So, how many megapixels does one really need??
We're expecting our first child in about six months, and one of the items that I consider essential baby equipment is a decent digital camera. I LOVE my Rebel SLR (35 mm) and I will never give it up in a million years. But I know that with a new baby, we'll go broke processing the thousands of daily snapshots that are bound to be demanded by both first-time grandmas. My mom has a Canon Powershot A620 which I really love. It takes beautiful pictures. It's 7.4 megapixels and the shots can be enlarged to 11 x 17 according to the booklet. There's an earlier model of that camera that's only 5 megapixels that is a little more in my price range, and I guess I really don't know how much difference that makes. Any words of wisdom from you wise scrappin' ladies out there??
