erm... on theory more megapix = more resolution... more resolution=larger prints....

practical aspect....
more megapix=cost more $$$
more megapix=can impress more people
more megapix=better sales
ore megapix more selling point for salesman....

:lovegrin:

a 3 megapix cam with good lens will still be better than a 5 megapix cam with lousy lens.

So strike a balance....

Ease of use also come into the picture when choosing a compact digicam.

IMHO, if you just like to point and shoot... get those 3-4 mega pix models on discount like olympus Mju selling at $399 or even the old nikon 3700 below $400...

Spend the rest of the money on bigger memory card.

Happy shooting!

That is perhaps what the salesman or advertisement would like you to think
that higher MP count has a direct effect on image quality, so that they could influence buyers to get the more expensive (latest) digital camara.

You may want to read some reviews on www.dpreview.com to obtain more professional views. :thumbsup:
