Will my P520 have better image quality if I shoot on on 18MP ,rather than on 8MP ? Or is the the higher MP JUST important for larger blow ups.

I been shooting it on 8MP to match my Nikon 8400...and the 8400 completely,with no problem -BLOWS AWAY THE P520 ON IMAGE QUALITY.

You see - I'm NOT doing blow-ups...
I do email stuff,and mainly just slideshows with music.


Larry(and I'm using a converter on my 8400 !)

Add note ; I went back and checked...on setting up the camera ; I set it to 'fine',rather than 'normal' ...I see that says IMAGE QUALITY.

But still if anyone knows -is there something about using camera on 18MP that will increase clearity/sharpness ?
