In the market for a point and shit camera?

If you’re considering buying a point and shoot digital camera, be sure to read my May 13 blog entry Why digital point and shoot cameras are “all shit”, and my article on the actual resolution you can expect from a point and shit (shoot) camera. The latest stupidity (that nonetheless makes for good marketing hype), is the advent of 12-megapixel digicams, leading to diffraction-limited resolution at f/5.6 or so.

Give me quality pixels, not millions upon millions of garbage-quality ones. I want a point and shoot camera with a relatively large 4-6 megapixel sensor using today’s sensor technology, and a high-quality 28mm f/2 lens. If Canon and Nikon can make digital SLRs for about $500-$600 with large sensors, why can’t they make a point and shoot compact with a sensor just half that size (which would still be “huge”).
