Advantages of dSLRs vs. digitals ?

by pla1945 / February 23, 2005 10:13 PM PST

I wrote this yesterday, but it didn't get posted...

I have a Minolta Dimage 7i and am fairly happy w/it . However, I'm dissatisfied with its inability to generate quality enlargements greater than 8x10. I've been told that more pixels are the answer...others have said that I need a digital SLR. Any opinions?

(NT) (NT) The pixels have it if you want enlargements.

As Kiddpeat said, it's all about the megapixels. If you want large, photo quality prints, get an 8 megapixel or as many as you can afford. "Megapixels" only refers to the size of the photo being taken. The "quality" of that photo will then vary depending on how large you attempt to print it -The more megapixels, the bigger you can print without grainy washout.
