To be honest, a P&S camera should only need, tops, 6MP unless people
want to go crop crazy.

Yes 6 MP is enough for everyday shots and in fact a lot less is fine if only ever screen viewing or postcard size printing.

The 3264x2448 pixels of the GRD1 could be cropped to 1/4 the area (ie 2x "zoom") and still print a good postcard print. (Resulting 1632x1224 crop still is over about 250 ppi on postcard size).

Maybe I might buy that cheap "obsolete" GRD sitting in the local shop window.
