Choosing a Digital Camera
I wanted to pass along this really cool site which has some good info on Digital Photography. It also has some nice tutorials on taking better pictures.
Mega Pixel "A megapixel is the term used for a million pixels — and the more megapixels an imaging sensor has, the higher the camera's potential resolution."

The more pixels that you have, the greater the the quality of the picture. A 3 MegaPixel camera is pretty much what you need in terms of most uses. Anything larger than that is just an added bonus.
Currently working on my MBA program. I hope to return sometime in December 2010.

There are two advantages to large Megapixel cameras:

Strictly speaking, more megapixels=better quality pictures is not quite true. During the "megapixel wars" stage, camera manufacturers were cramming more and more pixels into the same-sized sensor, making each pixel a bit smaller. Bigger pixels take in more light and provide better images, particularly at high ISO settings. Sensor size, lens quality, and image processor also determine the quality of a picture.
Basically, a way to look at it is you have a pizza, and it's cut into 8 slices...if you take that same pizza and cut it into 10 slices, you still have the same pizza. But "10-slice pizza" sounds bigger than "8-slice pizza."
The more pixels you have, the bigger you can blow up a print - but you can't really assume the images will look any better. In some cases, image quality has actually been sacrificed by packing more pixels onto a sensor.
If you're having trouble deciding between an 8- and 10-megapixel camera, look to its other features. The difference between 8 and 10 megapixels is negligible. I've seen brilliant 20x30" prints made from 6-megapixel images...that's a pretty big print.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
