"Something to keep in mind in assessing the camera's megapixel count is the increase in printer resolution."
You bring up a good point Ralph. Some digital colour printers like Epson, have a suggested resolution setting of 360ppi, for best results, not the 300dpi widely used for off-set presses in the printing industry.
Another item to consider is, because of computer algorithms, how you set your resolution is very important to achieve best results, especially in fine art printing. The setting you use to output your files should be divisible by 8, due to the structure of the binary code and byte order.
If you haven't noticed, the 360ppi for Epson Printers, 240ppi of most Nikon DSLR files, and even the 72ppi resolution of the better computer screens... are all divisible by 8.
