Panasonic DMC-LC1....5mp on 2/3" CCD equates 'cleaner' images ?
please enlighten me on the following.......
with the recent release of 8mp digital cameras like the 828, 8080, 8700 etc etc...they all seem to capture images on a 2/3" ccd.
Now I noticed that the latest Panasonic 5mp also uses a 2/3" ccd.
Does this mean that the Panasonic, despite (or because of) a lower pixel count will theoratically produce a much 'cleaner' image than the 8mp cameras above?
thanks for any clarification.

Given that all conditions are the same (example lens, noise reduction algorithm, electronics), squeezing more pixels into a CCD could result in more noise. Of course with technology this will improve. The best is to compare the pictures taken by these cameras under the same condition.
