    Just googled that myself. Here's what I found:

    "Most digital cameras are identified by a megapixel rating that shows how large of an image they can capture. Before there were high megapixel ratings cameras where usually identified as having the VGA resolution. While most digital cameras and other electronic devices that contain cameras no longer use the outdated VGA standard there are still a few applications where it remains useful."

    I think it's the same resolution as what is built into the camera on your iMac or Apple laptops

    I knew there was a difference but never cared to look it up.
