If a 24mm sensor can hold 24 megs of pixels, why doesn't a 35mm sensor hold 35? I have noticed that a Nikon DF has a fill sized sensor, but only holds 16 mps.
Is there no corollation between sensor size and the number of pixels?
Please, try to explain in layman's terms, if you are a tech guy. I am an art guy, not an electrical engineer.
