I want to get a digital camera for Christmas but I don't know which one I should tell my husband to get. At Walmart they have some really nice ones but the megapixels are from 7.1 all the way up to 10 and I just don't know what the difference is. Anyone care to explain it to me? ThanksAnswer Question

Don't get hung up on the megapixels. There are so many other things that make a good camera. Anything over 5 megapixels is going to be great - IF - you get a good camera. Think about things like Image Stabilization (this helps lower your chances of getting fuzzy, out of focus pictures), Optical Zoom (lets you zoom in to get those hard to see shots!) I'm not sure what your budget is but a camera site I like reviewed their "Top 10" cameras available for under $150 dollars. It was a great article.Â http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/Q408budgetgroup/
The "overall" winner was the Panasonic Lumix LZ8 (I actually bought this for a friend for 99.00 from B&H photo at Thanksgiving) another excellent choice was the Sony Cybershot w120.
Good luck! Feel free to message me if you have any questions, I just hunted this stuff down looking for a camera for my best friend.. .so it's fresh in my mind. :)
