This was done with a 1.3 mega pixal Olympus. Remember - it's not the size that matters, it what the camera does with each pixal.

What is the actual name of your camera? I'm wondering because my aunt is hoping for an Olympus digital camera but nothing fancy or overly expensive. Can you share any details with me for her?

Thanks!

This is a Olympus D460 Zoom 1.3 mega pix. I purchased it 4 years ago for $350 and it drowned on a golf course. Heavy rain and I picked it out of my bag and it was HOT. FRIED

So - since I liked it I got one on ebay for $100. Great little camera for what it is.

I just looked and you can get them n ebay for $79.

This shot was taken at the highest optical level at the Farmers Market in Madison - HOWEVER - for snapshots you can use even the lowest level with good results. GREAT battery life - better then most inexpensive Digitals.

I never played with the menus much but there is White Balance, 4 or 5 "ISO" settings and a bunch of other things to play with if you want. The perfect snapshot camera on the cheap.

I actually blew this up to an 8x10 and it still looks real nice . . . .although I wish I had owned my D70 at the time.

They more or less agreed that less can be more with the D30.
3mp dslr which was at the time able to capture a shot that
was competitive with film.

The same tends to go for the p&s; i think that 3 or 4mp
cameras are the most mps with adequate to good image
quality.:!:

All repends on the picture - there is a reason Arizone Highways mag does not except Digital.

Unless you have a 25 MP you can't blow shots up THAT big wthout pixelating.

I can't, but i have heard rumours that some people with excellent technique can. But in general for times when
you need that kind of resolution, there is a very real
need for more space on the sensor. And probably funds
to cover it anyway.
