Shoot at lower MP?

Re: Shoot at lower MP?

Long ago I used to trim and compress to reduce storage.  I have since revisited some of those photos and regretted that decision.

Personally, I look at it this way...  When I pull the trigger, I won't get to capture that exact moment ever again.  I want to shoot, process, store and deliver in the highest resolution and quality that I possibly can.

I store most my pics at a lower res, around 1600x1200. Are there any benefits (other than having the option to crop from a high res image) to shoot at a lower res say 5 MP to begin with, instead of re-sizing the pics post? Thanks.
