How does a MEGA PIXEL relate to a PIXEL....My old S L R took photos at 20,000 pixels while my new digital purchased from America through amazon.com takes photos at 4 mega pixels......Yes it was heaps cheaper buying on the Internet.... savings of mega dollars were made (exaggeration).....

1 Megapixel = 1 Million Pixels.

Pixel: Short for picture element, Pixels are the tiny dots of information that make up a digital image. The more pixels there are on the camera's image sensor (CCD or CMOS), the higher the image resolution will be. The higher the resolution, the clearer an enlarged print can be.

Only the very best professional digital SLR cameras will get close to a good SLR camera re pixels but, you would be hard pressed to notice the difference.
