So my questions are:
1.is it a really big difference between 3 mgp and 4 mgp (NO)

2.which is the best 3 mgp for the moment ? (depends on how much you want to spend, take a look at the Oly 730UZ)

3.which is the best 4 mpg for the moment ? (Oly C4000Z - penny for penny)

Thanks...cause i can t decide myself only ! lolll (Eventually you'll have to take the plunge)

MP is calculated by screen resolution; horizontal resolution by vertical resolution, example 2048x1536=3.1mp With more MP you can print a slightly larger image, but most people's printers are 8.5x11 max, and 2mp would be enough for that sized image (but more MP would give you a finer image, and allow you to crop more out and still get a nice 8x10 out of it).

As for what camera to buy, no one can tell you what camera will be good for your needs...asking what is the best 3mp to buy is like asking, "What is the best 6 cylinder vehicle to buy?"...do you want a 6 cylinder 2 seater sports car, 6 cylinder sedan, 6 cylinder station wagon, 6 cylinder SUV, 6 cylinder minivan, 6 cylinder pickup truck...see what I'm saying?

There's a wide range of cameras out there from the pocketable point&shoot, to ones that have a lot of settings, to ones that have a very long zoom...all depends on what YOU want and need!
