Megapixel Myth

I was having a conversation with Connor last night regarding a point and shoot camera that is listed has a 15 Megapixel (Canon G10) camera versus a DSLR that is listed as a 10 Megapixel camera (Nikon D80) – which one gives better pictures.
First thought is the point and shoot would do better – it has more megapixels, right? This article helps explain why megapixels don’t matter – size matters.

  1. J,

    Thanks for the additional articles. Does not mean that I still don’t want to upgrade to a D90 and a 18-270 lens though 😉
