What digital camera for



under £400 has a lense that is equal or better than the resolving power of the chip behind it? is that a silly question? coming from 35mm,i have an afinity for decent lenses,and i cant get my head around cameras that seamingly have 4 million pixels when the lense is only good for half that

or am i wrong?

>It is partly a silly question as the centre quality of nearly all ca mera's is better than the pixelsize. However, at the corners you will clearl y get some differences and there is my experience that better and more expe nsive camera's have some advantage. If you want to see the differences you can go to

where you can actually choose all availabl e camera's to get a good revieuw and can download real with that camera made pictures in JPG format 1-2mB which give a very good impression of you r possible prints with that camera. Canon S50 for ex&le is a very good one with 5 million as I can see from this site where as the corner quality of the panasonic LC5 is slightl y better (Leicalens) but unfortunately this camer has 4 million and a c ertain strange pixeleffect as described in his comments. It's a very usefulkl site, good luck. Bernard Ensink

Thanks Bernard. That is an interesting site. It gave a very good view and details of the new Sony.
