How many megapixels can the human eye capture?

first_imgOne of the characteristics in which we look more when buying a camera, is in its resolution. Every year, cameras and even those with mobile phones, have many improvements that allow us to capture the most realistic images. However, none of them are able to recreate the image that we can see. Image: iStock To get a camera to capture the same images we see through our eyes, it would have to be 576 megapixels, but even so, the image we would capture would not reach the sharpness we are able to see.A camera, even if it has a good lens and one of the best sensors, cannot be compared with all the complex features and elements that make up an eye. In addition, there are also different factors that affect our vision and that with a camera would be impossible to recreate.Our vision can capture an image of 576 megapixelsAn example of this is the morphology of our eyes. This morphology allows us to correctly see the things that are in front of us at all times, while the surroundings look more blurred. In addition, there are other factors that decrease the quality of our vision at some times, such as the blind spots of our eyes or the part of our nose that makes us always have things in between.That said, we can confirm that the resolution that our eyes capture varies at any moment and that although our vision can capture an image at 576 megapixels, at other points it can be compared with a resolution of only 7. This fact although it may seem a bit odd It has its logic: everything we observe is transmitted directly to the brain and continuously, so even if we see in some moments we see badly, what we perceive is a processed and correct image of reality.center_img One of the things we look at in a camera is its resolutionThe resolution of a camera cannot be compared with that of the eyeslast_img read more
