first I had a HP215 with 1.25Mpix, this camera was stolen from my car over night.
The next digi-cam was a Minolta Dimage S300 with 3.2Mpix. I was very happy with this camera, but the advertising in Germany was successful. I wanted a new camera with more and more pixel.
And I sale my Minolta by e-bay, than I bought a casio exilim with 4Mpix. I was so frustrated about the bad picture quality that I bought a new one.
The Canon "eos 300d" with 6Mpix. The exilim I use now only for business trips and for underwater pictures.
After 9 years it was time for a new camera the Canon 70D.
best regards and always well light
