What Is QVGA and What Is It Used for in Photography?

In photography the term ‘QVGA’ refers to a video resolution of 320×240 pixels. QVGA stands for ‘Quarter Video Graphics Array’ and is named as such because the resolution 320×240 pixels is a quarter of the size of the standard VGA resolution which is 640×480 pixels. The QVGA resolution was often used in the LCD viewing screens of older digital cameras, but has now been superseded by units capable of displaying images at higher resolutions. the QVGA resolution may also be found on some basic cell phones with low resolution cameras. QVGA displays, due to their low resolution, cannot render images with much detail.
