There are some people who base their choices on the megapixels of the camera that they would purchase. You should remember that the megapixels are not everything. They will help in order to improve the quality of the photograph but there is no guarantee that you will get amazing pictures every time.

What you should look for when you want to take amazing portraits are great sensors that will have the ability to provide you with better-looking images. At this point, you just need 8 megapixels to take portraits. If you want to improve the quality of your portraits, invest in lenses that you can equip on your camera.

Megapixels are not everything. It is better to choose a camera that has lower megapixels as long as they are equipped with better lenses and amazing sensors. Taking portraits can be tricky because the images have to be very clear. A lot of people say that you need about 7 megapixels to take amazing portrait shots.

You can go higher if you want to blow up the image but if you just need something simple to display, a 7-megapixel camera with working lens and sensors can already be enough for your needs. Remember that lighting will also play a huge role on how amazing the portrait would look like.
