    Hi,

    We've been using the Fuji Finpix 1400 digicam for about 2 years. Prices have
    dramatically dropped and we are looking to upgrade. Im assuming I should
    skip right over the 2 megapix and go to at least 3? The Finpix 1400 used
    smartmedia and had a 3x optical zoom. Any recommendations on what we should
    buy? I've checked out Steve's digicams and it is a great site for info I
    just wish they would put them in best to worst. I plan on spending about
    $250 for the camera.

    thanks

    Why do you assume that??

    The Finpix 1400 used
    If you were happy with 1.5 Mp and only want to spend $250, then you may not
    get much improvement. At the low end, things seem to be running at about
    $100 per Mpixel.
    What do you print/display? For 4x6, 1.5Mpixelis fine, 2 is slightly better.
    For significantly larger prints, you want 4-5 Mpixels, which is out of your
    price range.
