Re: OT - Digital Cam ??
>>What camera did you use to take that picture.
That was a Canon S10, a 2.1 Megapixel model. They have a few different cameras that use the same internals..basically anything Canon sells in the last few years with the 2.1 Megapixel imaging element.
>>This is a hi-res image I took with mine Crow.
Interestingly, the image I posted was not even taken using the hi-res mode of the camera. It was the hi quality setting but only 800x600. The camera did up to 1156x783 or something like that.
> if I was not in SERIOUS sunlight the pictures were almost unusable.
It is worth noting that the picture I posted was not posed but taken as a candid shot in poor lighting. My daughter and the dog were both bouncing around on the bed in the dim lighting and I called them over quick and just snapped the picture. There's no motion blurring and it appears quite clear, even though it has been JPGed twice. (once when taken and again when resized)
>>Just my opinion here, but there are quite a few 2.0+ megapixel cameras out there for around 200 buck that would serve you better and not require upgrade anytime soon.
This is completely true. Especailly for online purposes, there really isn't anything to be gained from 3,4 or 5 megapixel images. All those pixels help make a nicer, larger, more clear print, but on a computer monitor they all look the same when you shrink them down to a usable size.
