Although the pixel count of a camera (X multiplied times Y) may be 20 megs, the final picture is never that large because of JPEG or other compression. Raw will yield a closer number though.
It's not uncommon for MP specs to be listed that way. It is a little misleading but many/most manufacturers do it.It depends on the aspect ratio you chose... most people like to go for 16:9, however only 3:2 (squarer and less cinematic) will get you the advertised 20MP :/
Something's not right there.Just downloaded a CR2 (raw file) from DJI and opened in Photoshop CC. It shows it is an 18.7 MP image (5760x3240)
This is from a folder called Straight from the Camera
Don't worry about it. In the grand scheme of things it is invisible to you. It is still a lot more pixels than you could hand count in a lifetime.Something's not right there.
5760x3240 is not one of the resolution options for the camera.
The sensor doesn't produce images wider than 5472 pixels.
Don't worry about it.If you open any file (No Crop) of Canon 5D Mark II (21.1 Mpx) You will see 5616x3744, Tif, JPG, PSD etc 3:2 Ratio, Why Dji samples not have 3:2 Ratio?, DJI say 20 Mpx but effective only 17?
New Hi Meta4, thanks for comment, as photographer as a recommendation or lesson never take photos at a lower resolution than the sensor has, you can crop afterDon't worry about it.
DJI state that the available camera resolutions are:
3:2 Aspect Ratio: 5472 × 3648
4:3 Aspect Ratio: 4864 × 3648
16:9 Aspect Ratio: 5472 × 3078
And there's no reason to suspect that the published specs won't be true.
5472 × 3648 = 20 MP.
Their track record is not good on delivering on the marketing hype for range and battery life. However, camera specs are not subjective, and pixel dimensions won't vary with the environment. It's really not possible to fudge on them.LMAO......P4 = 3.1mil range, 28min flight time, 22mph with OA enabled..... all are DJI specs that are not true. This is why people question anything DJI publishes.
