What is a megapixel? Verified
A megapixel (MP) equals one million pixels. Megapixels are, among other things, used to indicate the resolution of digital cameras and camcorders. For example a camera that produces images of 1280x960 pixels has a resolution of about 1,3MP. Though there are many factors that influence the quality of an image it can be said that in general more megapixel results in a better image.

How can I prevent 'red eyes' in my pictures? Verified
The 'red eye' phenomenon is caused by too much light in too little time getting to eyes of the people in the picture. This effect is even stronger in a dark atmosphere. The following can be done to prevent it: don't let people look directly into the camera, create more light, take the picture closer to the subject or decrease the use of the zoom function.
