Default choices

Well you probably allready no that the S404 is 4 mega pixel, plus has a 4X optical zoom compared to 3 mega pixle and 3X optical zoom on the 3020. Looking at pictures from both cameras here at Steves they both take real nice pictures. So do you think you need more optical zoom? I always find i need more. Are you going to be printing pictures and if so how big? or maybe i should ask what photo printer your planning on buying? My 3 mega pixel camera does very good 8.5 by 11 borderless prints on my epson 780 printer but if i have to crop the picture i see quality loss because there just arent enough pixels per inch after croping very much. So if big prints are what you mite do with cropping involved i would go to 4 mega pixels.
