I read some where that Fuji's Super CCD can be deceiving because they will market there camera to be higher then what it really is because of the way the Super CCD is designed. Like the camera is 3mp but with the super CCD it is equal to a 5~6mp digital camera with a regular CCD.

I remember about a year ago when I was at best buy I saw a Fuji digital camera. It says that the camera is 3.2MP and 6MP max res. with super CCD. I was kinda confused by what it really means until I read up on how Fuji camera works.

The reason why I ask this question is because I just recently bought the Fuji S5200 digital camera with 5mp. I want to know if this is TRUE 5mp or is this really a 3mp or something like upconverted to 5mp.

Those megapixel counts were PR BS.
And in newer cameras with newer sensors Fuji doesn't anymore use that doubling resolution by interpolation.

Here's good site for checking specifications.
