[Tech Wednesday] [Tech Wednesday #4] Ultra High Resolution Cameras: Useful OR Gimmick ?

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to yet another Tech Wednesday !

Today's edition is about the ultra high resolution cameras on smartphones that have become a trend this year in order to rival the DSLRs. We will find out why these cameras are useful for better smartphone photography.

The megapixel wars of the many years ago have led to manufacturers settling down for one of three sensor resolutions; 12, 16 and 24 megapixels. The 12-megapixel resolution was considered the sweet spot between quality and quantity, with 16- and 24-megapixel offerings being more for those who needed more resolution

The year 2019 will see many of them change. Huawei brought the megapixel race back to life with 40MP sensor, and now with Sony and Samsung also announcing their versions of 48-megapixel sensors, things are only about to get better

Benefits Of Ultra-High Resolution Camera Sensors In Smartphones

  • Greater ability to capture colour data, thereby replicating the dynamic range of a larger, APS-C sensor (commonly used in standard DSLR/mirrorless cameras).
  • In specific cases, greater ability to capture light, hence improving low light photography — an area where smartphones have typically struggled.
  • Combined pixels has option for / help limit effective size of photos to 10 megapixels or 12 megapixels, which keep them balanced in terms of quality and file size.
  • Large resolution count leaves the sensor with the possibility of capturing minute amounts of data, which would have otherwise been lost due to signal noise.

It may sound gimmicky, but high resolution cameras are here to stay, and offer a plethora of advantages to develop mobile photography.
