Thanks for the explanation Mark I had heard of oversampling before but never really new what it meant .
On the subject of what these compacts and camera phones can offer photographers , I would like to know how and why a photographer would use them . Are they just a handy sized camera to take test shots before bringing out the big guns or are they the main camera if your only using the shots for the web .
