One of the most common questions when photographing events from randoms is about my camera. People love to ask how many MP, and when they hear 4, they love to wonder aloud about the superiority (or at least competitiveness) of their 7 MP sony cyber whatever. So, I am wondering if there is a way to answer that question without sounding like I am defensive and avoiding it, but still conveying somehow the fact that all MP are not comparable. IS there some analogy I could use perhaps to convey the difference in the quality of the MP? Should I ignore the question and keep answering as I have (4) and not getting into this issue at all? Perhaps I should make a wine comparison (I live in NY so these are city folk, cannot give them a John Deere reference) and say their cybershot is like a 120 oz. "box 'o wine" and my camera is like a bottle of 1982 Chateau Le Snif (I'm joking, I don't know wines, but I guess I could look up something famous and good). Another words a "it's not the ounces of wine it's the quality". Maybe compare a 40 oz. of colt 45 to a bottle of imported beer, or a pound o stew meat compared to a 6 oz fillet? Anyway, would love to hear what others think or say when encountering this all too often issue. I certainly am not going to buy a D2X just so I Can say "12 MP", not yet at least.
