Minimum pixel quality

Hi, I have been out of the Airliners.net loop for a while now. Any cameras I have are just not up to job regarding quality. Can anyone tell me what is the minimum pixel requirement now as my last camera I was using was only 10 million pixels.Thinking about buying a Canon 700d or 750d. Many thanks Andy
