    I have a cannon powershot sd100. Great for what it is. Cannon makes the best digital cameras IMO.

    I use the canons and Sony DSC series. Well currently i use a crappy intel webcam for pics. But I've always used a canon or sony.

    Minolta is decent also.

    does the higher the megapixel # get the better the quality of the pic?

    higher pixel count = higher resolution

    higher resolution = "better" picture

    I personally wouldn't use anything less than a 3.x MP

    well, resolution isn't everything.

    all resolution will give you is larger pictures.
    when you re-size them down to web format (8mp is like 2056x2000 or some shit pixels wide... f'in huge) it forces more pixels into 1 given spot. but ultimately, you're limited by your 600 dpi printer or whatever you plan to show them on... unless you have a really good photo printer.

    the LENS is what gives you great pics. not the mega pixel.

    a 3 mp PRO camera with a high qual lens will produce a better looking picture than an 8mp normal lense (like mine) at resonable 3mp sizes.

    if you're just looking to get pics on the web, pretty much any point-and-shoot camera will be fine.

    if you plan to print pictures, thats where you get into the quality loss.

    That was my next point. Higher resolution will help with detail, but only when paired with a good lens and ccd.

    Moral of the story: don't buy cheap crap. a Sony 3.xx MP will be better than an HP 5.xx MP. Read reviews and make an educated decision.
