What's your megapixel w/ pic

I've noticed that a lot of people have been talking about the quality of digital pictures coming from the new era of digital cameras. As someone who is considering the acquision of a digital camera I thought that it might be helpfull to myself and everyone else in the same boat if we could start a thread showing the quality of pictures from cameras differing in Mexapixel level. This way those considering purchasing a camera will be able to get a better idea of what detail level they want and the associated cost.

3.2 megapixel camera



http://www.dpreview.com/news/9902/99021805.asp

Mega pixel will more effect print size than anything anymore. It does not control the quality of the image, unless the larger resolution ccd gives better quality than the smaller. Mega-pixels also allow for easier cropping for web applications.

This was taken on a 3.1 mp fuji cam.



Its not that great cuz its some of the first pics I took but I was impressed with level of detail...a big improvement over my old less than 1mp cam that cost like $400.

Thanks for the response. I'm surprised at the quality of 3.2. Does anyone have > 6 megapixel pictures?

To contrast all these beautiful pictures, here's about the best you're going to get with the average digital camera (2.0 MP). Detail is okay only on larger subjects, and even then it gets grainy, as you can see here. :/
