Technology / Digital Cameras / Effective Pixel Count: There are two different ways to think about the pixels on a camera's image sensor. 'Actual' pixels is a simple count of every pixel present on the sensor. 'Effective' pixels, however, is a count of all the pixels used to record an image and it's almost always a tiny bit lower than the 'actual' count, because some pixels on a sensor aren't used to record picture information. Effective pixel count is widely used, because it's a much more accurate way to assess a camera's maximum picture capture capability.
