a small, single white shell surrounded by golden beach sand.

32.5 megapixels.

That was what won me over in the end when I recently upgraded my mirrorless camera. The Canon EOS M6 Mark II has a 32.5 megapixel sensor, helping make images like this look super crispy. Obviously, this has been heavily compressed but still, you can almost pick out the individual grains of sand. I know megapixel count isn’t everything when it comes to picking a camera for photography, but it certainly helps here. If I decided to upload a cropped version of this image, I reckon there’d be no discernible loss in detail/quality.
