The difference between megapixels is so tiddly that it's not worth the time of day.

10 megapixels is better than 8 megapixels? I'm going to call baloney on that one. What is the actual difference? On a 2:3 ratio camera, 8 megapixels is 3456 x 2304 pixels. 10 megapixels is 3888 x 2592. This is a whole 344 pixels wider and a while 298 pixels taller.

And 12 is a tiny bit better than 10 and 14 is a tiny bit better than 12. But 24 is a lot better than 8. What happened? Your logic breaks down, that's what happened.

No. The logic is still good. Where is your 3k x 2k monitor?

Even at 300dpi, 8mp still produces a phenomenal 8x10. 300dpi is baloney anyway. 100 is fine.

As for the people that stick their noses right up against an 8x10 print trying to find a fault - they're going to find fault with water or air too. I don't particularly care for people that go looking for flaws.

I use 8mp and don't really see any cause to go bigger.
