Are More Megapixels Better?
If you can't decide what digital camera to get, especially if you're looking at what appear to be identical camers with different megapixle counts, then you need to check this out.
The issue of megapixels with digital cameras really comes down to how large you want to print the final images. Five megapixels is generally enough to look pretty good at page sizes up to 8-by-10. If you plan on printing to larger paper sizes, then more megapixels may be better. More megapixels also gives you the flexibility to crop your photos and still make fairly large prints. Cameras that seem to be identical except for the pixel count often perform very differently, so read reviews on all similar models.
