Default Which camera?


I've been looking at getting a digital camera for a while now, and have been reading up on a lot of reviews. I am trying to get advice. I will mainly be using the camera for 4x6 or 3x5 shots and dont plan on taking shots any larger. Ive looked at the canons, specifically the s230 and like the size and compactness of it. So what im wondering if 3 megapixels is overkill for 3x5 and 4x6 shots, and what camera would be good for my purposes? Also, how do you go about printing out pics from a dig cam, besides using your computer? Is CVS or Walgreens able to print out pics from a memory card?? thanks for the help.

Hi Kyle,

I firmly believe that there is no such thing as "too many pixels" when it comes to digital camera! Even when you are going to limit yourself to 3x5 or 4x6 prints, the additional pixels will give you more flexibility when it comes to cropping images for optimal composition/framing on the computer afterwards. If the price difference between say 2mp and 3mp is negligible, then by all means go with more megapixels.

Places like Walgreens and Costco have a Fuji machine called Aladdin, that can accept all forms of digital media (SM, CF, etc.) and also CD-ROMs. Or you can upload images straight from the computer to a website and they'll print them for you (Costco also offers this service).

Good luck!
