I've posted here several times looking for help in a situation that\ncouldn't be helped. I needed high resolution photographs-\-*big*\ndimension, high resolution photographs-\-with a 4.1 HP camera.\n\nYesterday I bought a Canon PowerShot A620. It's a 7.1 and cheap (9\nusd). The clerk at the chain retail store where I bought it seemed\nreluctant to sell it to me because it didn't have a Zeiss lens. He\nsaid it was a "sports camera." I don't really know the difference\nbetween football and soccer, and I definitely don't need a camera for\nanything remotely sports-related.\n\nI need it for nature photographs, high resolution nature photographs.\n\nI've read reviews here on this Usenet group, and one person says only\nignoramuses (such as myself) fall for the high pixel count cameras,\nwhen camera sensors aren't geared to accommodate high pixel size.\n\nI told the clerk that depending on what I learn from my 'net research,\nI may return the camera today. I'd like to know if I can take high\nresolution photographs with a 6.1 camera, and if anyone could recommend\na 6.1 camera whose features make it more desirable than a 7.1 or\nhigher.\n\nI would also like to know exactly what is so desirable about a Zeiss\nlens IF YOU'RE AN AMATEUR. Thank you very much, as always.
