Purpose

This is a megapixel calculator, a tool to calculate and convert graphical resolution, image memory consumption and file sizes. How many pixels in a DVD image? How does that compare to a 5 megapixel camera? What is the resolution of Digital Cinema 2K? The answer is here!

Megapixel list

Camera For a list of standard or well-known resolutions for camera, screen, video or cinema, check the megapixel resolution chart!
