Default HQ vs. SHQ for 4x6 inch prints?

Is there any information/web site showing the relative qualities of HQ vs. SHQ modes for images? I have a 4MP Olympus c-750 camera and plan on printing most shots at the standard 4x6 inch size, using a camera/photo shop's services. I do want the clearest prints available using those services, and I'm willing to shoot all my shots at SHQ, but wonder if there really is any noticeable difference at this print size.

Just to let you know, there is an Olympus forum here that's dedicated to Oly questions.

Anyway, in most cases people can't tell the difference between HQ and SHQ at any size. Most people shoot the common pics at HQ, and switch to SHQ for those special ones so they can get more pics on a card, plus not take up so much space on the PC after. This is especially important since the 750 is 4mp.

Even at 2MP, you won't notice any difference at all in 4x6 prints taken in HQ mode vs SHQ mode.
