Too many megapixels? Six is enough for an 8x10.

Megapixels

Certainly on most p&s with the 1-2.5 ish size sensor Mr. Gupta is quite correct! Even on SLR's pushing up the sensor count increases high iso noise. Read the tests on comparison sites - mid range SLR's will show an increase of noise filtering the higher the photodiode count given the same physical size sensor.

This rule applies to all sensors. The smart part is the noise reduction algorithm. After having many cameras over the years I'm afraid Mr. Gupta is right.
