Canon PowerShot A2400 IS

Lets be frank here- this is a "point and shoot"- and as such will most likely be used for holiday snaps,nights out etc- with output likely to be 6x4 or A4/A3 prits at most and web displays/uploads etc.... so why 16mp...???
Leave the high megapixel counts to the guys/girls who need it- semi-pro/pro model DSLR's and such like who may actually have a need/use for it....
Getting back to this camera- f/6.9 at the long ( ish...!) 140mm end is a bit depressing...
That's going to limit the use of the zoom in anything other than great light- or high iso's beckon...!

I agree, more or less --

A semi-pro or pro would rather have 10 MP on a sensor this size. Hence Canon's choice of 10 MP on the S95, only recently upping it to 12 MP on the S100 with a CMOS sensor. And these cameras actually have a larger sensor than the A2400, so the pixel density is even more reduced. Indeed the 16 MP on this A2400 is all about marketing. The big camera companies got into this pixel count war and I'm not sure they know how to get out of it. Again, 16MP in a point and shoot is ludicrous. Who is going to make an 11x17 print shot with an A2400 ? And what will it look like if you do ??
