I really don't understand the ever increasing megapixels in new cameras. It seems to be a war between the camera manufacturers to sell more, because more is better, and people generally thing that has to be better. My basic thought was your printer resolution basically determines the final outcome. If my 3.2 megapixel camera can print photographic quality 8x10's with my Epson set to max in all modes & printing at 300 dpi what is my gain with a 10 megapixel camera printing at those same settings on the same printer? I understand that I could print a photo quality 5 foot x 5 foot poster with some of these cameras where-as mine could only do the 8x10 but who of all those buying these 10-12 megapixel camers have $20K dollar industrial printers to do this? Hey, what am I missing here? Whats the gain with snapshot prints or even 8x10"s?
