Here is a picture of my female Azureus that I took today, let me know what you think:

Arklier said:Unless you're printing huge pictures and making glossies, anything over about 4 megapixels is overkill. The resolution has to be cranked way down to fit on web pages.
FrogByte11 said:I have to disagree. Just like memory, you can never have too much. You don't know what you might need or be doing in the future with your photos. Magazines and stock agencies require huge files and are wanting bigger and bigger every day. I would not have gotten several photo jobs if I didn't have the 6.3 mp, and have had to pass up photo jobs because I didn't have more.
If you are 1000% positive that you will never do anything other than web photos or email then ya, 4 mp would do. But I say get as much as you can afford.
Let's just say that you never pursue anything and you are just doing personal stuff. What would happen when a huge company sees some of your web work. They love it and they want to use it for their advertising. They contact you with contract details etc. and they say that you need such and such size file. I promise that it would not be a small size that they would request and you have to decline because you don't have big enough files. Sound far fetched? Not at all. Big companies have people perusing the web all the time for new blood. I have experienced it personally. I can't tell you how excited I was when Canon contacted me first by email and then numerous telephone converstations.
You just never know.
As it was always said when I was a cub scout mommy
Just my two cents.

FrogByte11 said:Kyle have you checked Ebay? I am sure that there are a lot of people just like me, who, when a new camera comes out they sell theirs and get the new model. I have sold all of my cameras through Ebay and they are always in excellent shape and not very old.
FrogByte11 said:Also have you checked into the Canon EOS Digital Rebel? I haven't read up on it really but it seems very nice and it is less money.
B&H Photo Video has some very nice package deals with a 1 gig cf cards. Check it out.
:arrow: B&H Cameras
I have gotten a ton of stuff from them and they are great to do business with.
FrogByte11 said:Yep, understand completely. I have no idea what to expect "shopping" wise at IAD but I can't wait. I know there are a couple of things I hope are there and that I can get. I will just have to wait and see.
So let me know what camera you end up getting.
