Hello,

I am trying to decide between the Kodak DX7440 and DX7630 and was wondering about your thoughts on MegaPixels. The cameras seem practically identical except that the 7630 has 6.1 Mp verses the 7440 with 4.0 Mp.

In Jeff Keller's review of the 7630, he noted that so many Mp on such a small sensor led to above average noise. Would the 7440 with presumably less noise make for better pictures? Or does more Mp always translate into better pictures?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks

More megapixels + small sensor = more noise, however more megapixels gives you the ability to crop without losing too much quality, however more megapixels requires a memory card, however more megapixels is a little more forgiving with focus when printed at a small size.

All of life is a compromise, which one is better for you?

If you actually read the reviews on these two digital cameras you will find that the Kodak DX-7440 received better photo quality comment in the reviews than the Kodak DX-7630.
