    right, i'm buying a camera online. just something to take basic holiday pictures with, the description says "6 million pixel output/ 3.1 million pixel effective"

    is this a posh way of saying "we're cheating you out of 3 million pixels"?

    thanks for taking the time out to read this :)

    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Basically.

    Take an 8x10 picture off your wall. Cut off 4" horizontally and 5" vertically. You now have an 8x10" picture that is output at 4x5" effective :wink:

    Nice marketing ploy huh?
