Is there much of a difference between a 3 and a 4 megapixle camera. All this talk about a digital camera has got me looking at them more and more. <br><br>I'm hearing a lot of talk about the A70, and now Canon has released the A80. I'm still on the fence because I don't understand the value of some of the features more than anything else.<br><br><br>The thread killer
From Popular Photography:<br><br>"To effectively double the resolution of an image you need to increase the pixel size by four."<br><br> Therefore the difference between a 3 and 4 MP camera is very little in respect to resolution. The big difference is what the camera's software does with the information it is given. How accurate does it reproduce color, for example. <br><br>This is what makes specs on a digital camera so subjective and why you should really read a lot of reviews and best of all, demo one.<br><br>

I can't be certain yet, but i think like the A60 the A80 essentially the same camera at the A70. The two differences in this case is a larger CCD which will give you a better image quality (and the 4mp) and a flip out LCD. Whether or not it's worth it is up to you and how much you want to spend.<br><br>Here is more on the camera from Dpreview. <br><br>
