What is the pixal count setting on my EM5 in settings menu all about ?
Let me Google that for you: http://www.dpiphoto.eu/resolution.htm
The more pixels the better. Depending on sensor size, because an overpopulated sensor is not a good thing.
Well, if you start at the top left and go all the way to the bottom right, moving left to right and top bottom, adding one each time you pass a pixel, when you get to the end the number you have is the pixel count!
But I'm sure that's not what you meant
It's about looking for the answer to life, the universe and everything.
If you want jpeg's with lower resolution than the resolution of your sensor you can use a setting with a lower pixel count. When the camera processes the jpeg it will down sample the image before saving. This gives you a smaller file. You can't get those pixels back unless you're shooting raw+jpeg. The raw file will still contain all the data.
The answer is 42... and don't forget your towel.
I'd rather listen to Vogon poetry than be without my towel.
bigal1000, it doesn't matter if you're processing from raw; it's only the jpegs that are pulled off the raw files by the camera that are scaled down. You can still work from the full raw image in OV3, LR or other software on your computer and export as whatever sized jpeg you want.
