    an old 8 megapixel Canon PowerShot A630. So a six year obsolete camera is fine for this sort of thing. How many megapixels you need is a question that has to start wit what you are planning to do with the photos. Poster art? you will need a lot of megapixels. Going up to 8x10 you don't need a boatload of data on your computer.

    If the camera is within the return period and you wish to tell me what you want to do I'll suggest what I think is the very best compact starter camera. If you have $799 for a point and shoot, you can't go wrong with the Canon PowerShot G1 X.
