4K Security Cameras
Megapixel is a term used to demonstrate how many actual pixels can fit within a resolution. The actual word "megapixel" means 1-million pixels, though this number is used rather loosely. For better and more demonstrative purposes, MP is often related to a camera's potential resolution. A camera with 1MP will have around 1-million pixels within the image, but a better way to say it is: the camera has a resolution of 1280x720. Conversely, a camera that has 3,145,728 pixels in its image might be better presented as simply having a resolution of 2048x1536, or 3.2MP. The higher the MP, the higher the resolution. Higher resolutions bring very crisp images, but they are also cost-heavy when it comes to storage. A high-quality image is simply going to hog more space. One should search for a resolution that suits his or her needs while not being overly expensive or difficult to store.
4K resolutions - 8MP or 12MP - are top of the line when it comes to high-quality images. These cameras will produce some of the sharpest results around!
