No one needs more than 6 Mega Pixels

An explanation of why more megapixels != better picture quality.

Clearly, larger sensors are the only way to go ;-)

Megapixels and Gigahertz

Exactly, megapixels are to digital cameras what gigahertz are to computers: it's important but it's not the only measure to identify how good the kit is. That's why one tip I always give to friends who want to buy a camera is to try it out in the shop, in low light without flash and compare how different models fare.

Wait a minute here...

Are you suggesting that Ican continue to print out pr0n the size of a movie theater screen with 6 MP and still maintain a viewable image from 3 feet away?

BTW digging the layout and style changes you've made.
