In a camera, which factor is responsible for good photos? MP or the lenses?
— Karan S
The MP acts like the retina in your eye. In order for pixels to ‘see’, the lens needs to correctly focus the light on them. Without pixels, the lens has nothing to direct the focused light. Without the lens, the pixels won’t ‘see’ anything in focus. You can have megapixels and no visible image… you can have a lens and no image. Working together, there is an image.
There is no ‘single element’ that makes a ‘good photo’. They all need to work together as a system – be sure to add in the shutter (and shutter speed), aperture/iris, and in digital photography, the ‘amplifier’ that dictates the visible image (ISO) – and above all, the person using the device.
