like rocket science for such a simple subject.

You cited an oversimplified formula trying to show how 12mp reduced to 8mp only loses 406,272 pixels. I showed where that answer came from, how it was calculated and why it is WRONG - and illustrated how the actual number IS calculated. You don't even need to do the math yourself to see that your answer was wrong, and way off base.

You choose to say that I "over-complicate" things. I'm sorry, the actual way of calculating comparative areas is not as simple as what you posted which is wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

Wrong.

Honestly it's more of a waste of my time as I've read way more into this stuff as I used to think that MG's is what matters the most (or is very important) just like you when I first started shooting but I quickly got over that as I was educated.

I wish you'd have uploaded some images of yours that we can see.

BTW you can turn 12MP into 24MP it's called upscaling. Pixels are just that....pixels theres nothing "magical" about them. There are way more important things to consider and megapixels should be the last thing to consider when talking about cropping and image quality.

Yes, you can upscale 12mp into 24mp. But there is not more image data in the 24mp, only the same image spread over 2x as many pixels.

Post some images to illustrate your point and then we can talk more. For now, have a nice day.
