      I changed to a compact a couple of years ago. The big SLR was getting to be a burden on my old neck. I went for a Panasonic TZ7 and I must say I have not regretted it one bit. The TZ range is great and even fills in as a camcorder. Mine just does 720i but the newer ones do full HD 1080i. The new model has a 20 x optical zoom against my 12x. I have also dumped my camcorder as the video it produces is so good, so my old back is feeling much better.

      It all depends on the subjects you wish to shoot. A high number of megapixels will enable you to enlarge your pictures, but will have real problems shooting in low light. The choice can often be between low megapixels and high zoom or high megapixels and low zoom. personally I prefer the former because I can zoom into the area I want to "enlarge" it rather than having to crop a section from a larger field of view.

      However, the best camera is the one you are carrying at the time you want to capture a picture. A small camera which fits in a pocket and you carry all the time will take more good pictures than a larger one you don't often carry around.

      Good shooting.

      To expand from what Felix is saying, a lot of recent pictures which I have posted on this forum, and a couple of others, have been from my mobile phone.

      I've used my phone, rather than my camera, purely because it was handy and very quick to get the images onto my Laptop. From there I've uploaded them to photobucket and posted the links.

      Obviously it does depend on the type of photos you take. Examples of recent pics include the EPG and some panoramic shots off Hayling Island beach.

      This is off my Canon 50D with a 1200 quid lens on it:



      This is off my Sony Xperia S mobile phone



      This is off my old Motorola Defy mobile phone



      This is off my old Canon Powershot S3 IS compact.



      And this is off my ancient 2MP Canon Powershot A20



      I think my point is i personally like them all and they were taken on a vastly different array of devices, it isnt really the camera that takes the shot, it just records it. Id personally go for one of the compact ultra zooms like the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS (or brand of your choice) as they are massively versatile.
