Could someone please explain the myth.
I was told that one should not trust the MP rating due to the fact that it has become a marketing gimmick. Cheap point and shoot cameras are boasting meg pixel ratings of more than 10.
Would this mean for example a Fujitsi point and shoot camera that has 12mp will take more detailed pics than a Canon point and shoot that has 6mp.
Its my understanding that one wouldnt be able to see the difference in detail, only if it is blown up real big.
