Unless you "blow up" the image into specific areas (zoom in), you really don't need the extra "Mega pixels".. 5 should be enough I think. hehe.. Mine is a 3.1 camera ..

Of course, if you are into zooming in to various areas of the picture and printing them as its own image - then it might be useful to have that extra detail stored.
