Default Effective-recorded pixels

First of all this is the great site. Thanks a lot for doing it.
Second – this is my ?.
I am considering to by between two cameras: FinePix S602 and Dimage7i. What I don’t understand, how FinePix with 3.1 Mpixels makes higher resolution (2832 X 2182) pictures then Dimage7i with 5 Mpixels. Please advise.

Fuji uses interpolation to get a bigger image than the CCD size. Call it a software solution to a hardware limitation. Sometimes is works pretty good but I'd personally rather start with 5 megapixels then make the image bigger in post production if I have to.

You can get a decent 8x10 from a 2.1 Mpixel camera so I would imagine 11x14 is within the limit of the S602. Going any higher would require a significant investment in printer technology... I agree with Padeye however that you should go for real 5 Mpixels than interpolated 6 if you can afford it.
