    Hi guys,I was just looking at my pics in aperture,and some of the pics which have been taken in the camera+ app on both the 5 and 4S show at 3346x2530 (8.5mp) :eek:.

    How is this possible when they both hve an 8.0mp camera :confused:

    That's because they usually round off the number in marketing. It just sounds neater to say 8MP

    That's weird that they say the smaller the number,but still some photos still show 8.0mp,some 8.5mp,I guess it can variate between photos ?

    Sounds like you are looking at file size?? MB's not MP's. That can vary with compression. Resolution will not vary. :cool:
