That’s 2mp not 4. The # of megapixels does not determine IQ, The more sensor resolution the larger you can print, the more you can zoom in and the more you can crop.

Look at the picture, not the pixels

I found out afterwards that I made the mistake of 4mp instead of 2mp but once it's posted it can't be altered.

In this case it was a m43 16 Mp sensor.
It is likely to be the reason why people are moving away from camcorders with their small sensor and using photo cameras that have larger sensors for their video recordings.
