If you're posting web pictures, this is an unimportant feature. 2 megapixel digicams are enough to print pictures up to A4 (letter format to you American guys
). If you're talking pictures for website, 2 megapixels are enough.
Just so happen now that you virtually cannot find digicams with 2 megapixels anymore from the various camera manufacturers. So happen that those digicams that come out with advance features are all equipped with super size CCDs. Things that you would want to look for in a digicam is optical zoom (versus digital zoom which is not preferred), battery life and possibly macro mode shooting for that nice closeup pictures of the car
There are many other frills and features that you can look into. I actually have lost touch in digital photopgraphy.
If money is no object, get the Canon EOS 1D
It makes conventional cameras obselete. Seriously, if you want more information and recommendation about digital photography and digicams, just head to this site
. It's the mother of all digicam websites. It has tons of reviews there. There are also forums there that you can ask your questions and like most forums, there are friendly people who would give advise freely and there are those that will bite you off your head. Likewise here too
I use to frequent that website when I first got my Coolpix. Now that RC hobby has taken most of my time, digital photography is just something I use now to feed and support my interest in RC hobby
