I have another very good example. Examine the image of my real thumbnail fingerprint, taken with the same camera, set at VGA (640x480). The quality in better than "very good".....the resolution for the 0.31MP file is excellent for a post card sized print. Here it is: http://www.facebook.com/photo.ph ... ;type=1&theater

Amazing detail for such low resolution. It goes to show that the megapixel game is just a sales gimmick by the camera manufacturers.

Most of my cameras are below ten megapixels and give excellent results. My SLR is still only six megapixels, but I see no need to change.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Nope hermit,
VGA-Resolution is sharp and nice at an Image Size that reflects VGA.

Increase the image Size to fullscreen - aaaaand it's gone.

Of course the Megapixels Number is not the only factor to Image Quality, can be quite a misleading one.
But the average Consumer does not really want to hear about all the details like the size of the chip itself and stuff - He wants a nice and handy figure for orientation.
And to some degree the Resolution does serve that purpose.

Of course chinese manufacturers of electronic waste are going to jump in to skim of the most ignorant, who really believe a small format camera with digital zoom only and a lense and chip as on some mobile phone camera but "20 MP" could snap pictures better than a 5 MP SLR. And some of the Customers will notice and become dissatisfied Customers who blame it on the Manufacturers who gave them what they wanted, or on whomever but themselves.
Their problem, both those Market Actors do at best possibly just deserve each other.
