go talk face-to-face with a couple of camera stores 9not a big box store) and assess your NEEDS vs your DESIRES. from my in store conversations it seems constant that if you don't plan enlargements greater than 8x11.5 then 3.0megapixels is enough. also think 2x about the digital slr's with interchangable lenses. that means you'll be packin more crap in the bag you carry around so it's all at your fingertips when you need it. the one thing that's really difficult to get my arms around is comparing, for example, a 10x optical zoom point and shoot capability with say, a 30~150mm zoom lense on an slr. then it gets really technical. however, another common thread is that the lense quality on the slr is superior to the point and shoot. again, i think that goes back to how often and to what size you want to enlarge your pix.
