9mp is great - the higher the better quality picture you will get.

The 'mp' number does not necessarily mean that the camera will be good though. If it is a proffesional camera (usually black and chunky) then it will probably be good.

The cost is important too. If you got it for under $100 then it will be okay for holiday snaps but not ideal for the more scenic/proffesional route.

About $700 will get you a good professional one, although they can be worth 1000's.

Good Luck with it x

That's plenty. More megapixels is not necessarily better. Anywhere from 6-12 is good. Higher and images will be dark and less colorful, lower and the quality will suffer.

That seems pretty good. But I suppose it really depends on the photos you take or want to take and what you're going to do with them.

I haven't gotten around to printing my pictures on anything bigger than the A4 paper.

So, if you like macro and your camera can't do that very well or if you like to do nature and have limited zoom, then look for something better. Well if you have a dslr, new lenses would be the way to go. :P

I like to go to this website for tips & techniques:

And it's possible to take online classes. I can't remember any at the moment but they aren't cheap. If you search on the forums on that website, you'll find the names of them and reviews.
