The more pixels the larger the file size.
Digital Devices - Cameras and Camcorders (Extra Features) - GPS Receiver- some cameras have an inbuilt GPS receiver so that geographical coordinates can be stored in the megadata: small text files stored with each image giving information like where the photo was taken. GPS satellites ---> camera ---> Wifi ---> Online album - Wifi = many cameras enable wifi so users can now email the photos or videos to upload them online without having to transfer them to a computer first. - Personal camcorders = these are cheap devices which have a better specification than smart phones and they can record HD videos.
Digital Devices - Media Players (Key Features, Media Formats) -Small light, easy to carry - Uses solid state memory so they songs dont 'skip' when jolted - Long battery life - Hold a lot of media (songs, podcasts, videos etc.) - Can lock to prevent accidental activation - Simple interfaces, e.g. jog wheel - Audio Formats = MP3 and WMA Still images = JPEG, GIF and PNG - Video = MPEG-4 and WMV
