That makes alot of sense....



Thats like saying why do you need 400HP in your car...because when I want to use it I can,pretty simple concept.


Do not buy some high m.p. / cheap POS you will regret it,the sd750 / 1000 is not expensive,as a matter of rfact I know of one on anandtech like new / complete for $165 shipped.


get the canon,you will thank me later ...
I dont get what your saying. Your whole 400Hp thing throws me off. When is the normal person that wants to take pictures of their friends or just random pictures to post on mysapce going to use 7mp? (not saying she is going to do that because I dont know but what it sounds like she doesnt want to be a professional photographer with a $300 camera just have some fun) Unless you want bigger file sizes and have the ABILITY to make 20X30in or bigger prints (who knows she may want to though) you dont need 7mp. You can get a great 8X10 at 3mp. I rather have a Better CCD then more MP'* for a $300 camera. Now granted if she plans on cropping in ALOT or making HUGH pictures get the 7 but 3-5MP would be fine for Wallets 4X6'* 5X7'* 8X10'* 11X14'* and maybe even 16X20. I myself shoot with expensive DSLR cameras and I rarely use all the MP of my camera. I will enlarge a picture to 20X30 maybe once a month. I did a 40X60 print recently and it looks AWESOME with a 10.2mp camera.

He has a list for compact and super compact at the bottom. Should be a good place to start.
