Digital SLR , know when to buy at the right time , look at the end of life models , study when the new ones come out

MegaPixels

The word Pixel is a shortened and combined version of the words Picture and Element. 

Every digital camera contains a device called the image sensor which has millions of light capturing cells. 

The light  captured at each cell location is called a digital camera pixel. For the record, there are one million pixels in a megapixel.

Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras have larger image sensors than a digital compact camera

The larger sensors produce larger pixels which leads to higher quality images.
