Thanks for the reply and the great suggestions. I will check the computer monitor resolution first. I have sold the canon so i can't really compare by taking pics with both but when i first got the sanyo, i got a couple of pics develeoped (4x6) that were taken at the highest setting (5MP), and they just didn;t look that great.
If you are shooting in an area with a low amount of natural light, what would be a good ISO setting, would you try a higher number?
I'll try out a few things and thanks again for all the suggestions!
