Can anyone tell me why I would want to get this camera which is very well rated but is12mp instead of a 16?
The number o megapixals is only part of the what makes a good camera.
This camera supports 24p in the video. records at 240fps in video. has panorama built into camera, is a CMOS vs most cheaper being CCD, It has a higher resolution screen at 461 dots , 20x Zoom, The light sensitivity is 3,200ISO vs others at 800 ISO, It shoots more pictures faster than less expensive cameras 3.2 Photos ps. I frequently shoot photos while Horse Riding, This camera gives me much crisper photos. Other cameras I've owned always seemed to be slightly blurred because the horse just won't hold totally still. Because of this cameras faster speed, my photos turn out much better than most 16m cameras.
